Executive Director Laura Kelley has just announced her intention to retire from the Central Florida Expressway Authority in 2023.
Kelley has been with CFX since 2014, the same year the Florida Legislature expanded the agency’s jurisdiction from Orange County to the City of Orlando and Lake, Seminole, and Osceola counties, with Brevard County joining three years later. She currently oversees the management of 125-miles of expressway and a $4 billion five-year work plan.
Kelley previously served as the executive director of the Florida Transportation Commission and is a graduate of Florida State’s College of Business.
“Ms. Kelley’s retirement next year will mark the end of a remarkable career with CFX,” said Sean Parks, the CFX Board Chair and Lake County Commissioner. “Ms. Kelley’s steadfast commitment to service and operational excellence has guided this Agency to even stronger financial footing, delivering the largest five-year work plans in our history. We want to thank her for shaping CFX’s purpose and culture by building an experienced, talented team, expanding regional partnerships, and delivering long-term sustainable value for years to come. I certainly look forward to discussing CFX’s succession plan at the upcoming board meeting.”
Her retirement will take effect on March 1, 2023.
