A peer recognition honor determined by a group of 100 industry leaders, the CPE Executive of the Year Awards have been announced by Commercial Property Executive magazine, and Duke Realty CEO Jim Connor has been named to the list.
Introduced in 1996 to highlight achievements in commercial real estate, the awards recognize leaders in traditional and emerging sectors. Connor earned an honorable mention in the Industrial Property Executive of the Year category, in part for driving a more than 50% increase in Duke Realty’s U.S. industrial portfolio—now at 155 million square feet in 20 logistics markets.
“Economic challenges and political uncertainty made 2019 a demanding year,” Connor said, “and so I’m especially proud of how my colleagues and I have been able to keep our portfolio strong and grow it substantially. I so appreciate the recognition of our efforts from my peers in the industry. We plan to keep the momentum going in 2020.”
