REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Real Estate Investment Advisory Committee is comprised of both internal senior executives and independent, external directors that have significant industry experience.  The role of the committee is to provide independent advice, industry expertise and guidance on major investment decisions.
