Congratulations to the 2018 Next Generation Awards Winners

Connect Media is pleased to announce the recipients of our second annual Next Generation Awards.

We chose 51 young leaders throughout the U.S. who are already making big contributions, and are likely to be influential in the commercial real estate industry for a long time because of their talent, drive and fresh ideas. We picked these winners from nearly 500 nominations sent in by our readers from all parts of the country and from all sectors of the CRE industry, from architecture to development, to finance and property sales.

Reflecting both the strong response to our request for submissions and the broader reach of Connect Media’s platform in 2018, we selected several more regional winners from California, Chicago, Texas and New York than we did in the inaugural Next Generation Awards. We chose another 11 National winners covering the rest of the country.

We plan to recognize this year’s award winners at upcoming Connect Conferences across the U.S. Keep visiting these pages for further details.

Once again, congratulations to Connect Media’s 2018 Next Generation Awards honorees.
