Joe Colca: Harnessing the power of digitization, data, and design to drive remarkable customer experiences (CX) is a deep passion for Joe. As the Senior Vice President of Digital Experience at VyStar, he is tasked with leading the digital transformation journey to bring impactful experiences and changes for its members. Part of this journey entails Joe exploring and developing partnerships with leading global and local-based financial institutions and technology providers to further the culture of innovation in Jacksonville.
