What inspiring word of advice would you give to a young executive graduating from college today? The best advice I can give to someone graduating is sur- round yourself with great peo- ple. Go outside of your circle and build new relationships. Associate with people who have similar goals and can make you grow as an individual. It’s an important step to a successful career in any industry or as an entrepreneur. MAREJ

I strive to form strong relationships with some of the region’s most prominent owners and investors, while absorbing market knowledge and finding creative solutions
