During a special ceremony that took place at Expo Italia on Thursday May 24, 2007, Philippe Zivkovic, Chairman of BNP Paribas Real Estate and President of BNL Fondi Immobiliari SGR, has received the 'Corporate Loyalty Award' for the year 2007. The recognition was set up by AICI Junior, the Italian Association of Real Estate Consultants and Managers. The prize has been awarded to Philippe Zivkovic for his 33-year career with the BNP Paribas Group.
"It is an honor for me to receive this award of loyalty from the young representatives of the real estate market in Italy," Philippe Zivkovic commented. "I'm very proud because we arrived in Italy only two years ago and BNP Paribas Real Estate has already become an important player in Italy with our four business lines and more than 100 people. Thanks to BNL Fondi Immobiliari we also are the second real estate asset manager in Italy.°
Now in its second edition, the Corporate Loyalty Award of 2006 was assigned to Giovanni Nassi, Vice Chairman of Pirelli RE, for his 62 years of activity with the Pirelli Group.
