RISMedia's REAL ESTATE August 2019 85 Ginny Shipe CEO Real Estate Business Institute G inny Shipe has served as chief ex- ecutive officer of the Real Estate Business Institute (REBI), an affili- ate of the National Association of REALTORS®, since 1999. "I am proud and humbled to lead REBI's accelerated growth after surmounting the market conditions in 2008," says Shipe. REBI's membership grew by almost 27 percent last year, to 21,444 members and counting. The company has continued to strengthen its global presence by introducing new, high-value courses and continually enhancing the member experience. Toward the end of 2018, REBI had delivered 1,162 courses to 5,882 students—the highest in the organization's history. "Our team is prepared to go beyond today's ac - complishments, and is committed to empowering industry professionals with 'the essential creden- tials,'" says Shipe. Shipe is of the opinion that an effective leader must never believe that he or she knows everything, but rather must always be learning new information and considering new ideas. According to Shipe, "As President John F. Kennedy was to say in a speech scheduled for the day of his tragic assassination, 'leadership and learning are indispensable to each other,'" adding that "without question, a willingness and ability to learn is the foun - dation of all success in our knowledge-based society, and the need to make learning a top priority will be- come that much more critical in the next several years as an increasingly global marketplace, combined with the relentless pace of advancement in science and technology, creates new levels of challenge and com- plexity for individuals and organizations alike."
