Logan takes the reins at IOREBA.
The Industrial and Office Real Estate Brokers Association of the New York Metropolitan Area Inc. (IOREBA) has announced the installation of its 2009-2010 officers.
One of the nation's oldest and largest regional commercial real estate trade groups, IOREBA has roots dating back to 1927 and an elite membership of brokerage and industry-related professionals based in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
The new slate of officers is headed by Charles O. Logan Jr, who has been named as president. He is president and CEO of The Aztec Corporation in Iselin, N.J., and has been involved with IOREBA for 24 years. Most recently, he served as the group's vice president and has been instrumental in growing the organization in both membership and member value.
"At our core, we aim to help each other benefit from shared relationships and experiences," Logan said.
"IOREBA members rely on one another for valuable perspectives, knowledge and skills that unveil and create opportunity. This ultimately makes us become more beneficial to our clients."
Sean Brady, senior director of Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. in East Rutherford, N.J., will serve as vice president; David E. Knee, managing director of Jones Lang LaSalle in Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., will serve as secretary; and David Simon, chief operating officer of Colliers Houston & Co. in Teaneck, N.J., will serve as treasurer for the coming year.
IOREBA's officers also include a 15-member executive committee and a senior council comprised of more than 30 industry leaders and past presidents.
"The past 12 months have marked a year of growth and change for IOREBA, and it has been a pleasure to observe and contribute to this progress as president," noted outgoing president for 2008-2009 and senior council member David E. Violette, vice president of Colliers Houston & Co.'s property management division.
