Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater announced on Friday that he plans on leaving his job at the end of the legislative session to take a job at Florida Atlantic University.

According to Politico, Atwater accepted the position of Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Chief Financial Officer for the University. He said that he would continue pushing for the priorities of the Department of Financial Services.

He will be responsible for leading the FAU’s strategic initiatives and finding economic development opportunities as well as managing the school’s finances and budget.

With Atwater leaving, the Governor will have to appoint a new CFO.

Gov Scott said:

The role of the CFO is incredibly important to our state and I will begin the process to appoint someone to serve Florida families.

Atwater also stated:

When I would have preferred to embrace this opportunity at a later date, the timing of crucial University initiatives warranted at an accelerated transition. In the near term, I will remain focused on the Department of Financial Services.
