2017 Emergent Leader Award Winners

Emergent Leadership Awards

Each year the Young Leaders Group of the ULI Orange County/Inland Empire district council celebrates young leaders with the Emergent Leadership Awards. The awards were established to recognize exemplary motivated, dedicated, and inventive emerging real estate professionals who have demonstrated dedication to bettering themselves and their industry in the previous year. The YLG feel it is important to highlight the most outstanding local emerging leaders whose contributions to their company and ULI make it clear that they lead by example.
