Job creators like Julian have helped create nearly 1.5 million jobs across the state over the past seven years, and we will keep fighting to help them grow and add opportunities for Floridians.”


Julian Correa, CEO of KnightSpeed Moving, said, “I would like to thank Governor Scott for recognizing me with the Young Entrepreneur Award today and for his work to make Florida a great place for businesses like KnightSpeed Moving to succeed.
