Megan Creecy-Herman was named most outstanding chairman of the year and NAIOP Arizona earned two additional national awards Tuesday night at the industry organization’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
Creecy-Herman, NAIOP Arizona’s 2014 chairman, was honored with the prestigious national award for Outstanding Leadership by A Chapter President. Creecy-Herman was the first woman to serve as chairman for NAIOP Arizona.
“I am extremely honored to have been recognized with such an esteemed award,” said Creecy-Herman, a senior director at Liberty Property Trust. “NAIOP chapters around the country are led by some of the most accomplished real estate leaders in our industry. I am humbled to have been bestowed this honor.”
NAIOP Arizona also won national awards for Best Communication Tool among large chapters in the U.S., and Best Sponsorship Program. The three national awards tie a record for most in one year for NAIOP Arizona. It is also the 10th year in a row it has won at least one major award.
“It’s a privilege to follow Megan, who has left as chapter chairman with such high regard among her NAIOP peers around the country,” said 2015 Chairman Tom Johnston, managing director at Voit Real Estate Services.
The efforts of the Communications Committee were led by Steven Schwarz (ViaWest Group), Danielle Feroleto (Small Giants), Kassandra Bruhn (SimonCRE) and Peter Madrid (Cushman & Wakefield of Arizona). NAIOP Arizona was honored for its social media, marketing and media outreach efforts.
The Corporate Sponsorship Program is led by co-chairs Tammy Carr (Balfour Beatty Construction) and Andrew Cheney (Lee & Associates) with NAIOP Arizona President Tim Lawless and Vice President Katrina DeBaker spearheading the effort.
