SANTA BARBARA, CA, February 10, 2006 — Realcomm announces its “Top 35 People to Watch in 2006” list, featuring Anant Yardi, founder and President of Yardi Systems, Inc. The goal of the list is to identify those people who are at the intersection of commercial real estate, corporate real estate and technology, and who have demonstrated a willingness to go the extra length.
Criteria for the award includes 21st Century Vision; Persistence; Patience; Willingness To Fail; Enhanced Tenant Experience; Automated Building; Paperless Transaction; and Efficient, Flexible, Sustainable, and Reusable Design. Because Realcomm is about technology, business solutions and intelligent buildings–as these topics relate to innovation and the establishment of new best practices–the list of 35 does not necessarily include those who have leased the most space, sold the most expensive project or built the biggest building.
Others named on the list include Arthur Hall, Sr., Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield, and Neville Teagarden, Sr. Vice President/Chief Information Officer of ProLogis.
Realcomm’s mission is to provide a single place where industry leaders can come together to discuss, analyze and debate the latest innovations that are impacting the commercial real estate industry. Today, the business solutions and technologies we need to improve how we transact, manage and use commercial real estate are here. It is now about adoption. It is critical for every business manager and real estate professional to equip themselves with the skills and tools they need to conduct business in the 21st century.
