Commercial Real Estate Supplier Diversity Alliance Adds Broker to Newly Created Business Development Manager Position
CRESDA, the Commercial Real Estate Supplier Diversity Alliance, recently announced a newly created role of Business Development Manager, with Ebony Parham selected for the role.
Parham joins CRESDA from Newmark Associates, the largest and oldest women-owned and operated commercial real estate brokerage firm in New Jersey, where she will continue as an associate broker.
Parham’s background includes over 15 years of real estate experience and the motto that “to be of true service you must add something that cannot be bought or measured with money, and it’s sincerity and integrity,” consistent with his work to create a fairer industry.
“I know what it’s like to be overlooked for opportunities due to a lack of exposure, and I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that works with companies that are committed to having partners of the CRE supply chain as diverse as their workforce and the communities they serve,” said Parham.
CRESDA provides tailored solutions to the diversity initiatives of Fortune 500 real estate providers and other large corporations, in turn providing opportunities to the CRESDA member base of various CRE brokerage firms (minority, women, veterans and LGBTQ) at national scale. As Director of Business Development, Parham has taken the initiative to develop meaningful relationships with companies’ supplier diversity channels to deliver real estate solutions that satisfy their initiatives.
“We are very happy to have Ebony on the CRESDA team,” said Nancy Glick, co-founder and CEO of CRESDA. “In addition to its reputation and skills as a CRE broker, Ebony’s passion for social equity further fuels our mission.”
