Meet The Influencers: Commercial real estate executives influencing development from coast to coast
Introducing The Top 100 Influencers: Commercial Real Estate.
Produced by The Business Journals, this list spotlights 100 executives who are having an influence on real estate and development in their respective communities. The executives featured here represent both large, nationally recognized firms and smaller, family-owned businesses. Some are long-tenured executives while others have found success relatively early in their careers. And while some might be familiar industry names and others less so, as a group nationally, these individuals are having an impact on the business being done in communities from coast to coast.
These executives were identified in conjunction with editors and staff writers across The Business Journals’ network of more than 40 publications. Each has been featured as part of The Business Journals’ continuing coverage of the newsmakers in those cities. These are executives to know for entrepreneurs and companies that are looking to expand their businesses to new locations or to grow further in the cities in which they’re now operating.
Lacy Beasley, President of Retail Strategies, has been named by the Birmingham Business Journal as the Top 40 under 40. She hosts a monthly Retail Webinar series highlighting a variety of retail real estate topics while connecting listeners to retail insiders.
While working to recruit retail to communities Lacy has written retail focused articles [link] and has spoken at approximately 100 events nationally and in Canada. With a focus on Community Retail challenges the talks cover the latest insider trends while unravelling the complex decision making process of how retailers select sites for growth.
