Year in Review: Community Engagement Committee Reflects on 2023

We’ve had a busy year, but it hasn’t all been business. Our Community Engagement Committee is responsible for planning and coordinating the events that support our culture and has also been hard at work.

It’s been a year of growth as we’ve coordinated 17 events, from internal events that have brought us together to external activities that support important causes and organizations that lift the Columbus community.

As a locally owned and operated firm that has been helping to shape the skyline of Columbus for more than 50 years, we are looking toward the future. We are thinking about our impact on people – our employees, our clients, and our community and the importance of connection. As we move into 2024, we wanted to share all we have achieved together this year because even though we are best known as Columbus’ commercial real estate experts, we are also Columbus. Our roots, our families, and our futures are here, and there has never been a better time to be in Columbus!
