“We couldn’t agree more with BOMA’s assessment of Krystal,” said Kevin Purcell, president, Leasing and Management Services at MB Real Estate. “I’ve worked with her for over 20 years and know well how her knowledge, team leadership and energy have produced positive asset performance and value generation results – year after year.”

“I am truly honored to be the recipient of this award,” commented Kurinsky. “I owe thanks to the 181 West Madison staff, building ownership, and MB Real Estate because, without them, the amazing things we accomplished these past couple of years would not have been possible. This is most definitely an award shared by my entire 181 team.”

Kurinsky is a long-standing member of BOMA and has served on its Labor Committee since 2008, successfully negotiating contracts and hearing grievance cases twice a year for the past eight years.
