“Richard Prudom is a proven and dedicated public servant with extensive leadership experience within Florida's government and I am pleased to announce he will continue his service to our state as secretary of the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

Prior to this role, Prudom served the Department of Corrections as chief of staff, where he helped advise the secretary on a number of internal and external policy matters while working to set the agenda for the agency and ensured that its mission was met.
