AZRE Magazine September/October 2012
More face time for people in the industry
Spectacular structures and beautiful buildings dominate the images that grace the pages of AZRE magazine. However, we can never forget that the real superstars are the people behind all those projects.
That’s why you will see more (familiar) faces in this issue, with a twist on two of our regular features.
- I am finding that many of you commercial real estate professionals do some pretty cool things when you’re off the clock. With that in mind, we will now feature two people in After Hours. Check out page 28.
- With business picking up, firms are promoting from within and hiring more people. Those announcements, which filled the Newsmakers page, are now being posted on azbigmedia.com. In its place is a new feature, Executive Q&A. Each issue will offer a glimpse of four top decision makers in the various industry sectors. On page 26.
Starting with this issue and beginning on page 30, AZRE magazine unveils its inaugural Big Deals awards. We recognize the top brokers and brokerage-related firms in 20 categories. Helping make the selections were our staff, votes cast on our website, managing directors from the top brokerage firms and a handful of Arizona’s commercial developers.
Our three supplements also include member profiles and a Q&A with the respective “head honchos.”
You will find a lot of smiling faces in this issue — present company included.
