December 1, 2016 - At this year's 2016 CenterBuild conference, Green Building Initiative’s (GBI) Senior Director of Engagement Shaina Weinstein was honored by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) as one of the top emerging leaders in the architecture and design industry. Weinstein was recognized with the organization’s “20 Under Forty” award.

ICSC’s annual international conference, CenterBuild, is a dynamic event dedicated to the issues of planning, development, design and construction of shopping centers and retail stores.

The “20 Under Forty” award is given based on an individual’s energy, leadership, innovation and creativity. The award is given annually to twenty individuals who are nominated by their peers and it is given out during the ICSC’s annual CenterBuild conference. Weinstein has been with the GBI since 2014 and has demonstrated all the qualities that this award is meant to distinguish.

“I’m delighted to be recognized with so many other influencers from the retail sector,” said Weinstein of her award. “ICSC is a great organization and I’m proud to represent GBI within its retail community.”

“GBI sends Shaina sincere congratulations on this prestigious award,” said GBI’s Executive Director Vicki Worden.
