Jeff Atwater, a fifth-generation Floridian, was elected Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Nov. 2, 2010. Guided by his family’s time-honored tradition of serving the community, Atwater was inspired by his parents’ values instilling a hard work ethic, a commitment to family, and a deep sense of appreciation for service to community.

Atwater’s commitment to public service began in 1993 when he served as vice mayor of North Palm Beach. In 2000, he began his legislative service as a member of the Florida House of Representatives. Two years later, he was elected to the Florida Senate where he continued to serve the people of Broward and Palm Beach counties. After chairing high-profile Senate committees, Atwater gained the unanimous support of his fellow senators in becoming Senate president and led the Senate from 2008 through 2010.

As a community banker for more than 25 years, his background provides him with unique insights into banking, insurance, finance, fiscal responsibility and the burden that taxes and regulations place on small businesses and families.

Atwater earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Florida. Atwater has been an active member of the community, serving on several advisory boards, including United Way of Palm Beach County, Boy Scouts of America, Children’s Home Society of Broward County, and 5-Star Magnet Program of Palm Beach Gardens High School and Roger Dean Stadium.
