CoreNet gets its knight for now.

CoreNet Global, the professional association for corporate real estate executives, announced that Prentice Knight, Ph.D., has been named interim chief executive officer of CoreNet Global.

"I look forward to Prentice Knight's role as interim CEO," said CoreNet Global chairman Jeffrey L. Elie, vice president of global real estate and facilities for Kaplan, Inc. "Prentice has a high regard within the industry and will bring a strong level of continuity as we look for a permanent chief executive officer."

Knight previously served as chief executive officer of the International Development Research Council, a predecessor organization to CoreNet Global.

Most recently, he was chief learning officer of CoreNet Global, where he is responsible for all education and research programs. The group's learning team oversees a range of initiatives, including the CoreNet Global Applied Research Center that is currently examining evolving models of integrated workplace management. Other learning programs include the CoreNet Global Discovery Forum, a series of interactive, leading-edge symposia for senior corporate real estate executives. The group is also responsible for educational programming within the CoreNet Global Summits held worldwide, as well as the executive development program leading to CoreNet Global's widely-recognized MCR and SLCR professional designations.

Knight replaces Peggy K. Binzel who was named CEO in 2002, shortly after the launch of the new association in May of that year. Binzel has chosen to leave CoreNet Global in pursuit of additional professional opportunities.

Among Binzel's achievements is Corporate Real Estate 2010, an industry-wide research and leadership initiative on the changing role of corporate real estate and the changing nature of work. She has also led efforts to develop the CoreNet Global Knowledge Center online, which has become the association's most accessible channel for delivering a full range of industry case studies, research, benchmarking and other information on a 24/7 basis.

A search committee will soon be formed to find a Successor.
