MIami-Dade economic development chief optimistic about city

Don?t tell Michael Finney that traffic is a show-stopper. Since moving to Miami early last summer, the new CEO of the county?s economic development agency has gotten all around the county just fine, thank you, using public transit and ride-sharing services. In fact, according to Finney, despite our mass transit shortcoming, Miami-Dade is one of the best-connected cities in the country.

As the CEO of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council, Finney is paid to be optimistic.

But he also has an outsider?s frame of reference. Before moving here, he traveled around the globe as an executive with a manufacturing company before moving into economic development for Rochester, N.Y., Ann Arbor, Mich, and the state of Michigan.

His take: Miami has plenty to offer companies, but it needs to do a better job of tooting its own horn.

Q: How did you get into the field of economic development ?
