Silverstein Properties CEO Marty Burger is set to hobnob and fundraise for the nonprofit Urban Land Institute’s New York chapter.

Burger was named the new chairman of the land use and development research and education organization, to replace its current leader Robert Lieber on July 1, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Silverstein chief executive is a longtime member of the nonprofit, and one of its trustees. He’s chaired one of its Urban Development and Mixed-Use councils for the past three years.

“I agreed because it’s a labor of love,” Burger told the Journal. “It has been a part of my life ever since I started in the real estate business.”

Burger joined Silverstein in 2010 as co-CEO, serving alongside founder Larry Silverstein. Burger officially took charge of the company in 2014. The Real Deal profiled him in its “At the Desk” feature last June.

Urban Land Institute was founded in 1936 and has more than 38,000 members worldwide. It advocates for sustainability and smart growth in cities worldwide through research, education and strategic consulting.

Lieber, who became chairman in 2013, will continue to serve on the Institute’s advisory board. [WSJ]Ariel Stulberg
