Steve Dunn, director of workplace for Falls Church-based CSRA Inc., has been named “Corporate Real Estate Executive of the Year” by CoreNet Global, a professional association for corporate real estate professionals.
The announcement was made last week during CoreNet Global’s Awards & Recognition Dinner in Seattle.
As part of its announcement, CoreNet Global highlighted the achievements that led to Dunn’s award: “His achievements include negotiating a contract for real estate and facilities management services that resulted in $1.5 million in annual savings; consolidating more than 100 facility service vendors under a single contract; and instituting CSRA quality management systems,” CoreNet said in the announcement. “[Dunn’s] efforts to right-size CSRA’s portfolio resulted in closure of 15 percent (35) of facilities and savings of $19.7 million, which benefited shareholders and allowed for reinvestment opportunities. Overall, he reduced the workplace budget by 15 percent in one year and reduced rentable square feet in the portfolio by 15 percent.”
