Buckhorn, Hagan, Chillura heading to New York on business recruiting trip



Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Hillsborough County Commission chairman Ken Hagan and Temple Terrace Mayor Frank Chillura join business recruiters Wednesday on a trip to pitch some big financial firms in New York.

The three-day trop will target not only banks but also firms that could look to expand shared services operations. All companies on the schedule already have a presence locally: PricewaterhouseCoopers, Time Warner, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Citi, DTCC and UBS.

The delegation also includes three officials from  the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp., which organized the trip: Florida Blue's David Pizzo (the EDC's chairman), SunTrust Bank's Allen Brinkman (its vice chairman) and EDC president and CEO Rick Homans.
