Executive & Deputy Executive Directors
Braulio Baez is Executive Director of the Florida Public Service Commission. Mark Futrell and Apryl Lynn are Deputy Executive Directors at the commission.
PUF: You are all directors. Tell us about your roles.
Apryl Lynn: I am the Deputy Executive Director of administration. That is the administrative arm of the Commission. It involves human resources, staff, budgeting, customer outreach and assistance, clerk's office and the auditors. We're basically the behind-the-scenes of the technical component. We keep everything floating.
PUF: So, between you and Mark, you split up the Commission. Who has the better part, you or Mark?
Mark Futrell: It depends on the day.
Apryl Lynn: Yes. I think we both have an important role. We're sometimes quiet, and if something isn't working, you'll hear about it. We want to make sure everything works as smoothly as it can, so that people can do their work. We're like a service arm. Our clients are both internal and external.
