MEET THE MEMBERS OF COHORT 2
February 2020 – January 2021
FORUM LEADER: Paige Montgomery
Paige has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Prior to working in real estate, she co-founded one of the nation’s fastest growing logistics transportation companies. As co-founder and managing partner, Paige used her expertise in business development and marketing to create robust marketing materials, a cutting edge company website and recruiting campaigns, all of which received numerous accolades for breaking through the monotony of the industry. Astronomical revenue growth was inevitable, eclipsing $1MM in year one, and excelling past $15MM in year five.
Paige sold her interest in the still growing business to focus solely on what has become her passion; assisting clients in their real estate needs.
