Curating an Industry

There may be, literally, tons of concrete, steel and dirt in the commercial real estate industry, but describing the foundations of a great development is incomplete without the people and relationships that precede such things. In fact, the two are so interdependent that AZ Big Media decided to expand the typical “People to Know” publication this year to not only include projects, but also significant transactions that led the pack over the last 18 months. In this magazine, you will find the leaders in their fields, as well as up-andcomers next to the biggest completed and
incoming projects.

We have also compiled a snazzy centerfold featuring historic buildings in Arizona that are still standing. I hope you enjoy learning more about the people, deals and projects within this issue as much as I did, and please don’t forget to nominate deserving industry professionals and outstanding projects next year. Lastly, thank you to Vizzda for being research partners on this publication.
