Todd Pressman of Clearwater is president of Pressman and Associates, Inc.
Pressman was appointed to the Governing Board in April 2005 and has served as Board secretary, vice chair and chair. His current term ends March 1, 2014.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Pressman graduated from Beachwood High School and then attended Ohio State University. He lived in Dallas, Texas, and in Miami before moving to the Oldsmar/Palm Harbor area. He formerly held a State of Florida Real Estate license.
Pressman has spent the last two decades in the professional pursuit of land use issues, political campaigns and lobbying. These issues have always been of great interest to him from his teen years to the present. His personal interest has remained at the local levels of government—where growth and land use issues are generally found. He believes that water issues have become the priority of these matters. His company has represented over 100 separate businesses and interests throughout the Country on a wide variety of issues.
Pressman has served on the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council as a member from March 2000 through October 2004, the Hillsborough County Code Enforcement Board from October 1991 through March 1993, and the U.S. 19 Task Force and Pinellas County Re-Development Committee. He also has served on the board for the Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services and as a volunteer for the 5-to-1 Task Force.
