Next Generation Honoree: Trammell Crow’s Tipre Wields Diverse Skill Sets
As a panelist on the “Now Generation” panel at Connect Media’s 2016 Connect Orange County conference, Trammell Crow Company’s Chris Tipre advised audience members to diversify their skill sets and be able to wear many hats. Tipre’s multi-faceted job description as an SVP with TCC’s Southern California business unit shows that he practices what he preaches.
On the firm’s new acquisitions and development projects, he is responsible for land and deal sourcing, financial analysis, due diligence, entitlements, debt and equity capital relationships, development coordination and project leasing. His work day entails everything from underwriting for all office and industrial acquisitions and developments to collaborating with development managers on strategic issues throughout the design, permitting and construction processes.
Those are just some of the reasons we chose Tipre to be one of the ten California 2018 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
At that 2016 Connect Orange Count event, Tipre also shared that commercial real estate is an industry where reaching out and paying it forward is a widely-accepted mentality because everyone has been in your position once and sought to gain the same insight from a mentor. Accordingly, he’s a 2018 board member of NAIOP SoCal.
