President & CEO of the Building Industry & Land Development Association (BILD)
At the heart of R-LABS is an outstanding group of leaders who advocate for innovation in real estate.
Real estate and housing are critical and complicated, and governments need help. Industry innovation is essential to solving the many interrelated problems. However, it requires a detailed understanding of the problems, their vectors, and how to include various levels of governments, policy makers and regulators to bring transformative change to the industry.
R-LABS seeks the council of trusted industry leaders with deep and diverse expertise who will help us better understand industry problems, surface potential obstacles, and draw connections with other issues. The Industry Issue + Transformation Council (I+T Council) works closely with our teams to provide input at every stage of our venture process. Through R-LABS and the I+T Council, industry innovation is more effectively aligned and transferred across the real estate and housing sub-sectors.
