Thomas McDaniel has been named as one of the recipients of the 2007 Developing Leaders Award, presented by the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP).

Developing Leader Thomas McDaniel is the director of office leasing and investment with Boyle Investment Company in Nashville, Tenn. In this role, he is responsible for leasing and management of more than 800,000 square feet of commercial space in addition to overseeing the company’s acquisitions, dispositions and development projects. McDaniel has established himself as a leader in NAIOP’s Nashville Chapter by serving on the chapter’s Board of Directors since 2005 and has been instrumental in organizing education programs and initiating an intern program with Vanderbilt University as Program Chairman. In addition, he is active in his community through his volunteer efforts with the United Way and the Nashville and Cool Springs Chambers of Commerce.

This year, the Developing Leaders Award was bestowed upon 15 up-and-coming professionals who have distinguished themselves in their profession and show great promise as future leaders of the commercial real estate industry.

In an effort to engage and encourage up-and-coming young commercial real estate professionals, NAIOP’s Diversity Task Force established the award in 2006. The honor was designed to engage tomorrow’s leaders and connect them with NAIOP’s increasing education and benefits available to new and developing professionals.

NAIOP President Thomas J. Bisacquino spoke of the importance of the Developing Leaders Award, stating: “The Developing Leaders program advances NAIOP’s agenda and enhances our diversity by acknowledging and encouraging the involvement of these accomplished young professionals who will lead our organization and the commercial real estate industry into the future.”

Recipients of NAIOP’s Developing Leaders Award will be celebrated at development ’07: the annual meeting for commercial real estate where they will benefit from unique networking opportunities and publicity surrounding the award. Recipients will enjoy free registration to the conference, which takes place October 16-19 in Atlanta, and will receive a stipend toward their travel expenses.
