Governor Rick Scott Awards R2 Logistics with Governor’s Business Ambassador Award

Today, during a meeting of the Florida Cabinet, Governor Rick Scott recognized R2 Logistics for their commitment to creating jobs in Florida. The Governor’s Business Ambassador Award is given to individuals for their efforts in creating jobs and opportunities for Florida families.

Governor Scott said, “R2 Logistics is an industry leader in Northeast Florida and has demonstrated their commitment to creating opportunities for Florida families. Since December 2010, Florida has added more than 563,000 private sector jobs and the unemployment rate is below the national average. R2 Logistics brings economic growth and innovation to the Jacksonville community, and we thank them for being a key employer in our State.”

Chief Financial Officer for R2 Logistics Kees Hiatt said, “On behalf of the entire R2 Logistics team, receiving this recognition from Governor Scott and the State of Florida is truly an honor. A goal very early in our development was to create jobs and support the well-being of others. As a company we wouldn’t be where we are today without the hard work and dedication of all our employees.”
