Tallahassee attorney Randy Hanna, the managing partner at Bryant Miller Olive for the past 14 years, has been named chancellor of Florida’s State College System.
Hanna, 53, succeeds Will Holcomb, who announced his retirement almost a year ago. Hanna will start Nov. 4.
Hanna has deep roots in higher education. He was a member of the board at Tallahassee Community College from 1991-95; chair of the state college board until it was disbanded; and a four-year member of Florida A&M’s Board of Trustees. He is now on the board at the University of West Florida.
“This is very exciting,” Hanna said. “It’s an honor to follow Chancellor Holcomb.”
As chancellor, Hanna will oversee the 28 four-year and two-year colleges in Florida, including TCC.
Hanna, chair-elect of the Economic Development Council, did not know if he would be able to fulfill that position.
