Raymond Quartararo, the head of Global Design and Construction within Global Real Estate at JP Morgan Chase, will be honored at the inaugural Autumn Leaves Gala for James Lenox House and Carnegie East House next Tuesday (Oct. 13).
Quartararo will receive the organization’s prestigious Mary Lenox Sheafe Award, presented to those who demonstrate extraordinary dedication and leadership to New York City and its older adults.
Quartararo has been involved with James Lenox House and Carnegie East House, independent and enriched living communities for older adults, for nearly 10 years.
He has played a key role in garnering the support of the real estate and construction community for the non-profits, having realized that elder care is becoming an important, but complicated issue in today’s healthcare environment.
Quartararo is often recognized for his many philanthropic commitments as well as his project management of high profile assignments, such as the renovations of the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden, and the construction of Bank of America’s headquarters at One Bryant Park.
“I have dedicated my career to helping people create spaces that help their businesses flourish, so I am gratified to support an organization that is all about giving older adults environments and services that help them get the most out of their lives,” Quartararo said. “I am grateful for this honor, and to work with so many of my colleagues in the real estate world to make this Autumn Leaves Gala the most successful ever.”
The Gala will be held Tuesday, October 13, at the University Club in New York City. Nicola Heryet of Cushman & Wakefield will also be recognized with the Mary Lenox Sheafe Award. Heryet has also been involved with the James Lenox House for decades – serving on the board for nearly 20 years, most recently as president.
