NNTG'S COLLEEN QUIRK BECOMES COMPANY'S SECOND GOLDIE SCHOLAR
Near North is honored to announce that The Goldie Initiative has selected another member of Near North’s team to join their elite Goldie Scholar program. Colleen Quirk, Director and Senior Counsel, was accepted as one of the Goldie Initiative’s 2018 cohort of scholarship beneficiaries. Ms. Quirk joins Near North’s Marketing Manager, Mary Fran Murphy who is a Goldie Scholar alumna. The scholarship will aid Ms. Quirk as she pursues her Executive MBA at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. Mrs. Murphy earned the designation of the Goldie Scholar in 2013 while pursuing her Masters in Real Estate at Roosevelt University. Mrs. Murphy now serves on the initiative’s Leadership Development Council. Near North is beyond proud to have not only one, but two employees who are passionate about furthering their education and immersing themselves in the commercial real estate industry.

Near North would like to congratulate all the incoming Goldie Scholars and The Goldie Initiative for their continued support of women in the industry.
