As part of Stro’s commitment to the next generation of real estate executives, Steven Millstein, President and Founder of Stro, hosted New Jersey NAIOP’s Developing Leaders “Evening with a Legend Dinner” program at his home in Ridgewood. At the dinner he shared his experiences and vision of the industry to a sold out group of young real estate professionals. “I was really pleased to be a part of this great program. It’s important the commercial real estate community embraces millennials and the next generation of real estate professionals. Our industry’s leaders are aging. Developing new talent for Stro and the industry is not only a necessity, but an investment in the future.” said Millstein. “At Stro we recognize our industry’s next generation of professionals is a smaller pool than in the past. At the same time the industry has grown, and the need for experienced real professionals has increased with it. We are actively cultivating bright, hardworking young people to start their careers at Stro with the intention of growing them into leadership roles.” he added.
