Members in Action: Annastasia Kaessner

May 28, 2021
Annastasia Kaessner, a CREW Utah Board member and liaison to the Events Committee, is moving up!  Annastasia joined INDUSTRY as Director of Leasing in October 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, to oversee leasing at the Salt Lake City development in the southeast quadrant of I-15 and 600 South.  
She excelled in her role, so was promoted to Director of Leasing over all of INDUSTRY’s properties throughout the United States, including Denver, Detroit, and Bozeman.  Way to go, Annastasia!  She is also a key player in acquisitions and with INDUSTRY’s third-party companies and its debt, equity and development teams. 
Where does Annastasia see herself in five years?  “I hope to continue to expand and grow my team across markets, helping with our market expansion and growth!  I hope to understand debt and equity at a greater level and step more and more into the managerial role.”   No doubt she’ll succeed.
She recently hosted the April 2021 CREW event at INDUSTRY, “Designing the Future: A Fireside Chat with Ellen Winkler, Co-founder and Co-Owner of INDUSTRY”.  If you haven’t been to INDUSTRY, contact Annastasia for a tour.  It’s a unique and wonderful development—you should see it.  To learn more, visit
