The Community Foundation of the Florida Keys is pleased to announce the appointment of business leader Will Langley as Chair of its Board of Governors. Langley is the principal broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in the Florida Keys, overseeing 150 real estate professionals in four offices located in Key West, Big Pine Key, Marathon and Islamorada.

“My passion is for helping the community in every way I can. I love the Community Foundation because it serves hundreds of nonprofits countywide. Over the last four years we have been expanding Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices up the Keys and the Community Foundation is strategically doing the same. It’s the perfect fit and I’m eager to lead for greatest impact,” Langley said.
