With input from his handpicked professional mentors, Glen set about restructuring the company to grow it into a major force in the commercial real estate development field. He brought on experts in the field of strategic growth, brokerage, and facilities management to increase IDI’s level of expertise in the services provided. Glen’s visionary leadership and loyalty to his employees has created a company that is stable and growing.
