Delta Media CEO Michael Minard Named 2022 RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker


CANTON, Ohio, Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Michael Minard, CEO and owner of Delta Media Group, has been selected as a RISMedia 2022 Real Estate Newsmaker. Minard joins a dynamic group of some 300 top real estate industry leaders making headlines because of their valuable contributions to the industry.

Minard’s efforts, according to RISMedia, a leader in U.S. real estate news and information services, positively impacted home buyers and sellers as well as the communities that Delta Media and its real estate brokerage clients serve.

RISMedia’s 2022 Real Estate Newsmakers were nominated late last year by RISMedia readers and editors and are showcased in the following categories: Influencers, Trailblazers, Futurists, Achievers, Crusaders, Motivators, Luminaries, and Trendsetters.

Selected as an “Influencer,” Minard is listed as a 2022 Real Estate Newsmakers in both an online directory on, as well as appearing in the February issue of its flagship publication, Real Estate magazine.

“From records being broken, to the glass ceilings being shattered and the creativity and technology innovation being implemented through our changing times, to the always-inspiring and wonderful charitable work being done across the nation, we continue to be amazed by the incredible ingenuity and success of the professionals in the real estate community, over 300 of whom, like Mike, we are honoring as part of our fifth year for Real Estate Newsmakers,” said John Featherston, CEO, president and publisher of RISMedia.

“Once again, we are proud to recognize the hard work, dedication and determination of real estate's finest professionals—the 2022 Real Estate Newsmakers—who went above and beyond in 2021 amid the challenges and opportunities of this historic market. Help us in celebrating their hard-earned recognition,” Featherston added.

RISMedia, in honoring Minard wrote:

“Michael Minard focuses on building and maintaining a cohesive team at Delta Media Group and recognizing their contributions. In 2020 and 2021, he worked to assemble the right management team, provided them with the tools they needed to operate effectively, developed the team through internal and external programs, and continually improved product deliverability and customer experience as the company grew.

In response to the pandemic, Delta Media Group created virtual open houses and held free webinars to help agents adjust. In 2021, after the Zillow-ShowingTime deal, Minard and his team accelerated the creation of Local Showings as an alternative and offered a ‘No-Sell Guarantee.’

Minard believes in the importance of focusing on one’s goals. He quoted this piece of wisdom from Zig Ziglar: ‘If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.’”

RISMedia will honor this year's Real Estate Newsmakers at RISMedia's Newsmakers Reception & Dinner, being held Sept. 7 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with our 2022 CEO & Leadership Exchange.

“Being nominated by industry peers and selected by the accomplished editors and leadership at RISMedia, makes this recognition especially humbling,” Minard said. “The truth is every member of our Delta Media team is responsible for our continued success and incredible growth we enjoy because we all stepped up our game to help our clients succeed. Doing the right thing is what has earned us this attention and that is the Delta way,” he added.
