Anna Martin

Anna Martin

Anna Martin is the host of the Modern Love Podcast from The New York Times. When she's not talking into a mic inside her closet (otherwise known as her "home studio"), she likes to take very long walks in Prospect Park. Anna has volunteered with New York Cares at PS 196, and is grateful to be a part of this evening. Anna will Emcee this year's Soiree.



Brett Shannon

Brett Shannon, a Senior Vice President in CBRE's Agency Group, represents some of NYC's most prominent commercial real estate owners in the execution of complex strategies to develop, reposition, and stabilize large buildings. In his role, Brett has executed 6 million square feet of transactions and currently represents a portfolio that spans 13.5 million square feet. Brett's passion for cities (really the people, places, and institutions that make them) began as a high schooler in the Haight/Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco and, since then, has subsequently grown over the last 11 years in New York City. Brett's contribution to community organizations dates back to summers teaching at Aim High, a program that prepares underserved Bay Area middle schoolers for high school and beyond, and as an active member of Hamilton College's Association for Volunteering, Outreach, and Charity, when he was both a site director and tutor at Clinton Middle School as well as a youth soccer coach in Utica.

In addition to New York Cares, Brett and his wife, Julia (a fellow Hamiltonian), are regular supporters and members of a number of New York City-based organizations that include: International House, the New York Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park Alliance, and ROAR New York. They enjoy frequenting those venues with their two children, Isla and Nate.
