With an abundance of grace and gratitude, Railton describes this new recognition as being, “an incredible honor, that was very unexpected. One of the most flattering parts of the award, is that it is given by past winners; people I have looked up to for many years and greatly respect. Here I am, realizing what an incredible journey I have been on throughout my career. It is incredibly rewarding.”


TEA founder Monty Lunde goes on to add that “Jeremy is individually imaginative while also being uniquely inclusive, supportive and mentoring to all who help make his creative visions real. He is constantly testing the boundaries of how to create ‘wow,’ but is conscious of real-world budgets and schedules. Jeremy represents the best of what our industry stands for and has elevated many others through his efforts and support.”
