Boston, MA On May 23rd, the New England Chapter of CoreNet Global honored the winners of its annual Awards of Excellence, showcasing some of the most impressive corporate real estate people (CRE) and projects in the area. At the event, chapter president Adam Fandrey also posthumously honored George Conti with the President’s Award and officially renamed the chapter’s young leadership program as the George M. Conti Young Leaders Professional Development Program.

“George was universally respected by our entire CRE community and was an active supporter and instructor in this program,” said Fandrey. “His passion for teaching and developing young talent was palpable, and in recognition of that dedication, we’re renaming the program in his honor.” 

Conti was a senior member of the Iron Mountain Global Real Estate team, an active member, leader, and instructor in the New England Chapter of CoreNet Global, and an adjunct professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology. His wife and children accepted the Doug Noonan President’s Award on his behalf at the awards event.

The event was supported by a number of corporate sponsors, also listed below. “It was such an honor to celebrate our industry and these amazing winners together,” said Fandrey. “We couldn’t host these kinds of events without the generous support of our sponsors.
