Our very own Todd Roobin recently passed the FFEAC Chairman torch over to Agustin (Gus) Corbella! Elected by the Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory Council, Corbella stood out as a worthy candidate. He most recently served in the position of Vice-Chair of the Council from July 2010-June 2011, and the previous three years served as a member of the FFEAC.
Corbella is the Director of the Governmental Affairs Practice of Greenberg Traurig's Tallahassee office. He has an extensive background in state government, serving as Chief of Staff to the Florida Senate President as well as staff director for the majority offices of both the Florida Senate and House of Representatives. His role as chief adviser to the Legislature's most prominent leaders provided Gus with a broad knowledge of the process and issues before the Legislature.
In taking on this esteemed position, Corbella will have more influence within the Council, which serves as an advisory board to the Division of Strategic Business Development and to the Florida Office of Film and Entertainment. He will play an important role in providing these offices with industry insight and expertise related to developing, marketing, promoting, and service to Florida's entertainment industry.
