It’s safe to say that COVID appears to be in the rearview mirror as Connect Media held its flagship conference, Connect Los Angeles 2023, to an enthusiastic group of more than 500 attendees at the Hotel Indigo in downtown Los Angeles. With a star lineup of panelists and speakers, the event was topped off with George M. Marcus, Co-Founder and Chairman of Marcus & Millichap, receiving the Connect Media Lifetime Achievement Award.

Marcus, who has been its chairman since 1971, is also chairman of Essex Property Trust (a publicly held multifamily REIT) and was one of the original founders and directors of Plaza Commerce Bank and Greater Bay Bancorp, both publicly held financial institutions. He continues to serve on the board of directors of Greater Bay Bancorp.

Hessam Nadji, president and CEO of Marcus & Millichap, and Daniel Ceniceros, founder and CEO of Connect Media, presented the award to Marcus. Said Ceniceros, “Today we are recognizing Mr. Marcus’s influence on our industry and impact on the lives of so many people. I am pleased that this will become part of his legacy.”
