Stephen Siegel honored for contributions to industry.

The Global Chairman of CB Richard Ellis, Stephen B. Siegel, was honored by the Real Estate and Construction Industry Chapter of American ORT with the "ORT Community Achievement Award."

The award was presesented to Mr. Siegel by Jonathan L. Mechanic, chairman of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson's real estate department, at the organzation's Annual Tribute Luncheon held on December 15 at the Sheraton New York. Mr. Mechanic was introduced by Chapter President Arnold Penner.

"We are proud to recognize one of the most widely regarded figures in commercial real estate, as well as one of the industry's most talented and prolific professionals," said Mr. Penner. "In addition to his noted professional accomplishments, Stephen has been recognized on numerous occasions for his generous philanthropy and commitment to the health and education of children."

"It is truly an honor to be recognized by the American ORT, one of the most respected organizations for helping students around the word reach their full potential," said Mr. Siegel. "ORT's global network is making a real difference in the lives of thousands of children in 60 countries, and it is an honor to be associated with this important work."

Mr. Siegel's visionary leadership throughout his distinguished 35-year career has translated into unparalleled success and admiration from the business industry. Today, Mr. Siegel is one of the industry's most widely respected personalities and in 2003, Crain's New York Business named him "One of the 100 Most Influential Business Leaders in New York City."

Mr. Siegel is recognized as much for his generosity and contributions to the quality of life in New York as he is for his dedication to the business community and economic vitality of the City.

He has parlayed his success in business to his many philanthropic activities.
