Certified Retail Property Executive (CRX)

Languages: English

The evolving nature of the industry including game-changers like plateauing of new development, capital flows, globalization of retail, socio-economic shifts and more have fundamentally changed what it means to be a successful industry executive. ICSC introduced the Certified Retail Property Executive (CRX) credential in response to this critical paradigm shift. The CRX defines the responsibility and capabilities of a professional engaging in retail property executive leadership positions including expertise in asset management, development, redevelopment, finance, accounting, leasing, revenue generation, retailing, marketing, communications, legal, compliance, property and facilities. In addition, it lays the groundwork to meet the growing business demands related to the retail real estate industry and emphasizes the importance of leadership skills and best practices.

Eligible CRX candidates have a minimum of 8 years of qualifying industry experience obtained within the last 15 years, are dedicated to advancing professionalism and support the highest industry standards worldwide.  We encourage qualified managers, directors, vice presidents, officers and allied professionals to apply.
