Shalimar Thomas, Executive Director of the North Broad Renaissance (NBR), has been named one of the Philadelphia Business Journal’s 2016 40 Under 40 recipients.


Thomas joined NBR in November 2015 and is leading efforts to develop strategies that will revitalize one of Philadelphia’s largest and most prominent corridors – North Broad Street.

The 40 Under 40 award, now in its 22nd year, recognizes young professionals in Greater Philadelphia for outstanding success and contribution to their community.

“It’s exciting to be recognized on such a prestigious list and among other amazing leaders,” states Thomas. “I don’t take this recognition, or the opportunities I’ve been awarded lightly, and I’m looking forward to working with our stakeholders to do some incredible work along North Broad.”

The North Broad Renaissance (NBR) – in partnership with community stakeholders – is responsible for revitalizing, creating opportunity, and improving the economic power and overall quality of life along North Broad Street from City Hall to Germantown Avenue. Top priorities include clean and safe corridors, maintenance and landscaping, marketing and communications and street lighting.
