A MESSAGE FROM THE NAIOP-WI PRESIDENT
Dear NAIOP-WI Members:
I am pleased to be writing you today as the bearer of good news! As most of you aware, we have been involved in an extensive executive search for the next leader of our association. The Board of Directors felt it was important to move to a full-time executive position to represent NAIOP-WI’s expanding influence, geography and membership base. We met with several impressive and qualified candidates from across the state, but one individual clearly stood out to the executive search team as the perfect fit to lead our association into our second decade. It is with great enthusiasm that I am able to share with you today that Kirsten Lee Villegas will join NAIOP-WI as our Chief Executive Officer, effective Monday, July 20th!
Kirsten comes to NAIOP following an impressive tenure as the State Executive Officer of the Wisconsin Builders Association, and formerly served as President & CEO of the Waukesha County Museum. You can read more about Kirsten’s impressive background in our official media release, which will go out today.
As I have said before, it is an exciting time in our industry and in our association. We are very confident that under Kirsten’s leadership, and your continued involvement, NAIOP-WI has a very bright future. We look forward to introducing many of you to Kirsten at next week’s NAIOP-WI Boat Cruise on Thursday, July 23rd. If you haven’t already registered, there is still space available so visit www.naiop-wi.org to register.
Hope to see you all there or soon at another upcoming NAIOP event.
