Mike Field’s vocation is being vice president of credit risk for JPMorgan Chase in Jacksonville.
His avocation is being an entrepreneur that helps others build their businesses in the urban core.
“I think Downtown is a unique environment. It’s an opportunity waiting for solutions,” said Field.
He helped develop Northeast Florida’s food truck movement, Jaxsons Night Market and most recently, The Court Urban Food Park.
It all started when he left town.
After graduating from college, the Jacksonville native went into finance in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and San Francisco, where he saw what those cities did to attract business to their centers and visitors from the suburbs.
While in Atlanta, Field said he developed an interest that turned into a passion for urban planning and revitalization.
He came back home in 2005 just in time for Super Bowl XXXIX.
