Celebrates Team Members At Annual Stirling Honors Event
Stirling Properties commercial real estate company recently celebrated its 18th Annual Stirling Honors to recognize the successes and accomplishments of Team Stirling over the past year. The Stirling Honors luncheon was held at Fulton Alley in New Orleans. A Commercial Celebration Dinner was also organized to honor Commercial Agents and to grant Commercial Production Awards at The Chicory in New Orleans.
Stirling Properties employees were treated to a reinvigorating day of motivational messages, great food, team-building interaction, and, of course, bowling! Tim Williamson, President of NOLA Media Group, delivered the keynote address. REINVENTION was the overall theme of the day, inspiring the activities throughout. Marty Mayer, Stirling Properties President & CEO, served as the event host and emcee and discussed the need for a company to continually reinvent itself to grow and stay relevant in an ever-changing industry. Playing off the adage, “When nothing is sure, anything is possible,” he stressed that amidst the backdrop of such uncertainty in the business climate, we must be innovative and transform our strategic process to create new opportunities for progress. Robin Hayles and Ellen McCain were acknowledged as recipients of Stirling Properties’ most prestigious honor, the Exceeding Excellence Award, for extraordinary employee actions and innovations that better the company. Exceeding Excellence Award recipients are nominated and selected by their co-workers. Commercial Award recipients received recognition for Bronze, Silver, Platinum, Diamond and Ruby production levels based on individual Adjusted Gross Commission figures for 2016. Special acknowledgment was given to Rhonda Sharkawy, Senior Retail Leasing and Development Executive in New Orleans, for being the Top Commercial Agent in 2016!
