2009 Newsmaker of the Year

Rand Griffin, the CEO of Columbia based Corporate Office Properties Trust has been named the 2009 Newsmaker of the Year by the Baltimore Business Journal.

"At a time when many in the commercial real estate industry are licking wounds inflicted by an unforgiving recession, Rand Griffin-led COPT is still raising, spending, and making money. That’s why the Baltimore Business Journal picked him as its 2009 Newsmaker of the Year."

Congratulations Rand!

I was with Rand in a 20,000 sq ft home at a fundraiser once. He told me that he couldn't understand owning a 20,000 sq ft building which wasn't earning income. Not an unsurprising, tongue in cheek remark from someone who knows the ins and outs of the real estate business.
