MIAMI, FL, October 27, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ilene Munoz, RPA, General Manager of 600 Brickell at Brickell World Plaza has been awarded the 2012 Movers and Shakers Award by South Florida Business Leader Magazine. The award honors up and coming business leaders in the region. She was recognized along with 30 other winners from 500 nominees from various industries at a ceremony on October 16, 2012.
"Ilene is blazing a new trail in commercial real estate management because 600 Brickell is like no other Class-A building. It's location in the heart of the business district and its amenities certainly create a unique sense of place," said Tracy Story, president of leasing and management for Foram Group.
"However, the building's intricate and redundant technology and security systems completely redefine the role and complexity of a general manager. We are proud of Ilene's professional accomplishments and of this recognition."
In addition to managing the 40-story, high-tech building, Munoz has spearheaded a number of community relations initiatives aimed at branding Brickell World Plaza as the newest venue for community gatherings, cultural events and entertainment. In the last few months Brickell World Plaza has hosted free monthly, "Movies on the Plaza," a community-building program, where the public is invited to enjoy a night out on the 30,000 square-foot plaza. Additionally Munoz has created a signature holiday event where the community can come together to support local non-profit organizations at Brickell Avenue's premier food and wine festival, Savor the Season, scheduled for November, 17, 2012.
Munoz is a graduate of BOMI International and Sobelshon School of Real Estate in New York and has been a licensed Florida Real Estate Sales Associate since 1997. She earned her BOMI International's RPA (Real Property Administrator) designation in 2002. She is a member of BOMA, Miami-Dade Chapter and lives in Palmetto Bay.
