Tom McCormick Takes CEO Reins at SIOR

The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) named Tom McCormick CEO. McCormick is the first SIOR designee to hold an executive position within the organization.

McCormick says, “I became involved with SIOR early in my career because I saw it as an opportunity to become an elite member of the commercial real estate industry. In the years following, I have seen SIOR grow and advance to become the premier organization for industrial and office professionals — and I believe that we are just getting started.”

McCormick, an industrial specialist based in Irvine, CA, has had a long-spanning commercial real estate career, serving most recently as SVP, National Accounts for Rockefeller Group International. His responsibilities included the development of new opportunities for industrial and office real estate business.

McCormick began his real estate career in 1981 with Coldwell Banker Commercial, before joining Canadian-based Colliers Macaulay Nicolls, where he served for three years as president before joining Panattoni as its COO.
