Submit your nomination for GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum’s next influencer series before the fast-approaching deadline of April 3rd.


The industrial market continues to maintain arguably the most consistent activity among investors, tenants and developers, across all commercial real estate sectors.

With a large variety of components driving this particular market forward, such as innovations to robotics and automation, advanced logistics and supply chain offerings, and increased e-commerce demand, the industrial sector continuously thrives as a steady, reliable investment opportunity.

With exceptional fundamentals and pricing metrics, the industrial market’s strong demand and rent growth secures its position as a core investment class. Both foreign and domestic investors actively seek opportunities to deploy capital in the sector, as industrial assets continue to trade, grow and occupy at record-setting paces.

From data center hubs and distribution facilities to aviation manufactories, the top performing asset class serves and significantly affects a wide array of diverse industries, including transportation, retail, storage, technology, food service, textiles and more. With prevalent industrial parks and logistics hubs popping-up throughout the country, the field’s prominent activity suggests continued popularity for the sector.

The proven market not only secures the interest of nearly every other industry, but additionally has grabbed the attention of notable commercial real estate players within recent years. The robust activity not only requires expert skillsets from professionals, but it demands a true commitment to the sector for the ability to track market-specific trends and handle the growing interest.

In efforts to recognize the professionals that drive the sector’s spectacular performance, GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum is shining a spotlight on the people and firms who have helped shape the industrial real estate market. From developers, tenants and investors, to brokers, managers and consultants, these are the individuals, teams and firms that have generated significant, recognizable impacts on the business.

This next installment of our Influencers series will profile individual pioneers who have made an impact through their efforts, as well as entire organizations and the teams within that have become critical to the industry.

Be it through their contributions to the industry, the vast successes they’ve racked up in completing deals and projects, or the innovations and best practices they’ve introduced to the business, these are Commercial Real Estate’s INFLUENCERS in INDUSTRIAL Real Estate.

I was selected as an Industrial Influencer last year. Can I apply again this year?

To avoid redundancy, we try to vary the Influencers that we profile from year to year. However, this is limited to the type of nomination that you are submitting.

For instance, if your organization or team was previously selected as an Influencer, you may submit again this year as an individual. Conversely, if you were chosen as an individual Influencer last year, you may be nominated as part of a team or company, this year. In either case, your nomination must include updated information that does not mirror the previous year’s submission.

No. Submission to this, as well as all of our editorial content, is free.

How do I increase my chances of being selected?

Be as descriptive, yet concise as possible. Sounds redundant, but it’s simple. Provide details on why you think your entry should be chosen as an Influencer, but leave out the fluff, like marketing content and self-congratulatory comments. We don’t mind reading long entries, but don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information—we love facts and figures—or additional files such as media coverage.
