The industry’s future leaders

November 9, 2015 admin

Institutional Real Estate, Inc. held its second annual Springboard forum last month at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. Springboard is a program to help develop, mentor and guide the next generation of leaders in the industry — an exclusive, invitation-only gathering.

As with 2014’s event, a number of the industry’s experienced senior executives graciously volunteered to help mentor at this year’s October meeting by facilitating small-group discussions. This year’s mentors were Jeff Barclay, managing director, Goldman Sachs & Co.; John D’Angelo, managing director, RealFoundations, Inc.; Mike DiRè, director of real estate investments, California State Teachers’ Retirement System; Steve Gruber, manager, Real Asset Portfolio Management; Susan Levine, managing director, RCG Longview; Glenn Lowenstein, partner and CIO, Lionstone Investments; and Scott Stuckman, executive managing director, USAA Real Estate Company.

Attendees also had the opportunity to hear from and speak with special guest Joseph Azelby, author of Kiss Your BUT Good-Bye and managing director of J.P. Morgan Asset Management – Global Real Assets.

This event was a great way for these young executives to make vital connections they will likely have for the rest of their careers.

Despite looming thunderstorms, the outdoor activity went off without a hitch and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time. Here are a few highlights from the event:
