I am humbled that a little over ten years later our business has been able to achieve all of these goals and bring justice to folks so desperately in need of it. I wake up every day feeling blessed to be leading this business with my law partner, and my life with my wife, and I have the University of Florida to thank for instilling in me the core values that have shaped my life and brought me to this place.”
Of companies making the ranks of the Gator100 list, the president of the University of Florida, Ken Fuchs said, ”The Gator100 honors UF alumni from across the university who are founding and growing amazing companies around the country.
