"Diane's technology background was one of the main reasons we brought her on as COO." –Kevin Maggiacomo, SVNIC President & CEO
Boston, Mass (PRWEB) January 08, 2015
Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVNIC), a commercial real estate services franchisor, announces Diane Danielson, Chief Operating Officer, will be a technology panelist at the 4th Annual Real Estate Weekly Women’s Forum in New York, New York on February 25, 2015.
More than 550 women investors, owners, developers, and professionals will come together at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel in New York City to focus on this year’s theme–“Women Helping Women.” Each year, Real Estate Weekly turns the spotlight onto the female real estate leaders making strides in New York City and surrounding areas.
As an avid proponent of commercial real estate technology, Danielson is excited to be selected as part of the panel for 2015, stating, "commercial real estate has been slow to adopt many standard technologies, but this is going to change in the next few years." Danielson adds, "As more and more opportunities in real estate open up to Millennials, they are going to expect a certain level of technology. That’s why it's important for conferences like the Real Estate Weekly Women’s Forum to have technology panels."
Kevin Maggiacomo, SVNIC President & CEO, believes that Danielson is a perfect spokesperson for CRE technology. Maggiacomo adds, "Diane's technology background was one of the main reasons we brought her on as COO. As a franchise operation, it's crucial for us to leverage technology in unique ways so that our franchisees get the benefit of a national firm, but can maintain their local ownership."
