CoreNet Global is the world’s leading association for corporate real estate and workplace professionals, service providers and economic developers. They have over 7000 members – including 70% of the Fortune 100 and nearly half of the Forbes Global 2000 – who meet locally, globally and virtually to develop networks, share knowledge, learn and thrive professionally (yes, we know we lifted that straight from their website, but they really did put it better than we ever could).

In order to be able to better deal with their member’s individual needs, CoreNet has set up 50 separate locally-based chapters of the company in various countries across the world. These chapters bind the 7000 strong community together and provide them with a forum to meet and hear experts on topics related to the industry. With around 500 members, the UK Chapter is one of the largest, and it’s leaders’ aim is to continually provide for and value each of its members.

Every year the UK Chapter of CoreNet holds it’s very own awards ceremony, and this year is no different. The awards will be taking place at a Christmas breakfast being held at Plaisterers’ Hall on the 3rd December and will be hosted by Julia Hartley Brewer – former assistant editor and columnist on The Sunday Express. PENSON decided to get involved and celebrate alongside CoreNet by sponsoring their 2013 Executive Of The Year Award. It’s set to be a fantastic day for all involved and we’re so happy to be a part of it.
