LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) announced today that it has hired seasoned real estate association executive Nelson Janes as its new chief executive officer. Janes, who previously ran the Sacramento Association of REALTORS®, expects to start work at GLVAR on May 7. He was hired after GLVAR leaders conducted a national search to replace Irene Vogel, who is retiring after guiding the association for nearly 30 years. Devin Reiss, chairman of GLVAR’s CEO Search Committee, said Janes “brings extensive experience building successful associations and REALTOR® programs, considerable experience as a legislative advocate, expertise in refining and implementing effective strategic plans, and a fresh perspective and creative ideas regarding how GLVAR can improve its service to members and customers.” Reiss, a longtime local REALTOR® and former President of GLVAR, also praised Vogel, who will work with Janes for the next few months to ease his transition into his new job.
