Ralph Orlando, PE, a Division President based out of our Eatontown, New Jersey office, is being honored with NAIOP’s Pillar Award for 2014. The Pillar Award was created in 2010 to honor members who have set an example for others to emulate through their active membership, service in leadership roles, advocacy, and sponsorship.
Orlando, a well-respected veteran of the New Jersey engineering and development communities, has been a member of the New Jersey Chapter of the Commercial Real Estate Development Association since 2007. Since then he has served as a Corporate Member, Energy and Sustainability Committee Member, Board of Trustees Member, Co-Chair of the Energy Master Plan Task Force, Vice President for Associate Affairs, and Community Action Project Sponsor.
“In my 7 years as a member, NAIOP has proven to be one of the most valuable industry associations I’ve been involved with,” says Orlando. “Not only does it provide opportunities to make connections and form alliances that may not have otherwise been possible, it is also a great forum for industry education, thought leadership, and community service, which is something I’m passionate about. I am honored to receive this award as recognition of my support of the organization.”
NAIOP is a leading organization for developers, owners, and other related professionals. The New Jersey chapter focuses on advancing development in a responsible, sustainable way that benefits the communities where members live and work.
“Ralph really exemplifies a lot of what NAIOP NJ stands for,” says Frank Romeo, East Coast Director of Operations for Partner. “His principles and commitment to excellence have inspired a great deal of loyalty over the years, from his staff and clients alike. We’re excited to congratulate Ralph on this honor!”
Orlando will be honored at the 2014 President’s Awards and Hall of Fame Dinner, taking place November 3rd at the Hilton Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
