Roger Heinen is the new Chair of CFFK’s Board of Governors for 2015-16. Roger is an artist, software developer, angel investor, and a Director of Monotype, the leading supplier of digital fonts and typefaces. He replaces retiring Chairman Robert Spottswood, who served five years on CFFK’s Board of Governors, the last two years as Chair.
“I’m honored to serve as the next Chairman of the Community Foundation,” said Roger. “I will join with our Board and Staff to work hard to capitalize on the momentum we’ve built over the past several years under Robert’s guidance. I strongly support our mission of helping charitable organizations become more effective and helping donors support important causes. It’s a good combination for the people who love the Keys.”
In addition to Roger, CFFK’s newly elected Executive Committee is Brian Wruble (vice chair), Michael Ingram (vice chair – marketing), Rita Linder (vice chair – grants), Bill Porter (vice chair – development), Karen Sharp (vice chair – finance and treasurer), and Susanne Woods (secretary).
