Multiple colleagues suggest that Spencer Stouffer is most deserving of the Brendan McCarthy Award. They cite his extensive community service, an accomplished 26-year career and the leadership and mentoring qualities demonstrated both at work and within his personal life. They say he “walks the walk.”
Spencer recently joined the Board of Trustees for the James Madison University Foundation; he has served as a trustee for the Langley School since 2009 for which he was Facilities Chairman overseeing construction of Langley’s new middle school; along with his wife, Kit, co-chaired the 2013 March for Babies through the DC chapter of the March of Dimes; his family established “ The Stouffer Family” scholarship at his alma mater, JMU to make funds available to military veterans and their children; he is a founding Board Member for the George Mason University Masters in Real Estate Program; he serves on the Lombardi Cancer Center Gala Committee; and he has been a NAIOP Board Member since 2006.
Spencer is currently the Vice Chairman at Cushman & Wakefield where he leads a team of brokers responsible for a significant portion of the firm’s Northern Virginia leasing activities. A true leader, Spencer takes mentorship very seriously taking a selfless team approach. The five senior brokers on his team have been together for more than eight years, a testament to his sense of fairness and trust among his colleagues. Spencer has won CREBA’s top leasing production award for Northern Virginia a record four times and has been in the top 10 consistently since 1998. He successfully marketed some of the region’s most iconic buildings, most recently ExxonMobil’s one million square foot facility at Reston Town Center. He has been selected by Cushman & Wakefield to serve as its National Practice Leader to export his best practices to leasing brokers across the country. Like Brendan McCarthy, Spencer Stouffer is a successful broker, charitable citizen, and respected leader and mentor.
