Subject: Announcement

Dear Law School Community,

I am pleased to announce that Mr. Richard L. Klaas of Naples, Florida, has joined the Law School’s Board of Governors. Mr. Klaas is a distinguished business leader whose breadth of experience and detailed knowledge of the southwest Florida business community will be a great benefit to the Law School as it makes final preparations for its relocation to Naples.

Mr. Klaas is a partner in Klaas Capital Group, a company which was instrumental in the development of 10,000 acres surrounding Florida Gulf Coast University. Prior to founding Klaas Capital Group, he was the President of the Lely Development Corporation, a national real estate development company. In 1988, he was named one of southwest Florida’s “heavyweight” business leaders by Businessview Magazine.

Klaas has been active in a number of civic organizations, including the Economic Development Council of Collier County, the City of Naples Planning Advisory Board, and the 20th Judicial Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission. He has also been a member of the board of directors of several banks, including Harris Trust of Florida and Village Banc of Naples, which he founded in 1997. Mr. Klaas is a member of Leadership Florida, an organization of more than 800 community leaders from across the state.

Originally from Indiana, Mr. Klaas earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University. Following his graduation, he served as a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve.


Acting Dean Eugene R. Milhizer
