In an event held in early February at the Soumaya Museum, in Mexico City, Beatriz Gamboa Lago was inaugurated as the national president of the Asociación Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios (AMPI).
Gamboa Lago is a member of Mujeres Líderes por la Vivienda (MULIV), or Women Leaders for Housing, and last year served as national executive vice president of AMPI, the most important real estate organization in the country.
In her inaugural address, Gamboa Lago pledged to promote unity among industry members and increase the number of certifications for real estate professionals. She also said that she will promote a more robust technology platform, where real estate information can be exchanged and benefit the consumer with transparency and education.
Attendees at the event included David Penchyna Grub, general director of the Instituto del Fondo Nacional de la Vivienda para los Trabajadores (INFONAVIT), or National Housing Fund for Workers; Salomón Chertorivski, secretary of economic development of Mexico City; and Jorge Wolpert, general director of the Comisión Nacional de Vivienda (CONAVI), or National Housing Commission.
“American investors and those from Europe appreciate traditional Mexican cities and our country’s beach destinations. And with the benefit of exchange rate parity, they are further motivated to invest in Mexico. The real estate industry affects more than 40 areas of productivity and provides families as well as businesses the facilities necessary to develop all kinds of activities.” —Beatriz Gamboa Lago, national president of AMPI.
