Speaker: Brandon Laurie, Chief Executive Officer- CTH Recruiting

Embarking on a multifaceted journey that began with leasing student and luxury housing in 1999, my career in the multifamily industry has been nothing short of extraordinary. From swiftly rising to assistant manager in a challenging property to assuming the role of manager for 288 tax credit units at the age of 20, I've navigated diverse challenges with resilience and determination. By the age of 22, I was privileged to be promoted to a Junior Regional role, overseeing 488 units.

 My trajectory further led me to manage full renovations and orchestrate the lease-up of 1187 units in Los Angeles—a testament to my ability to excel in high-stakes environments. Transitioning into the realm of marketing, I lent my expertise to renowned platforms such as For Rent, Apartments.com, and Zumper, broadening my industry impact.

 In 2010, I ventured into staffing, specializing in temp and temp-to-hire placements, leveraging my multifamily insights to build high-performing teams. This journey reached a new milestone on February 1, 2023, with the establishment of CTH Recruiting, a Multifamily-focused recruiting agency.

Gratitude permeates every step of this incredible journey, and as I reflect on the past 25 years, I am fueled with excitement for this next chapter. I look forward to continued growth, innovation, and making a lasting impact on the multifamily landscape in the next 25 years and beyond.
