Florida CCIM Southwest District May Meeting
Topic: “Growing Hendry County Commercial Real Estate Opportunities in Rural Southwest Florida”

Speaker:  Michael Swindle, Hendry County Commissioner, District 4

Michael Swindle was appointed to the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners in November of 2013. Commissioner Swindle served as the Chair of the Board from 2015-2017 after being elected to the position by his colleagues for two consecutive years.

Commissioner Swindle’s life passion lies in his position as the Director of Adult Education and Workforce Development for the Hendry County School Board. Since acquiring the role of Director, Swindle has implemented programs geared toward individuals obtaining certificates in trade work such as welding, building construction, industrial mechanics and nursing. Commissioner Swindle’s focus is to ensure that citizens of Hendry County have the opportunity and tools needed to excel and succeed in their hometowns.

As a County Commissioner, Swindle is known for advocating for common sense approaches to improve Hendry County services. He is a constant advocate for economic development, especially in terms of small, local business growth. As a landowner, farmer and educator, Swindle has a grasp of Hendry County’s heritage but is committed to moving the County forward as a key player in the future development of Southwest Florida.

Swindle is an alum of Florida Association of Counties (FAC) Advanced County Commissioners (ACC) program and is a 2018 Torchbearer, a FAC group for leaders of government that imparts knowledge, truth, and inspiration in others who are in the ACC program.

Swindle currently serves on the 2017-18 FAC Legislative Executive Committee and is a member of the 2018-19 FAC Board of Directors.
