NAIOP New York Names First Woman President


Jodi Shaw NAIOP NY’s new president is a senior director in the local office of Keller Augusta, an executive search firm.



NEW YORK CITY—NAIOP’S local chapter here has appointed Jodi Shaw as its president. The first woman to ever serve in the role, she also is a senior director in the local office of Keller Augusta, an executive search firm.

Shaw reportedly has displayed significant dedication to NAIOP New York City since joining the organization in 2012. She most recently served as the chapter’s president elect, and previously served as secretary and chair of the Developing Leaders’ Committee, where she reportedly was integral in creating programming to connect young professionals with industry leaders and spearheaded many events.

In her new position, Shaw will focus on enhancing the chapter’s education, networking and advocacy efforts and expanding its membership, with the goal of bettering the city’s commercial real estate landscape. She has 13 years of commercial real estate experience.

As senior director at Keller Augusta, she focuses on business development and recruiting for construction, development, investment and management clients, here and throughout the tri-state area.

“Jodi has a long record of dedication to the real estate industry, and we’re extremely pleased with her election as the New York City chapter’s new president,” says Thomas Bisacquino, president and CEO of NAIOP. “Jodi is renowned for her ability to engage membership and develop programming that benefits the career objectives of real estate professionals. Her vision for 2017 will go a great way toward enhancing the organization’s networking and professional development opportunities and increasing the value we provide to the industry.”

Programs being planned for later this year include tours of notable development projects here, networking sessions, the organization’s annual golf outing and events designed to increase the involvement of NAIOP NYC’s developing leaders.

“Over the past five years, Jodi’s passionate work on behalf of NAIOP NYC has been unmatched, and our recent growth is a testament to her unwavering commitment to the organization,” states Rick Lechtman, NAIOP NYC’s founding president. “Jodi’s leadership skills have been instrumental in increasing member involvement, and as president, she will be able to utilize her unique talents to increase the organization’s impact.”

He continues, “With Jodi at the helm, we’re confident that 2017 will be a banner year for NAIOP NYC, as we enhance the educational, networking and lobbying efforts we provide on behalf of the real estate development and investment industry. We are an organization to a diverse group of professionals and are excited to have Jodi serve as our first woman leading our chapter.”

“In the daily hustle and bustle of the industry, it can be easy to overlook networking and other activities that are essential to developing a career in today’s rapidly evolving real estate industry,” notes Shaw. “As we implement our 2017 programming, we’re committed to broadening our slate of educational events, and making them accessible to a diverse group of industry professionals. These activities, in tandem with our lobbying efforts, will serve to promote the real estate industry at large and, ultimately, broader society.”

In addition to Shaw, other members of NAIOP NYC’s 2017 executive board include, Rick Lechtman, Marcus & Millichap Capital Corp., who will serve as president-elect; Thomas Lee, Boston Properties, treasurer; Tiffany Greenidge, Empire State Realty Trust, secretary and board members Robert Jackson, Rockefeller Group; Greg Maurer-Hollaender, CBRE, 2016 president and Brian Jauntig, Atlas Capital, 2015 president.
