Message from the President


Fellow CoreNet Global Mid-Atlantic Colleagues

It is my great honor to serve as your Chapter President in 2017. This year we intend to continue the tradition of building on our Chapter’s past successes but with the specific goal to enhance the experiences of you, our members. In the year ahead, we hope to bring you diversity, in not only the programs and networking events available to you, but also diversity in the delivery format, venues, and event times, all in response to our ever evolving needs as corporate real estate professionals.

Serving with me on the executive committee is and equally dedicated and passionate group: Peter Van Emburgh, CBRE – Chapter Vice President; Karen Fields, Himes Associates – Treasurer; Stefanie Spurlin, Capital One – Secretary; and Al Nielsen, AOL – Immediate Past President and Advisor. I wish to personally thank the 2016 Chapter Board and in particular Al Nielsen for the leadership and direction throughout the last year. I firmly believe we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. As a result of your efforts, our chapter is in an incredibly strong position to continue meeting the needs of all our members.

I invite all current, former, and future members and sponsors to make 2017 a year of engagement. This year we will begin a journey that will explore new ways to deliver experiences for you, our members, that further your professional aspirations. The 2017 Chapter Board is energized and passionate about bringing you the best our region has to offer and I believe our collective efforts will result in a growing awareness of CoreNet Global and recognition of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter in our marketplace as a thought leader and the “go to” source in our industry. Join us on this journey!

Kind Regards, 

Mark Gorman, MCR SLCR
