8 Mar, 2010, Chicago
Sean M. Henrick, an associate director for Cushman & Wakefield of Illinois, has been named as the recipient of the 2009 Frank Mahoney Award of Excellence by the Association of Industrial Real Estate Brokers (AIRE).
The award, which was created in the early 1990s, is named for beloved former AIRE member Frank Mahoney and given annually to an AIRE member with less than five years of brokerage experience who best exemplifies the organization's high standards for performance, ethics and community service.
"To receive an award named after a man such as Frank Mahoney is a tremendous honor indeed," said current AIRE President Matt Rogatz. "We are confident that Sean will continue to carry on Frank's legacy and the high ideals of AIRE, which include ethics, education and cooperation."
Henrick, 29, is a member of the industry-leading industrial and technology services group at Cushman & Wakefield. He specializes in business development and client services including the structuring and negotiating of commercial leases and assisting with the acquisition and dispositions of property for industrial owners and users.
In 2006, 2007 and 2008 he was recognized as one of Chicago's top 25 leasing brokers by the CoStar "PowerBroker" program and, in 2008, was named by Cushman & Wakefield as the company's "Most Promising Transactional Professional." In addition to his active membership in AIRE, he is also pursuing his CCIM designation and is also a member of NAIOP, WERC and the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
"Sean is the personification of the esprit de corps philosophy that we have worked to instill at Cushman & Wakefield," said Aaron Block, head of Cushman & Wakefield's Chicago office. "His enthusiasm, tireless work ethic and team-first mentality are contagious to everyone he interacts with. I am confident that he is going to become an even bigger star in our company and in our industry in the years to come."
Aside from his professional pursuits, Henrick is also involved in a wide variety of community activities here in the Chicago area. He tutors needy Chicago Public Schools students preparing for college entrance exams as part of the Griffith Tutoring Group and serves on the Children?s Memorial Hospital Young Associates Board helping to organize fundraising events and public service projects for young professionals throughout Chicago.
Henrick is a 2002 graduate of Lake Forest College and currently resides in Chicago.
