IFMA member, Bill McCary (Allstate), was recently awarded the Real Estate MVP Award from Allstate Corporation.  Bill earned this recognition based on his hard work and efforts in providing excellent Facility Services support to the Hudson, Ohio location.  This includes balancing both the needs of a general office of 1,200 employees and a mission critical corporate Data Center.

Congratulations Bill!


IFMA Northern Ohio Chapter held their annual golf outing at Fowlers Mill Golf Course in Chesterland. With a shotgun start, all golfers hit the links and were hopeful their game would win them the first place foursome award. After a great day on the course, a steak dinner was served and then the infamous bucket of booze and lottery trees were raffled off. A great day was had by all!

Thank you to Gary Hutchins CFM and Bill McCary CFM, both of Allstate, for coordinating this year’s outing and Dan Shrickel of J&J Invision Flooring for volunteering for the day.
