Outstanding Panelists Stars of BIA Breakfast
February 21, 2017- Building Industry Association of San Diego County

Thank you to our outstanding building industry panelists who shared their insight and experiences with over 300 of BIA's members at the Del Mar Hilton last Thursday. The panel consisted of Guy Asaro with Meridian Development, Ian Gill with Silvergate Development, Chris Hall with Hallmark Communities, and Russ Murfey with Murfey Construction and was moderated by Mike Neal of H.G. Fenton. These dynamic panelists told personal stories and shared their experiences navigating the regulations within the industry - a serious topic that was delivered with a sense of humor.

From their varying perspectives, they spoke to us about regulation and the changes that are experienced, the impact that technological changes have had on the industry over the years, real estate cycles they have gone through, and career perspective. This inspiring and thought provoking conversation was a great way to start off 2017!
