Alex Sink turned a statewide election defeat into a new career

The journey from high-level banker to one of the state’s top elected officials to budding tech entrepreneur and startup rainmaker, for Alex Sink, started out at a quiet moment at home.

It came eight years ago, soon after Sink, onetime Florida president for Bank of America and the state’s elected CFO from 2007-2011, lost a grueling election to now-Florida Gov. Rick Scott. A Democrat, Sink came within 60,000 votes of becoming Florida’s first female governor.
