DELTONA – A 30-year veteran of relationship-based business development has joined Deltona as the new business development administrator.

Jerry Mayes will serve current Deltona businesses and market Deltona to potential business recruits elsewhere. Mayes was hired to answer questions from business people about doing business in Deltona.

Mayes has concentrated on the Florida marketplace, but has multi-state experience.

The City Commission wants the business development administrator to advance Deltona’s goal of sustainable economic growth, to increase the business tax base, provide more job opportunities with higher wages and improve the overall quality of life of residents.
