MasciaPat_180wAt the sold-out Sept 16 Awards of Excellence event, NAIOP Minnesota awarded its 2015 President’s Award to Patrick Emmett Mascia. The President’s Award is NAIOP Minnesota’s highest individual honor. Each year, nominations are sought from the membership and chapter leaders select a recipient from a prestigious group of nominees.

Pat’s career began in 1991 as an associate in the Real Estate Section of Briggs and Morgan. In 1997, Pat joined Opus as Associate General Counsel. In 1999, Pat left the practice of law and transitioned to Opus Properties (now Founders Properties) as Vice President of Dispositions, Finance & Investments, working primarily on fund formation, finance and disposition transactions for the Opus investment fund family.

In 2004, Duke Realty hired Pat as Senior Vice President for Minneapolis/St. Paul Operations. Pat led a 54 person office and his Duke team brought projects such as the Amherst H. Wilder Center, Norman Pointe II, some warehouses and “The West End” redevelopment to the market. After 10 years at Duke, Pat brought his real estate investment, management and development experience back to Briggs and Morgan, where he is now a shareholder and Co-Chair of the Firm’s Financial Institutions and Real Estate Section.

Active in the community, a partial list of Pat’s involvement and leadership includes past president of the Creighton University National Alumni Board, current chair of the Minnesota District Council of the Urban Land Institute, past board positions with Discover St. Louis Park, the Twin West Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Frogtown Community Development Corporation.

With NAIOP, Pat has been exemplary in his long-time commitment and involvement. He has been involved in one or more volunteer groups during each year of being a member, with activities including mentorship to NAIOP’s developing leader members, as a speaker and moderator and as a participant in numerous task force discussions. Pat has chaired public policy, education, sponsorship and political action, as well being as a multi-term board member and 2012 chapter president. If NAIOP has needed insight on the marketplace, the companies and individuals … and how best to “advance-the-ball” … Pat Mascia has been proven to be the call to make. On behalf of the NAIOP membership, congratulations Pat!
