Scott Lippmann, former city manager of Williston, has been named the new Chief Executive Officer for CareerSource North Central Florida. Laura Guy-Rice has been appointed to serve as the Chief Financial Officer.
Lippmann began serving on June 8, 2020 and Guy-Rice will start on July 6, 2020.
The appointments are part of restructuring of the Region 9 Local Workforce Development Board approved last month by the Alachua and Bradford Board of County Commissioners. The boards created three separate entities to oversee workforce development in the two-county region: CareerSource North Central Florida, the Dual County Workforce Development Council and the North Central Florida Workforce Development Board.
Board Chair Dr. Jeffrey Tate said, “CareerSource North Central Florida has come through adversity to achieve a fresh structure for the future of the Alachua and Bradford County workforce. We look forward to the leadership of these experienced executives as our local workforce development board opens a new Job Center location and gears up to address the current challenges facing our workers.”
The Dual County Workforce Development Council is the governing body for the workforce region and is made up of three Alachua County commissioners and one Bradford County commissioner.
CareerSource North Central Florida (CSNCFL) is the Administrative Entity which reports directly to the Council, while providing staffing and support for the Council and Board. It is one of 24 regions in the CareerSource Florida network.
The North Central Florida Workforce Development Board is the strategic planning and policy development entity for the workforce region of Alachua and Bradford Counties.
