3 questions with 2 Wells Fargo Orlando execs on building better businesses

Metro Orlando enjoyed a big year of economic growth — led by some major corporate mergers and acquisitions — and it’s expected to continue into this year. In 2018, Melbourne-based Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) and New York-based L3 Technologies Inc. (NYSE: LLL) announced plans for a $33.5 billion merger, while Stuart-based Seacoast Banking Corp. of Florida (Nasdaq: SCBF) acquired Orlando’s First Green Bank for $115 million. Moving ahead, the University of Central Florida Institute for Economic Competitiveness forecast multiple positive indicators in 2019, including rising per capita income and total employment.
