Woodbury, NY At last week’s annual meeting, the Commercial Industrial Brokers Society of Long Island (CIBS) recognized the industry’s best and brightest at their annual awards ceremony. Among this year’s honorees was immediate past-president and managing director at Jones Lang LaSalle David Leviton, who was awarded the 2021 Achievement award for his longstanding work to strengthen CIBS and the commercial real estate industry on Long Island.
“David’s contribution to our industry and organization have been considerable,” said CIBS president Daniel Wiener. “Thanks to his leadership and the leadership of so many dedicated professionals, the commercial real estate industry continues to grow despite the past 18 months of uncertainty.”
CIBS also honored Daniel Ginsberg and David Hercman of Milvado as the Associate Members of the Year. Milvado has been an invaluable partner and supporter of CIBS over the last several years.
Additionally, three young brokers were awarded the Rising Star award: Jon Winzelberg of RIPCO; John Giannuzzi of Cushman & Wakefield; and James Parnes of Schacker Realty.
The Rising Star award is given to young professionals who show talent and commitment to the best practices of the commercial real estate industry.
The Commercial and Industrial Brokers Society of Long Island (CIBS) was formed in 1993 out of the shared belief among the region’s leading brokers that the region needed a unified voice. Since its formation, CIBS has helped upgrade the industry by offering hundreds of educational programs, seminars, and presentations; advocated professional standards and offered grievance resolution; provided informal mentoring relationships; raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities; and created social settings in which colleagues have become friends, and competitors respected peers.
