A leader in the Florida fuel reclamation market, Antonio Junior of Miami is the founder of Florida Conservation, Inc. In this role, he leads the Miami Springs company in providing efficient fuel reclamation services to rental car clients. Prior to founding Florida Conservation, Inc., Antonio Junior earned an MBA from Florida International University (FIU), which recently earned inclusion on The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of Great Colleges to Work For.

Every year, The Chronicle of Higher Education surveys employees of colleges and universities to compile the list. In 2017, FIU was the only institution to attain Honor Roll designation by earning recognition in all 12 survey categories, which include Collaborative Governance, Confidence in Senior Leadership, Diversity, Job Satisfaction, Teaching Environment, and Compensation and Benefits.

The assessment process begins with an institutional audit regarding demographics and workplace policies, followed by an anonymous survey of faculty, staff, and administrators. This is the second straight year in which FIU achieved Honor Roll but the first time the school earned recognition across all 12 categories.
