NAREIM is pleased to reveal the new class of Jeff Barclay Fellows.

The Class of 2021-22 was selected by NAREIM’s Executive Officer committee and is one of the strongest fields yet – with a total of 68 candidates nominated from 11 graduate programs. In 2020, NAREIM received 45 nominations from 8 schools.

As NAREIM returns to in-person meetings – kick starting on Sept 28 with Architecture & Engineering and followed by the Executive Officer meeting on Oct 6 – five candidates were selected as finalists to participate in and introduce themselves to the NAREIM members.

  • Javier DeLeon, USC, Marshall School of Business & Price School of Public Policy

  • Winnie Hui, Columbia Business School

  • Nicole Lam, DePaul University

  • Daniel Mandel, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Wisconsin School of Business

  • Samantha McPadden, Columbia University, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation

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.

NAREIM members can check out the resumes of the Fellows – and all who applied to the program. The schools included: Chicago Booth; Columbia; DePaul; Harvard; MIT; New York Schack; Northwestern/Kellogg; Roosevelt; UCLA; USC; Wisconsin/Graaskamp. 

NAREIM members may check out the 68 resumes in the secure member-only pages.

The Class of 2021-22 Fellows will participate in other NAREIM activities through the year, including contributing to the Spring issue of NAREIM Dialogues and connecting directly with senior leaders within our member firms.
