The Final Word

We gave featured business leaders of the issue the final word in answering “If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be?”

Yuki Nomura, President and CEO, Taiyo Kogyo Corporation 

“I want to find a solution to brining membrane structures to outer space. In the future, I believe that membranes have the capability of assisting construction in space and on the moon and beyond, as well as solving the problem of flying debris.”

Ausra Vankeviciute, CEO, Staticus

“I would ask our industry to be more transparent and also more diverse going forward. There is a long way to go in terms of using new technologies, and we all need to learn that without being open-minded and transparent we will not be able to bring about meaningful change. Being more open will also help the industry to become more creative.”

David Ancell, Chief Brand Officer, Vita Group

“I think there’s a perception that the property industry is still very traditional. Being a creative myself, I’d want to try and change the perception of our sector to attract far more people from the creative industries. Ultimately, we’re reinventing how people live and redefining it, and with that the industry needs a lot of creative thinkers. I think if you asked a lot of people in the creative industries to work for a property company, they’d probably say it’s not for them.”

Holland Barry, Cyxtera Technologies

“Accelerated efforts to lessen the impact on the planet with an increased focus around energy consumption, energy usage and green initiatives, and ensuring other providers are doing their part as well with a more unified approach. We have a lot of things underway, and we wish we could do them faster.”
