Lynn Drake, president and founder of Compass Commercial / ITRA Global has been named an Entrepreneur of Distinction by Corp! Magazine, based in Warren, Michigan. The magazine recognizes those individuals who are committed to entrepreneurial success with its annual Michigan Entrepreneurs of Distinction Awards.
To achieve this designation, Drake had to articulate impressive business activity, background and values as well as illustrate major accomplishments, special skills and innovative approaches. Well known in the industry as a commercial realtor, Drake is focused on maintaining “true north” for her corporate clients.
Her reputation has been built on 20 years of commercial real estate experience and expertise in corporate and institutional workplace design, planning and project implementation. She has worked hard to succeed in a heavily male-dominated industry. In addition to being in an elite group of 5 percent of the females practicing Commercial Real Estate, Drake has not only survived a major recession, she also found an opportunity to open her own firm.
She will be honored at a breakfast celebration on Thursday, June 12 at VisTaTech Center in Livonia. She will also be featured in the Corp! Magazine May/June 2014 print edition and in the magazine’s June 19th Everything Business digital ePublication.
“This is a tremendous honor for me, both professionally and personally,” Drake said. “I am proud to be a part of Michigan’s business success, and I look forward to many more successful years of doing business in this state.
“Having been selected as the Detroit affiliate of ITRA Global (International Tenant Representative Alliance) in 2010, Compass Commercial / ITRA Global has been a tremendous asset to this organization,” stated Mylinda Vick, Chairman of ITRA Global. “Lynn has represented many corporate accounts such as the State of Michigan and continues to work on many other transactions with other ITRA Global affiliates throughout North America. We are fortunate to have Lynn on our team.”
