In his October 21 remarks at the Urban Land Institute’s Fall Meeting in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio praised Rob Speyer’s work with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, calling Speyer “tremendously civically oriented.”
Speyer is serving as co-chair of the 2014 ULI Fall Meeting Steering Committee.
From Mayor de Blasio’s speech:
Right now, I’m especially appreciative of the two folks – who I’ve had the joy of working with on a lot of issues here in the city – who are serving as the fall meeting co-chairs – Jeff Blau and Rob Speyer, both tremendously civically oriented. Rob has done a lot to help us with our Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, and a lot of other key fronts. We work with Jeff all the time. These are two individuals who are real leaders in the industry, and partners in all we do. So, let’s thank Jeff and Rob for their great work.
