NEW JERSEY – The Industrial and Office Real Estate Brokers Association of the New York Metropolitan Area Inc. (IOREBA) has introduced the organization's slate of officers for 2011-2012. With roots dating back to 1927, IOREBA is a membership organization of brokerage and real estate industry-related professionals doing business in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
IOREBA's new executive leadership is headed by David Simon, Managing Principal, New Jersey for Cassidy Turley. A long-time member of IOREBA, Simon most recently served as vice president of the organization.
“I look forward to building on the momentum created by Sean Brady over the past year," said Simon. "He deserves special recognition for establishing new broker networking events, the Market Research Reports portal on our website and the broker awards program, with the 2011 winners announced at IOREBA's recent Annual Golf & Tennis Outing. These initiatives resulted in increased membership and contributed to IOREBA’s success.”
"I have attended IOREBA events for many years, and have found this organization to be extremely valuable," Simon said. "I have developed strong relationships with professionals involved in many different facets of the real estate industry, and I am excited to work with the other executive and strategic committee members this year to enhance the educational, professional and networking opportunities available to all IOREBA members."
