How One JLL Team Member Inspires a Future Generation of Leaders with Junior Achievement

0 CommentsBy

Our communities depend on us to inspire future generations to excel –– both personally and professionally. Those individuals will grow up to be our future leaders, and need us for support and encouragement to succeed.

Ed Manko, Senior Vice President of JLL’s Pittsburgh office, takes this thought to heart. In fact, he has volunteered at Junior Achievement (JA) for more than 25 years. Manko was invited to join the efforts years ago by the former JA chairman. Ever since, he’s worked primarily on funding efforts, fundraising events, and serves on the organization’s board of directors.

Over the years, Manko has helped raise more than $5 million to support the foundation’s efforts.

On Tuesday, March 8, Manko was honored with JA’s Gold Leadership Award, which provides recognition for individual’s who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the organization. He was chosen from more than 218,000 volunteers. Congratulations, Ed!

This year, Owens Corning recognized JLL with one of its highest honors — the Supplier Recognition Award. JLL’s team stood apart from more than 6,000 other suppliers who competed for the award through value creation and cost savings.

But, let’s rewind to where it all started.

Manufacturer Meets Real Estate Expert

JLL’s relationship with Owens Corning dates back to 1998, when it was initiated by The Staubach Company. It became official in 2001 when Staubach formalized its relationship with Owens Corning in an exclusive outsource agreement.

Since then—and following it’s merger with Staubach—JLL has helped the global manufacturer with asset and lease management, incentives consulting, strategic planning, and property disposition and acquisition.

Here at JLL, we are proud to work so closely with a best-in-class organization like Owens Corning, and even more honored to be recognized with its most prestigious award.
