Meet the Swing Space Committee: Co-Chair Ben Becker

February 18, 2016

When I saw kindergartners speaking Hebrew during our initial school visit, my heart skipped a beat. I knew that JPDS-NC was the place for our family. We are grateful for the quality education and strong community that JPDS-NC provides and we are planning for our youngest to start next year. I am volunteering on the Middle School because I see it as an opportunity to use my professional skills to help the school through an important transitional period. I am real estate broker with KLNBretail, the area’s leading retail brokerage firm, and I specialize in retail tenant and landlord representation throughout the region. As a commercial real estate broker, I work with many retailers and restaurants who know a lot more about running their business than they do about negotiating real estate transactions. I am happy to be able to use my experience in support of the school and community during this period of growth.
