Pinellas is at the center of the Tampa Bay market and according to the Pinellas Economic Development Council, the current population is expected to grow from 4 million to 6 million by 2030. “Whether it’s downtown Clearwater or downtown St. Petersburg, both areas in the county are in the midst of major growth with business expansions and new building of commercial, mixed use, residential and planned communities,” says Jennifer.  The region is ranked number 20 in the U.S. for job growth and boasts an economy of $70 billion in consumer spending and a labor force of more than 2 million.

St. Petersburg, located in south Pinellas, had a record-setting $782 million construction value in 2019. “Even through the pandemic, plans of expansion and work continued. Current projections of growth for the County indicate a high need to fill the skilled worker gap,” says Jennifer.

According to the City of Clearwater, upcoming development includes half a billion dollars in new construction. This includes a revitalization of some of the World’s best beaches, the development of a 710,000-squarefoot light industrial research and technology complex, and an expansion of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium – made famous by Winter, the dolphin who was rescued and fitted with a prosthetic fin.

Jennifer says, “Pinellas has a strong base of employers, from small business to Fortune 500s and new businesses moving in. I look forward to building relationships with Pinellas County companies so that I can ease their labor shortage and work with them on creative workforce solutions. Our network of the best qualified and skilled trade workers is ready to be put to work!”
