January 3, 2023

ICSC has named the Next Generation Leadership Network Class of 2022-2024. These under-40 pros exemplify the leadership, creativity and vision needed to advance their organizations and the Marketplaces Industry through a period of rapid change and transformation. They were nominated by a diverse group, including ICSC trustees and members at-large, in recognition of contributions and potential to lead the industry in the future.

ICSC launched Next Generation Leadership Network in 2020 as part of a series of initiatives to recruit, engage and diversify ICSC members.
