PhillipLanham started his new job as president and CEO of Gulf Coast Community Foundation on June 1, and in his first column for the Southwest Florida Sun-Sentinel, he explains why he came to the Gulf Coast.

"I vacationed in this area frequently with my family, and when the opportunity to work here presented itself, everything seemed to align and it was the best decision for me and my family," he writes.

"What drew me to this region are the amazing people, the culture of philanthropy, and the incredible assets in this community," he continues.

"Our region is brimming with beautiful beaches, dynamic arts and cultural organizations, rich history, generosity, and so much more.

Every turn I take, there is something new and exciting to explore, from the Venice Urban Forest, to the Bay Park, to the Legacy Trail and beyond....

I am impressed that here, coupled with the perfect sunsets, our inspiring community works together to address opportunities and celebrate our greatest wins."
