VTS Welcomes CRE Executive Max Saia as Director of Investor Research
We’re pleased to welcome Max Saia to the VTS family as he joins our team in the newly created role of Director of Investor Research. Max will be responsible for building out our investor research capabilities, focusing on using our proprietary data and industry-leading data science and analytics to help our customers improve decision making across the entire asset lifecycle. Hot on the heels of the successful launch of VTS Data, the industry’s only forward-looking market data product, we’re thrilled to continue to add world-class talent to our team and build out this offering.
Prior to joining VTS, Max served as the Director of Research, Strategic Planning, and Analysis for The Irvine Company. In this role, he was responsible for acting as an internal consultant on analytically-focused strategy as well as crafting quarterly economic updates, fundamental forecasts, and dashboards that were utilized to guide key investment and development decisions. Prior to The Irvine Company, Max also held notable positions as the Vice President of Research and Strategy for American Realty Advisor and an Economist for CBRE.
What VTS CEO & Co-Founder Nick Romito had to say:
“Max has a deep understanding of the existing commercial real estate information landscape and subsequent pitfalls, and he shares our team's vision around its necessary evolution. His unparalleled experience working closely with and supporting some of today’s most influential landlords and brokerage teams globally will benefit our team immensely as we continue to develop our next generation of data products.”
What VTS Director of Investor Research Max Saia said:
"As a commercial real estate researcher, guiding strategic decision making by traditional industry data sources has been a challenge, to say the least. Million and billion-dollar decisions should not be based on incomplete and outdated information. I’m honored and thrilled to be joining VTS’ top-notch team, they not only have a clear vision of what the future of commercial real estate data looks like, but they’re also actively turning their vision into an innovative reality."
