Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas: 16 years ago, I left Turkmenistan for Las Vegas in search of new opportunities. Las Vegas quickly became my second home, filled with unforgettable experiences, personal growth, and joy. I feel proud of all that I’ve accomplished and am excited for what the future holds.

What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally?

I have greatly expanded my knowledge of the latest developments in the CRE Southern Nevada through participating in  workshops and webinars, as well as taking in the insights of captivating guest speakers and panelists at the informative monthly networking breakfasts.

What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at NAIOP event?

I attended a Catholic Workers  event where the goal was to feed the homeless and provide them with care packages. The grateful expressions on the recipients’ faces and the sense of community at the event left me grateful for my own warm home and family, and inspired to continue helping those in need. And it reminded me of the importance of coming together as a community to support those who are less fortunate.

Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with? 

There have been so many people who have influenced me along the way, both those who I’ve become close friends with and those who may not even know the impact they’ve had on me. But I really want to take a moment to acknowledge the Chapter Leadership. There are a lot of organizations in the Valley, but I have to say that NAIOP is my absolute favorite. It’s run so well, and the connections you make and the education and growth opportunities you get as a member are top-notch. I’m a new member and I already feel like it’s going to pay off in the profits I make.

What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada community?

My legacy is that of a trusted technology advisor who transformed local businesses with innovative IT solutions. I was the go-to expert for construction firms, engineering firms, and architects, guiding them through the technology landscape. My commitment to streamlining systems, enhancing security, and improving efficiency left a lasting impact and will be remembered as a shining example of expertise and dedication.
