What the Industry Reads First
Volume 25 / No. 1
NAMIC: New Chief, New Path Forward
A 30-year industry vet, Eglon Simons is set to officially become NAMIC
vacated by Nicol Turner-Lee last July. It might seem like it took almost a year for the organization to announce
a new chief, but the search only started in early 2014, said Alicin Williamson,
The
Raben Group and interim chief. The group formed a deep bench committee chaired by NAMIC board chair Michael

he will contact members, the board, every chapter of the organization, advisory councils and more to identity
now the members and companies supporting diversity in the industry, he said.
