Meet Cédric Murillo-Buscarini MRICS: member of the board

After the elections in September 2017, we introduce you to the new board, and their roles and responsibilities. Our eighth and last interview is with Cédric Murillo-Buscarini MRICS, who is the board member with special responsibility for PR and events in the western part of Switzerland.

What is your role on the Swiss board?

My role is press/public relations for the western part of Switzerland. My role supports RICS in Switzerland by bringing added value to the members through brand recognition of RICS but also by influencing third parties. I also organise learning events for members and non-members.

What do you want to achieve in your time on the board?

My goal is bringing confidence in the profession by spreading the RICS top five values (act with integrity, always provide a high standard of service, promote trust in the profession, treat others with respect and take responsibility), but also developing RICS networks and educational programmes.

What is your professional role and career path?

I am the founder and CEO of ReAIM, Real Estate Asset & Investment Management, a real estate strategy consultancy company. We provide complex corporate real estate marketing strategies. Our clients are institutional and private landlords, but also SMEs and multinational companies, or property management companies. Furthermore, I am a principal expert for federal real estate exams and diplomas, invited lecturer at INSEEC business school and SVIT real estate school.

What first interested you in RICS?

I was attracted to RICS by the high level of professional ethics and best practice. I am pleased to be part of this – sharing with others in this large and high-quality international network what is best practice, a high level of understanding of ethics, and rules of conduct. 

What first got you interested in a career in real estate?

While I was doing my master in business and administration, I had the opportunity to first work in banking and then in a real estate company in Paris. I always liked the combination of the two worlds of financing and real estate, which are intimately linked.
