Industry leaders committed to growing Center for Real Estate
The Center for Real Estate at the Rutgers Business School, an academic program positioned to inspire the next generation of real estate leaders, is pleased to announce the roster of its 2017 advisory board and its emerging leaders’ council.
The founding members of the executive committee signed up for the third straight year, demonstrating their commitment to building the Center for Real Estate. The majority of the advisory board members have been with the center since its inception and seven are new this year. Members of the emerging leaders’ council were nominated by the center’s advisory board based on their impressive careers and contributions to the real estate industry and leadership capabilities. The engagement of members of the advisory board and emerging leaders’ council continues to enhance the center’s efforts in mentoring, research, curriculum, scholarships as well as conferences and events.
"Having an engaged advisory board and emerging leaders council of the best and the brightest in commercial real estate allows us to develop cutting edge curriculum, provide internships and job opportunities for students in the program, and create relevant conferences and events,” said Carl Goldberg of Canoe Brook Management LLC, who has served as co-chair of the center’s executive committee since its inception. "It is their status within the industry that complements the center as we advance to the top real estate program in the country."
Jimmy Hanson of The Hampshire Companies, also a co-chair of the executive committee, said the center has been able to accomplish so much in the past three years, thanks to the commitment of the advisory board and the members of the emerging leaders’ council.
"Many of them have committed their time to work on the scholarship committee to assess the students with the merit and need for their support," Hanson said. "A host of them have been mentors to the students, providing career guidance and insights. Thanks to their commitment, the Center for Real Estate at the Rutgers Business School has the potential to graduate students that can vie for any job in the industry and be successful."
