2023 IREM 30 Under 30 Recipient


    Benson Richardson
    Commercial Property Manager
    Woodbury Corporation
    Salt Lake City, Utah

    Being raised in a small Idaho town, which had hundreds of thousands more acres of farmland than people, my immediate exposure to commercial buildings was limited. For this reason, I grew up loving visiting big cities and experiencing large buildings, wondering how they were built and maintained.  

    As I grew older my fascination with real estate continued to grow. I fortunately stumbled across a property management program at the school I was attending, Brigham Young University. I excitedly made a slight pivot in my career plans and enrolled in the program. In 2021 I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Facility and Property Management and minors in business management and urban and city planning and immediately started working full time at Woodbury Corporation as a commercial property manager, where I had been working part time for a few months while I finished school. Woodbury Corporation is an owner operated, full-service real estate company. I manage a mixed portion of their portfolio, including office, medical office, industrial, and retail buildings in the Salt Lake Metropolitan area, totaling 1 million square feet. 

    I am a CPM candidate, expecting to finish earning this title in early 2024. With this certification, as a property manager for one of Utah’s largest real estate owners, and as a contributing member of the IREM Utah Chapter, I am excited to continue to grow my career here in Salt Lake City and play a role in its economic and commercial real estate growth.
