Jannine B. Hayes, Commercial Leasing Representative for Knott Realty Group, has been named Co-Chair of the NAIOP Maryland Programs Committee. She will function in this capacity in partnership with Nicole Wilhelm Smith, Business Development Manager for ECS Mid-Atlantic’s Baltimore office. More than 380 professionals are involved in NAIOP Maryland, comprised of companies and individuals working in development, investment, construction, brokerage, asset management, finance, architecture, engineering and legal services.

The Programs Committee, which features eight members that support the efforts of the Co-Chairs, executes project tours, educational seminars or networking events that are held nearly every month throughout the year, including several members-only events. This includes choosing appropriate venues, interacting with catering groups and assisting in the marketing of the activities.

“Nicole Wilhelm has served as a tremendous mentor over the past several years during my time as a committee member, and I welcome the opportunity to inject new ideas to continue the success of both the committee and the chapter,” said Jannine Hayes. “Our committee is extremely high-profile and we are counted on to continue to provide value to our membership, as well as showcase our association to attract new member candidates.”

Hayes has been a member of NAIOP Maryland since 2015.
