Real Estate: MILES LEON
PRESIDENT, CHAIRMAN AND CEO, S.L. NUSBAUM REALTY CO., NORFOLK
A University of Georgia and University of Miami graduate, Leon co-founded First Commercial Real Estate Services, which was purchased in the early 1990s by S.L. Nusbaum — a realty company founded in 1906.

S.L. Nusbaum serves the Southeast and mid-Atlantic regions, manages 35,000 multifamily units and has developed more than 7.3 million square feet of commercial real estate.
Leon has served on numerous community boards, including Reinvent Hampton Roads, the Downtown Norfolk Council, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and the United Jewish Federation
