A home designer from St. John is among Professional Builder magazine’s national list of 40 Under 40 rising stars for 2019 in the home building industry.
Jacklyn Graniczny, partner and design director of Sublime Homes, is among the honorees profiled in the magazine’s March 2019 edition.
This year's class of 11 women and 29 men were selected from more than 150 nominations submitted from around the country. Their job titles range from entrepreneurs who started their own companies to designers, architects, accountants, directors of marketing, sales representatives, and operations managers.
“Reading through the nomination forms for our 40 Under 40 program is one of the most gratifying things we do each year,” said Editorial Director Denise Dersin. “The nominees' accomplishments, whether personal or work-related, are both substantive and inspiring; these young men and women have a bright future ahead of them, as will the home building industry because of them.”
Several honorees made their mark by expanding into new markets, exceeding sales goals, or streamlining a process to create efficiencies. Others leveraged digital marketing to successfully target buyers and mastered lead generation strategies, reflecting how technology is bringing innovation to the industry's back office operations.
The honorees also are very active in giving back to both their local communities and abroad. A sample of that outreach includes building homes for military veterans; fundraising to provide scholarships and building trades training and leading a campaign to complete a communal residence for young cancer patients and their families.
Graniczny’s profile along with the other honorees is available on Professional Builder magazine’s website.
