Michaela Fortunato, corporate marketing manager for Sunrise Management, has been lauded by two San Diego publications – The Daily Transcript and SD Metro magazine– in annual “40 under 40” round-ups which spotlight San Diego’s leading young professionals.
Each year The Daily Transcript, a leading San Diego business publication, honors young professionals doing the most cutting-edge work
in real estate, construction, development, law, finance, government and the non-profit sector.
This year’s list was released in a special supplement spotlighting the city’s rising professionals. According to the Transcript, all honorees have made an important impact on their company, industry and community.
This marks the 21st year SD Metro has honored San Diego’s outstanding young leaders. Since the awards began in 1999, the longtime business magazine has recognized 840 young San Diegans for their accomplishments.
Well deserving of both accolades, Fortunato started at Sunrise – which currently oversees more than 13,000 multifamily units throughout California and the Southwest – as a marketing coordinator and has since climbed the ranks to corporate marketing manager. In her current role, she participates in strategic planning as well as identification and implementation of industry best practices. Fortunato has excelled in the real estate sector for nearly six years — working in multiple aspects of the industry to utilize her marketing, business development and leadership strengths. A key member of the Sunrise Management marketing team, she is currently working hard to educate employees, residents and onsite property managers about the company’s COVID-19 initiatives, while also focusing on business development.
An active member of the Building Industry Association of San Diego (BIA), she was recently named chair of the board for the Young Generation of Leaders (yGEN) Council of the BIA, leading that organization to foster the professional growth of the San Diego home building industry’s future leaders.
