45th Annual Urban Leadership Award Dinner

The NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) Schack Institute of Real Estate will hold its 45th Annual Urban Leadership Award Dinner on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at the Mandarin Oriental, New York. Each year, 700 industry VIPs begin their evening with a reception, followed by dinner and a brief program that recognizes the honoree.

The Award was created in 1971 to honor and to recognize a professional leader who has contributed significantly to the growth and to the prestige of the real estate industry. This year, the Schack Institute of Real Estate is honoring Glenn J. Rufrano, Chief Executive Officer of VEREIT and an Advisory Board member of the NYUSPS Schack Institute of Real Estate. In addition to an extraordinary record of leadership at some of the industry's most visible REITs and real estate companies—VEREIT, Cushman & Wakefield, Centro Properties Group, New Plan Excel Realty Trust, and O'Connor Capital Partners, among many others—Glenn has been an outstanding teacher, mentor, and supporter of the NYUSPS Schack Institute of Real Estate and the REIT Center for many years.

Past winners of the Urban Leadership Award include: Robert S. Blumnethal, Adam O. Emmerich, Robin Panovka, Mary Ann Tighe, Mike Fascitelli, Bruce Ratner, Bill Rudin, Steve Ross, Mitchell E. Rudin, and Scott Rechler.
