Anthony’s unique background will enable him to be a utility player within the PlaceMKR team and be involved in projects from inception through to disposal.

When asked why he’s so passionate about placemaking, Anthony said:

Taking something that is underutilized and turning it into a space that people can enjoy while they live and work is a great sense of accomplishment, the fact that we can make a community better and at the same time have the excitement that comes from doing the deals that make a project successful is a perfect combination for me.

4 Questions with Anthony

How do you kick-off a productive morning?

I am always more productive if I go for a run or some other exercise in the morning, currently though spending time with kids takes up most mornings and that still sets me up for a productive morning.

What was your first job?

Stacking shelves at a local supermarket when I was 14.

What is your most important lesson learned?

To always challenge what experts tell you, people get stuck in a mentality of “this is how we have always done it” and this can limit opportunity and cost money.

What is your favorite place anywhere and why?

Best place I have been to date was the Maldives for my honeymoon, white sand beaches, blue water, completely cut off from the world… what’s not to like!
