NAIOP Research Foundation Names 2023-2025 Visionaries Class

February 27, 2023 – The NAIOP Research Foundation has announced the 2023-2025 class of Visionaries, a group of eight rising commercial real estate professionals who are selected based on their career accomplishments, history of involvement with NAIOP, and a demonstrated interest in the Research Foundation’s mission.

Visionaries have an unparalleled opportunity to learn from and network with senior professionals through the exclusive mentorship program, which pairs a Visionary with up to three different Research Foundation Governors each year who can share their advice and valuable industry insights. Visionaries also play an important role in the Foundation’s research development process by sharing their perspectives and expertise.
