For the last few years, Kansas City has seen a red hot industrial market. Recently, local and regional experts took part in a thought-provoking discussion on the state of the market at the 2016 Industrial Summit, hosted by MetroWireMedia. The event was supported by generous sponsors: Grandbridge Real Estate Capital, ARCO Construction, Stewart Title, GBA Architects + Engineers, Citizens Bank & Trust, Centerpoint Properties, Candid Marketing + Communications, Newmark Grubb Zimmer, Cushman & Wakefield, Design Mechanical and KC SmartPort. Here’s a look back at a snapshot of that conversation.
"Being a woman-owned business is in this male-dominated industry is interesting. A lot of times we are the only women in the room. We do good work and we’ve been awarded for it but I do think we have something to prove. Women who own businesses don’t make it as long as we have made it, so we’ve defied a lot of odds."
