WASHINGTON, DC–The Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE) — the organization that brings us every year a ranking of US and global cities where foreign-based real estate investors intend to invest — will have a new CEO this September after its long-standing head, James A. Fetgatter, retires.

He will be Gunnar Branson, who is currently the CEO of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Managers, where he has served for seven years. According to his LinkedIn profile, Branson has held positions at Transwestern, Heller Financial and GE Real Estate.
