Chicago-based Golub & Company, an international real estate investment and development firm, has been honored by the Family Business Center at Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business as the Illinois Family Business of the Year, in the medium-sized business category. In its 24th year, the awards program celebrates Illinois family businesses with a strong commitment to both business and family. In addition to business success, those recognized have demonstrated multi-generational family business involvement, contributions to industry and community, and innovative business practices and strategies.
Paula Harris, principal and senior vice president, accepted the award on behalf of Golub & Company and the entire family, including co-principals Michael Newman, president and CEO, and Lee Golub, executive vice president, her father Eugene Golub, founder and chairman of the board, and third generation family members Alex Newman, Laura Newman, Samantha Patinkin and Josh Patinkin.
“Working, building and growing a successful family business certainly isn’t easy, but it is one of the most thrilling and fulfilling things in life,” said Harris. “Instilled with our core values of honesty, integrity and respect, we’ve grown the company into an even stronger and more innovative entity in the real estate industry. And we’re laying the foundation for our family business future.”
Golub & Company was established in 1960 by Eugene Golub, and the company has since welcomed a second and third generation to the family business. Golub & Company has maintained a strong reputation as a real estate investment and development firm, and boasts a diverse portfolio of multi-family, office and mixed-use properties in the U.S. and Central Europe. The company also prides itself on being a good corporate citizen, supporting the Chicago-area community through the Golub Family Foundation and GoCommunity, its award-winning employee volunteering program.
