  • Winnie Hui, Columbia Business School

The Fellows will present themselves at the NAREIM Executive Officer meeting, which is being held in Austin from Oct 6-8, and which also features futurist Peter Schwarz, conversations on retention and return, DEI and alternative investment strategies – with insights from Fred Tuomi, the former CEO of Blackstone, Starwood and Colony’s single family homes platforms.


The Executive Officer committee judges included: Ross Berry, New York Life Real Estate Investors; Josh Myerberg, Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing; Kristin Renaudin, Stockbridge Capital Group; Greg Michaud, Voya; Rick Hurd, Waterton Associates.
