Rodney Langer is a senior investment advisor for The Katsikos Group Inc., specializing in investment sales of multi-tenant and net lease properties. He is directly responsible for producing more than $100 million in transactions, representing 2.5 million square feet, in the past nine years.
Despite a busy schedule, he finds time to give back to the community. A South Florida native, Langer recalls becoming first involved in charitable work during high school and then college. For the grandson of a union president in Miami and as the son of a man actively involved in civic and charitable service work, volunteerism is in Rodney’s DNA.
After graduating from Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Langer earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Florida and then a master’s degree in applied American politics from Florida State University. A graduate of the Leadership Miami program, Langer currently serves on the board of the Rotary Club of Coral Gables while also devoting time as an active member of the Realtors Commercial Alliance of Greater Miami and the Beaches, the Commercial and Industrial Association of South Florida and The Self Storage Association of Florida.
Over the years, Langer has held leadership positions in numerous business and economic development organizations. He served on the boards of directors of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and the Associated Builders and Contractors – East Coast Chapter. He also served as chair of the Miami-Dade Aviation Alliance and president of the Greater Seventh Avenue Improvement Association. In 1996, he was elected by his South Florida business peers to serve as a delegate to the White House Conference on Small Business.
As this year’s chair of the Rotary Club of Coral Gables fundraising committee, Langer has organized a series of wine dinners that not only will benefit the Rotary Club Foundation but also four local charities including the Coral Gables Woman’s Club’s May Van Sickle Children’s Dental Clinic, First Tee Foundation, Shake-A-Leg and Kristi House.
Langer lives in Coral Gables with his wife, Blanca, and three children — Andrew, Katrina and Jake. A great father, Rod’s hobbies revolve around his children. He enjoys the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate, whether it is directly with an individual or through organization that serve those in need.
