“Strong market fundamentals were reflected in the quality of the transactions and the achievements of our members considered for recognition this year,” added Awards of Excellence Chair and NAIOP South Florida President-Elect Stephanie Rodriguez, vice president of Duke Realty. “This event is so important because it allows our members to celebrate their individual successes and those of their peers, fortifying the foundation of our collaborative and economically significant commercial real estate community.”
In an inspired toast, NAIOP South Florida presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to CBRE Senior Vice President Harry Tangalakis. With a commercial real estate career spanning more than 30 years, Tangalakis’s reputation precedes him. His countless successes and contributions to NAIOP South Florida, the community and the greater commercial real estate industry warrant the same distinction awarded to Edmund Ansin, Armando Codina, Doug Eagon, Alice Jackson and Terry Stiles among others.
“Our winners and finalists all deserve recognition,” Morgan added. “Their hard work and many achievements continue to propel Florida’s overall economy through a $19.3 billion commercial real estate sector, which puts more than 155,000 Floridians to work every day.”
