Ron Pressman Named Global CEO of Urban Land Institute
He will succeed W. Ed Walter, who led ULI for the past four years.
ULI Northwest is searching for a member to join our small team of highly energetic professionals. Our creative workgroup is the productive force behind an array of programs and initiatives in real estate development and land use in the Pacific Northwest. As a local district council of the Urban Land Institute, we carry forth ULI’s mission to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide.
ULI Northwest currently serves more than 1,000 Institute members in the states of Washington and Oregon. ULI is dedicated to improving the environments in which all people live, work, and play. As an integral part of the district council team, the Manager serves as a liaison among ULI members, local staff, and ULI headquarters, located in Washington, D.C. Often, the Manager is the face of ULI Northwest in Oregon/SW Washington, either facilitating groups or on the front line providing assistance and information. It is imperative that the Manager be friendly, professional, and an informed resource about the Institute. The Manager travels to ULI events throughout Washington and Oregon and occasionally works early mornings and evenings for events. Some national and international travel occurs as well.
The strongest candidate will be skilled in both people and project management, with effective verbal and written communication and customer service skills. The Manager will see and steer potential in groups and implement a balance of stepping up to lead and knowing when to lead from behind. The Manager will have a strong sense of the “big picture” and also carefully implement projects, attending to and tracking all necessary details. The best candidate will be a highly organized and flexible team member, able to adapt fluidly and quickly in a fast-paced work environment.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are the pillars of sustainable, thriving communities, and ULI is dedicated to improving the environments in which all people live, work, and play. Over the past year and a half, ULI Northwest has launched several key DEI initiatives, including two member-led DEI committees in Seattle and Portland. The Manager will play an important role in developing the DEI initiatives in Portland, with a focus on building opportunities for new ULI members across the region. Therefore, it is important that the Manager possess the ability to build authentic relationships with racially and socioeconomically diverse communities and considers DEI in all that ULI does. The calls for racial justice throughout the United States have strengthened our resolve and accelerated our efforts to promote DEI as a fundamental force for creating thriving communities for the future. We are committed to building a diverse employee base and strongly encourage candidates of color to apply.
The Manager’s main responsibility is to oversee programs and initiatives that support the Executive Director and facilitate the district council’s goals and objectives. This includes working closely with the Executive Director, Portland Chair, Seattle Manager, local ULI staff, and Portland committee members and assisting with supervising outside consultants.
While there is some administrative support from other staff and consultants, the Manager is also responsible for data management and administrative and event planning tasks.
ULI has a robust benefits package that includes health, dental, and life insurance; vacation leave; and a retirement plan. Compensation is commensurate with experience. For more information, click here.
