Melissa Pesci, Vice President and Principal, HGA

“… the Young Leaders program made it really approachable and exciting to get to interact with people who are like [me]! … It was amazing opportunity to learn new skills and make new relationships.”

Mike Brucato, Senior Director | Northeast | Advisory & Transaction Services | Occupier, CBRE

“It all goes back to 'you get out of it what you put in'. … I have personally found the ROI for my time spent is greater than any other organization I have been a part of. … Aside from the friends and professional relationships I have built, I have been able to stay on top of all the latest real estate trends which is extremely valuable for both my clients and my firm.”

Martine Verhoeven, Business Development Manager, Building, Royal HaskoningDHV

“To me, it’s the connection with other Young Leaders, and with experts in corporate real estate on a global level. At all the events you get new information and insights on the various regions and what’s going on.”

Abhinav (Abe) Somani, Global CEO, LEVERTON Corporation

"The network is the most important thing – you meet the smartest and the best... I have met some really inspiring entrepreneurs and leaders who are innovating in their respective practices. I think the best part is – it’s very real – CoreNet Global is not some esoteric think tank – it is a real community ..."

Lorena Compean Casimiro, Corporate Real Estate Operational Management, Asia Pacific, HSBC

"CoreNet Global has given me the opportunity to meet great, smart people, and to learn about many more aspects of the profession ... From a Young Leaders perspective, it has taught me about different career paths that I was not aware of and gave me the chance to learn about how the [profession] is evolving and how technology is changing the ways of working."
