Brian Ward Lilley
Brian Ward Lilley was recently appointed to fill the position of director general at Great Britain's Institute of Personnel Management (IPM). Lilley believes individuality should not be stifled. He also feels the personnel function should be decentralized in order to lower the quantity of management levels and improve business management. Lilley's primary responsibilities as director general include: serving and providing members of the IPM with professional support; moving the Institute to the forefront of personnel research; and improving external relations so the IPM can implement concepts learned in government research.

Umbrella partnership REITs, or UPREITs, were acknowledged by the IRS as tax-favored in the section 701 regulations. Down-REITs, which provide tax deferral through contribution of appreciated property into an operating partnership in exchange for limited partnership interests, are fundamentally the economic equivalent of UPREITs.
