The Leasing Broker of the Year is the program's most prestigious award, given to the broker who best partners with VEREIT's leasing team to provide local market insight. This year's Leasing Broker of the Year award was presented to Marcy Wood of CBRE. She currently leases a 65,000-square-foot shopping center managed by VEREIT. Wood was responsible for negotiating the lease with a major outpatient hospital tenant that is now the anchor of the Bartlett, IL shopping center. This new tenant has increased foot traffic and the overall value of this retail space.

"The annual event provides an opportunity to recognize the very best of our leasing broker partners," stated Brett Sheets, Senior Vice President of Leasing for VEREIT. "We work with these brokers daily to understand the evolving marketplace and receive local industry insight to ensure our properties have full occupancy. When combined with the expertise of our in-house leasing team, our extensive national network of leasing brokers enables VEREIT to attract top-quality tenants. Over the last year, Marcy Wood has utilized her impressive market knowledge while demonstrating the excellence we expect from our leasing partners."

Overall, award recipients demonstrated superior performance and made substantial contributions to maximize the value of VEREIT's owned and managed portfolio. Criteria for the awards include number and quality of transactions, accuracy and timeliness of reports, quality of marketing materials, market knowledge and prospecting prowess. Additional award recipients included:

Buff Teague and Leigh Dale Younce with JLL in Mobile, Alabama were recognized with the Best Prospector Team award. This team currently leases four managed assets in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Teague and Younce were recognized due to their impressive ability to identify potential tenants in smaller markets.
