Benjamin McGrew, CPM, CCIM, is the 2018 President of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM). McGrew is President and Majority Shareholder of FiduciaryWest based in Reno, Nevada.

Starting out as a maintenance man, McGrew’s property management career began in 1980 when he became involved in property management and commercial real estate, managing all types of commercial investment properties. He earned his CPM designation in 1987, and began to actively participate in his local chapter. After serving as the local Chapter President and earning the "CPM of the Year" from his chapter, he advanced to national participation, including Governing Council, Regional Vice President for California and Hawaii, and then on to the IREM Executive Committee. McGrew’s goal is to be able to give back to IREM and its members even a small percentage of what he feels IREM has given to him and his career.

He is also a member of the Sacramento Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, and a past president of the California Receivers’ Forum – Sacramento Chapter. He also holds the CCIM designation from the CCIM Institute.

Since 1983, McGrew has served as both a Receiver for the Superior Court (taking over the management of properties primarily in default under the court’s direction) and a Federal Bankruptcy Trustee (a court-appointed official who administers a debtor’s bankruptcy estate) in 21 states/jurisdictions on more than 4,000 occasions.

If all of that weren’t enough to keep him busy, McGrew is also licensed aircraft and helicopter pilot, and tri-athlete who annually avoids sharks in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon in San Francisco Bay.

McGrew is a member of IREM Sacramento Valley Chapter 22.
