(GREENBELT, MD) – September 11, 2013 – Bozzuto Management Company, a division of The Bozzuto Group, announced today that Julie Smith, the company’s president, was named Multifamily Executive Magazine’s 2013 Executive of the Year.

The Executive of the Year Award, one of the most prestigious honors of the multifamily industry, is given annually to the development or management professional dedicated to providing exceptional multifamily housing, exemplary customer service, and strong financial performance.

The judges select their winner based on the individual’s ”achievements in leadership style, unique approach to handling day-to-day challenges, opportunities resulting in a quantifiable impact on the company’s performance and reputation; and their impact on the multifamily industry and ongoing commitment to the multifamily industry.”

“Without a moment of hesitation, I emphatically agree with MFE’s decision!  Julie has been more than an integral part of our organization for 24 years; to many of us she has been a source of inspiration, a role model, and a friend.  She brings a smile to every group she joins and solid leadership every day,” said Tom Bozzuto, chairman & CEO of The Bozzuto Group.  “As I’m quoted as saying in the article, The Bozzuto Group wouldn’t be the organization it is today without her, her spirit, and her tremendous creativity.”
