The Tampa Hillsborough EDC has attracted some of the brightest business leaders in the Tampa and Hillsborough County community. Each year, new executive officers are elected to help lead the organization on yet another successful year.


Our 2018 Executive Officers are:


Dr. Alan List
President and CEO, Moffitt Cancer Center


Dr. Alan F. List is the President and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center. He is internationally recognized for his many contributions in the development of novel, more effective treatment strategies for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML).


His pioneering work led to the development of lenalidomide (Revlimid®) from the laboratory to clinical trials, which went on to receive fast-track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and approval for the treatment of patients with MDS and multiple myeloma. This work transformed the natural history of MDS from a premalignant condition that progressed to malignancy requiring aggressive treatment to a condition managed in the outpatient setting with oral agents.


Prior to his current position, List served as Executive Vice President and Physician-in-Chief, the Vice Deputy Physician-in-Chief and the Chief of the Malignant Hematology Division at Moffitt, where he also holds the Morsani Endowed Chair.
