WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) has appointed Tom McCormick as its new CEO. McCormick, an industrial specialist based out of Irvine, Calif., has been an SIOR member for 33 years and has served as SIOR global past president, SIOR foundation past president, his local chapter’s past president and most recently as SIOR’s operations director on the board of directors.
