Developing Leader Award
Tustin, CA (September 18, 2017) — NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, selected seven young professionals to receive its prestigious 2017 Developing Leaders Award. NAIOP SoCal is honored to announce that chapter member Kelsey Stuart Schultes, an investment manager with Swift Real Estate Partners, was named to the list of recipients. The annual award honors up-and-coming professionals under the age of 35 for their exceptional accomplishments, strong leadership, and community involvement.
In her role with Swift Real Estate Partners, Kelsey is responsible for real estate acquisitions, dispositions, and asset management in Southern California and Washington. Prior to joining Swift, she was an associate at Eastdil Secured, responsible for institutional office investment sales in Orange County and Los Angeles. Her background also includes roles with ECP Commercial and Atlas REO in San Diego. Schultes holds a bachelor’s degree in real estate finance and master’s degree in finance and entrepreneurship, both from San Diego State University.
““With so few professionals named this year, it is even more of an honor to have a young leader from our chapter chosen for this national recognition. Our next generation real estate professionals in Southern California continue to demonstrate their focus on raising the bar for the industry,” said Lance Ryan, NAIOP SoCal 2017 President, and executive vice president and chief operating officer with Watson Land Company.
From 2013 to 2014, Kelsey completed the year-long NAIOP SoCal Young Professionals Group (YPG) program. She then joined Swift Real Estate Partners as it closed its first fund and began building its investment team. Schultes was assigned the Pacific Northwest region, and acquired Swift’s first two Seattle area projects off market in 2015. Since that time, she has purchased, asset managed, repositioned, leased and sold assets in the Pacific Northwest and Southern California for Swift’s first and second funds.
“I am honored to be recognized by an organization that has provided so many opportunities, scholarships, and connections that have helped drive my career over the past ten years. I look forward to my continued involvement in the organization and giving back,” said Stuart Schultes.
