BTEA to honor development visionaries at annual awards.
The theme of this year's dinner, which will feature a keynote address by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, is "Celebrating New York's Development Visionaries."
The BTEA's Leadership Awards are presented to accomplished individuals that have proven themselves exemplary leaders and mentors with the vision, dedication and fortitude to continuously shape the city's skyline.
The BTEA will honor Stephen M. Ross, chairman and CEO of The Related Companies, L.P., and Anthony Coscia, chairman of Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for their contributions to New York City's economic future.
"New York continues to build, grow and provide economic opportunities thanks to these two individuals," said Louis J. Coletti, president and CEO of the BTEA. "They are true visionaries."
Two former BTEA chairmen, James H. Jones, president of TDX Construction Corp., and Lester Wuerfl also will be honored for their contributions to the Building Trades Employers' Association.
"Jimmy and Les have been key to the BTEA's success over the years," says Coletti. "It is only fitting that we honor them for their extraordinary contributions to our organization."
The 2006 BTEA Leadership Dinner Chairmen are James Abadie, principal-in-charge and senior vice president of Bovis Lend Lease LMB, Inc. and Richard Wood, president of Plaza Construction Corporation.
The dinner will be held on Thursday, April 20, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Gotham Hall, located at Broadway and 36th Street in Manhattan. For ticket information, please call 212-704-9745 or email email@example.com.
