Biographical Note

Walter B. Etling, Jr., an alumnus of the University of Miami, was a prominent figure in Miami commercial real estate and active community leader in the second half of the twentieth century.

Originally from Nutley, New Jersey, Etling served as an officer in the United State Navy during World War II. He then attended the University of Miami, where he graduated with a degree in economics in 1948. As a student, Etling was president of his sophomore class, an Ibis feature writer, drum major of the University of Miami band, and a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity.

Following graduation, Etling became involved in commercial real estate sales, working for the Allen Morris Company, and later the Keyes Company. In 1958, Etling founded the Walter Etling Company to provide highly specialized commercial real estate services, including sales, property management and leasing, investment consultation, condominium sales and management, site and property acquisitions, and syndicate formation. The company was originally located in the Alfred I. DuPont building in downtown Miami, but in 1974 moved to the Security Trust Company building at 700 Brickell Avenue.

In addition to his real estate activities, Etling served as president of PAEK, S.A., the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in Spain; founding director and secretary-treasurer of the Key Biscayne Savings and Loan Association; and director of the Key Biscayne Bank and Trust Company.

Etling has been an active leader in the community, serving as chairman of the Board of Governors and honorary curator for the Miami Science Museum; vice president of the Academy of Arts and Sciences of the Americas; vice president of the Economic Society of South Florida; a trustee of Third Century U.S.A.; chairman of the City of Miami Mayor’s Parks Committee; foreman of the Dade County Grand Jury; and a member of the Orange Bowl Committee; Kiwanis International; and the Metropolitan Dade County Community Relations Board. Etling was also nominated for the Dade County Outstanding Citizen’s Award in 1973.

In addition to community service, Etling has been active in service to the University of Miami, serving on the Board of Trustees from 1971 – 1974. He also served as President of the Alumni Association from 1969-1970, and Chairman of the University of Miami Parents Association. He was honored as the Alumnus of the Year in 1971. 

Walter Etling married Ann Hull and has two children, Christina and Russell.
