San Diego, CA resident Elliot Feuerstein has been in the real estate and retail industry since the 70s, developing and managing several shopping centers. Currently an officer of Mira Mesa Shopping Center, Elliot Feuerstein is a member of various organizations in the industry, including the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).
ICSC seeks to promote the real estate and retail industry through value propositions, fostering the best practices and standards, a professional growth platform, and community growth through the ICSC Foundation.
As the charity arm of ICSC, the foundation undertakes various nonprofit initiatives for community advancement, such as the Talent Incubator Project. The foundation, realizing that new talent worked differently from the retail industry veterans, with changing technology such as mobile applications, working models such as flexible hours and benefits, created the project to support incoming staff members and create harmony with the existing teams.
The program provides innovative best practices in encouraging, introducing, and onboarding undergraduate students in the real estate and retail business. This provides accommodating and streamlined entry opportunities for the students while furnishing the industry with new and young talent. Also, the project allows ICSC members to access diverse talent from the community.
