Melanie Leech, Chief Executive, British Property Federation comments:
“Congratulations to everyone shortlisted to win one of our Tomorrow’s Leaders Awards, and thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination. The competition this year was more intense than ever, demonstrating again the wealth of talent moving up the ranks of our industry. Identifying real estate’s outstanding contribution to people’s everyday lives across the UK, and nurturing the talent currently driving this and who will eventually lead this, is key to ensuring the industry can continue to thrive. We hope the awards serve to inspire others to reach their full potential, and to challenge businesses to recognise that diversity and inclusivity is critical to their future health and sustainability.”
