I am honored to be among this year’s cohort of HIVE awardees. I am awed and moved by the company in which I am included. From the letter informing me of my inclusion:

“HIVE is the curtain call to the cast of innovators who will shape housing today and tomorrow. You are being recognized because your contribution has disrupted and transformed the way we think. HIVE is a community to give visibility to these great acts of innovation and to encourage collaboration that can catapult these ideas into mainstream practices while constantly building a platform for new catalysts.”

WHEW!  Thinking about innovation is too often limited to technology, widgets and fast-paced business success, not so much about housing. Hanley Wood, the premier company serving the information, media and marketing needs of the residential, commercial design, and construction industry changes that by introducing HIVE 2016.

“With the HIVE 100 Innovators Award , we salute a unique group of individuals and organizations who represent bold ideas, products and solutions that will help renew the places we all call home and reinvent the cities we live in,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood.

“Our trusted editors and advisors used a rigorous process to vet what we believe represents the most compelling figures in innovation and technology in housing today”, said John McManus, Hanley Wood editorial director-residential group.

HIVE 100 spotlights market catalysts and honors individuals who are the vanguard of landscape-changing contributions. The awards are part of Hanley Wood’s groundbreaking HIVE community launch and the imminent, sold-out HIVE 2016 conference. The HIVE community transforms housing with conversation to inspire creativity, higher performance and better solutions in five distinct categories: Design, Demographics, Finance, Business Management and Products.

Thanks for sharing my excitement about this award and visionary housing. I will write again after the HIVE conference next week.
