As Progress Energy's Lyash relocates, Carlton Fields' Sasso picked at Tampa Bay Partnership



GARYSASSO Shifting gears, the Tampa Bay Partnership board nominated Gary Sasso, president and CEO with Tampa's Carlton Fields law firm to be the regional marketing group's incoming chairman.

The incoming chair position was supposed to go to Jeff Lyash, former CEO Of Progress Energy Florida in St. Petersburg, but Lyash was promoted to a new job at Progress Energy's corporate headquarters in Raleigh, N.C.

A vote will be held at the Tampa Bay Partnership's annual meeting on Nov. 20th. Sasso served this year as the group's secretary/treasurer.

We'll have a bit more on this transition later.
