Adeayomi Adeyemi, a community manager with Hazelview Properties in Winnipeg, has been named one of 10 leaders for 2021 through the Institute of Real Estate Management’s (IREM) diversity and inclusion succession initiative (DISI). This recognizes IREM members from underrepresented groups within the industry who bring an enriching scope of backgrounds and experiences to their professional roles and peer interactions.
“Strength comes from our differences,” affirms Chip Watts, 2021 IREM president. “These exceptional members have demonstrated leadership within IREM at their chapters and within their organizations.”
Adeyemi began his career in Lagos, Nigeria, and worked in several commercial real estate disciplines including appraisal, property and facility management and asset management, rising to managerial roles with Standard Chartered Bank and Broll Property Group. Since his 2019 arrival in Winnipeg, he has transitioned to multifamily residential management.
He is an Associate of the Nigerian Institute of Estate Surveyors (ANIVS), a Registered Surveyor and Valuer (RSV) and is currently pursuing the Certified Property Manager (CPM) designation through the Real Estate Institute of Canada (REIC). He now joins nine DISI leader contemporaries based in the United States.
“I am passionate about excellent service delivery and I enjoy solving problems,” Adeyemi says. “I continue to associate myself with individuals and leading organizations, who can help me grow personally and professionally.”
He should find opportunities to do so as an IREM DISI leader. The initiative provides mentorship, training and education, and complimentary registration for the 2021 IREM Global Summit, set for Las Vegas, Nevada, October 11 to 14.
