May 19, 2023 – SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Multifamily Leadership announced that Clay Llewellyn, Chief Operating Officer at Income Property Specialists, has joined the Multifamily Innovation® Council. The Multifamily Innovation® Advisory Council is a community of multifamily investors, developers, operators, and third-party managers dedicated to driving innovation in the industry.
Llewellyn brings over 10 years of multifamily experience in operations to the council. His expertise in organizational development and effectiveness will be valuable assets to the council as it works to identify pain points and explore solutions within the multifamily industry.
“Participating in the Multifamily Innovation® Council meetings has been incredibly valuable. The primary emphasis of our discussions has been problem-solving and finding effective solutions, in contrast to my previous experiences with similar groups that tended to prioritize self-promotion. It is reassuring to discover that the challenges our business faces are shared among other organizations, providing a sense of comfort and support,” said Llewellyn.
Clay Llewellyn has been with Income Property Specialists for over 8 years and prior to that, he was with Laramar Group.

We believe that innovation is key to driving progress in the industry, and we are dedicated to using our proprietary framework to identify pain points and explore solutions.”
Council members enjoy access to weekly meetings, a private community, and an annual in-person summit, as well as the opportunity to share insights and learn from a diverse group of successful multifamily owners and operators. Membership is open to those who own or manage a minimum of 1,500 units multifamily apartments.
