Welcome to the 37th Annual CREBA Awards!
Tonight, we gather to celebrate and reflect on the many highlights of 2018. Our members have seen success in all aspects of their lives: business endeavors, philanthropy and mentorship; we are proud to recognize them. In addition to our transaction, production and best in industry awards, we will once again recognize individuals with the Brendan McCarthy Memorial Award, the James L. Eichberg Broker of the Year award, the Rising Star Award, and The Joseph Stettinius Jr. Leadership Award. Even though it wasn’t signed in 2018, we will also take a few minutes to recognize the transformational aspect of the Amazon Headquarters deal.With so much growth in the Flex Space sector, we have also created a new award this year in the Best in Industry Category, we have added the “Best Flex Space Provider”. Please join me in congratulating award recipients , many of whom are profiled on the following pages.
CREBA continues to expand through membership and sponsorship. Your support and the growth of the organization has enabled us to donate to many worthy causes And we hope to continue giving back in 2019.
CREBA aims to provide relevant opportunities for our members through our programs. Education opportunities include: “CREBA Classroom” a series of in-depth lectures, presentations and/or panel discussions on timely topics; our “First Look Series” which offers “sneak peeks” at new and exciting development projects; and the “Breakfast of Champions” open to CREBA members age 35 and under who participate with senior industry leaders in a mentor/mentee discussion. Most of our events are free to members, so if you have not joined CREBA for 2019, join today to take advantage of these unique and high-level education opportunities. On the networking front, we have some favorite events like our annual “CREBA Golf Tournament” and a “Night at the Shore” rooftop party coming this June.
On behalf of CREBA, thank you for joining us! We are honored to serve you as we continue to elevate the commercial real estate industry of Greater Washington, DC.
