For the first time in 41 years, a woman has been the recipient of the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate’s Urban Leadership Award.
Mary Ann Tighe, head of CB Richard Ellis’ New York sales region and chair of the Real Estate Board of New York, was given the award at last night’s dinner at the Waldorf Astoria with around 700 real execs in attendance (see photos above).
Developer Larry Silverstein literally brought Tighe to tears as he talked about her career achievements and her family.

James Kuhn, president of Newmark Knight Frank, said “when they invited Tighe to be this year’s honoree he didn’t know about the transaction that [in his mind] might turn out to be the biggest transformational deal in his lifetime. That of course is the Conde Nast deal down at the World Trade Center.” Tighe represented Conde Nast in the transaction.

Tighe said that her success has been due in part because she has through the years chosen the “right clients, the right deals and the right partners.”
Michael Alfano, executive vice president at New York University, announced that the school would be building a university in Shanghai and be the first outside-degree granting institution in China. — Marc Becker
