Former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll lands big job in small arms

by George Bennett | April 24th, 2013

Jennifer Carroll, who resigned abruptly as Florida’s lieutenant governor in March, has landed a job as a senior adviser to Global Digital Solutions, which plans to merge with a small-arms manufacturing company.

Global Digital Solutions says it provides “knowledge-based and culturally attuned social consulting and security-related solutions in unsettled areas.” It plans to merge with Airtronic USA, Inc., which bills itself as the nation’s “largest woman-owned small arms manufacturer.”

Carroll is slated to become president and chief operating officer when the merger is complete, according to a press release.

“I’m delighted to join Global Digital Solutions as a senior advisor,” Carroll said in the press release. “And I look forward to working closely with the team at GDSI and Airtronic to seize what I believe are truly enormous growth opportunities both in the domestic and global arenas.”

Carroll resigned March 13, shortly after Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators questioned her about Allied Veterans of the World, a St. Augustine-based nonprofit accused of running an illegal gambling ring. Carroll, who once represented Allied Veterans as a public relations consultant, has not been accused of any wrongdoing. She said she resigned to avoid being a “distraction” to Gov. Rick Scott.
