Dewey Mitchell named 2014 board chairman for Pasco Economic Development Council

Real estate magnate Dewey Mitchell is taking the reins as the 2014 board chairman of the Pasco Economic Development Council. Mitchell, owner of Prudential Tropical Real Estate and Prudential Commercial Real Estate Florida, will head the group responsible for governing the organization and providing leadership in implementing its strategic plan.

"Dewey Mitchell comes from a family with deep roots in Pasco County," said John Hagen, president/CEO of the Pasco Economic Development Council, a partnership that gets part of its budget from Pasco County government and part from the private sector. "As a member of our policy council, Dewey has been an important part of developing the plans that will drive future growth in Pasco County. We feel lucky to have him on board as our new chairman. 2014 is going to be a great year for Pasco."

Mitchell is no stranger to the Pasco EDC as he has served on the Board of Directors and its Policy Council for several years. In addition, Mitchell serves on the board of trustees for BayCare Health Systems and Saint Leo University, and sits on the board of directors for Morton Plant Mease Hospital. He is a former chairman of the Tampa Bay Partnership where he also served on its transportation committee. When not volunteering in the community, Mitchell has led one of the Tampa Bay area's primary real estate firms since 1984, and he maintains an active interest in the marketing of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use properties in Tampa Bay.

He replaces outgoing board chairman Trey Starkey.
