SIOR Chicago Presents Richard G. Levy Presidents Award to George Cibula

The Chicago Chapter of the Society of Industrial & Office Realtors (SIOR) presented the Richard G. Levy Presidents Award to George Cibula, chairman & CEO of DarwinPW Realty. The award was given at SIOR Chicago’s recent holiday luncheon. 

One recipient is chosen each year by the SIOR Chicago Chapter Executive Board as a member they feel exemplifies outstanding achievements both in and out of the commercial real estate industry. The award’s namesake, Richard G. Levy, was a highly revered leader within the real estate community. 

Cibula’s 50-year career in industrial real estate brokerage began at Cushman & Wakefield, and in 1975 he founded Darwin Realty & Development Corporation. Cibula has brokered some of the largest industrial real estate transactions in the Midwest and is the managing partner in more than 60 industrial properties in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin totaling 4.5 million square feet.
