Scott D. Finney, SIOR, Senior Vice President of Industrial Properties with Norris & Stevens, Inc. (N&S) was recently elected as the President of the Portland, Oregon chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR). Serving a two-year term, Mr. Finney will oversee and represent the interests of the chapter and its members to the Board of Directors. The induction ceremony took place on December 7th, 2023 during the chapter’s Winter Holiday Dinner at the recently-opened 5-star Ritz-Carlton Hotel in downtown Portland. In the spirit of the season, Santa (played by the newly appointed president) made an appearance.
Scott Finney has more than 20 years of commercial real estate experience—specializing in the leasing and sales of incubator and medium-sized Industrial buildings in the Portland metro market. As Senior Vice President, as well as a shareholder of N&S, Scott also contributes in decisions concerning the direction of the company, as well as acting as a mentor for new brokers and his peers. He has been recognized many times by N&S and his fellow brokers, both as a top producer, and as a broker with a positive attitude in the Portland Metro Area.
Scott has been an SIOR member since 2013, and has served SIOR in various leadership positions, most recently as Vice President of the Portland Oregon SIOR chapter.
“Being chosen as the Portland, Oregon Chapter President is a great honor and a tremendous opportunity. I’m thrilled be taking on this position, and hope to build on the amazing success of our outgoing President, Curt Aurther. My primary objective is to serve as an example of leadership and training for new SIOR members. Sharing the information that many of us more seasoned brokers possess, in my opinion, is crucial in achieving the goal of closing deals while upholding the highest standards of morality and integrity in this line of work. This, in my opinion, is what SIOR is all about, and sets us apart from regular brokers. It is known as honesty, esprit de corps, and loyalty. I’m excited to pursue both new and ongoing organizational objectives with the expertise and integrity an SIOR is known for.”
