On Friday, the Florida Chamber of Commerce announced the appointment of Lee Sandler, a founding member of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, to a one-year term as Miami Dade/Monroe County Regional Board chair.

His role in this position: to connect South Florida business leaders with movers and shakers in the Florida Legislature, to drive pro-business policies from Tallahassee.

Sandler described the appointment as a chance “to help unite business leaders so that we can continue to keep Florida moving in the right direction.”

Meanwhile, Mark Wilson, the president and CEO of the Florida Chamber, said that “in his role as a Florida Chamber regional chair, Lee will volunteer his time and talent in support of the Florida Chamber’s efforts to advocate for solutions that help make Florida more competitive.”

Sandler has been an integral force in South Florida business, yet he has a global footprint. His law firm and his consulting firm have domestic presences in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Baltimore. Additionally, the firm has international offices in Ottawa, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Beijing and Hong Kong.

He also has been integral in every international Free Trade agreement negotiated since 1979, and has been appointed by the last five presidential administrations to advise the federal government on international trade negotiations of all types.
