SAN FRANCISCO-William Agnello, senior vice president of workplace resources and executive officer for Sun Microsystems, and Robert Cavigli, president of HDR Architecture, have been named the 2001 Real Estate Executives of the Year by the Northern California and Silicon Valley Chapters of NACORE International and the San Francisco/Silicon Valley Chapter of the IDRC, which will merge its 7,000 members next year under the name CoreNet.

The two individuals will be honored at the Fourth Annual Real Estate Executive of the Year Awards dinner to be held Wed., Nov. 28, 2001, at the Sheraton Palace in San Francisco. Begun by NACORE in 1998, the event attracts more than 250 corporate real estate executives from throughout Northern California.

Looking at categories such as significant projects, value added services, professional accomplishments and community service, a panel of corporate real estate professionals elected Agnello and Cavigli for the award from a list of nominees from throughout the region.” Bill and Bob are visionaries and widely respected throughout our profession,” said Joan Price, co-chair of the San Francisco/Silicon Valley Chapter of the IDRC.

Agnello is responsible for developing and implementing high-performance global workplace strategies for Sun. He leads a team of employees worldwide and has been a leader in alternative officing, such as non-territorial hoteling. Agnello’s recent projects include the conversion of the Agnews site and redevelopment of the company’s one million-square-foot Santa Clara campus, which met several company goals related to environmental consciousness.

Cavigli is a 30-year veteran of the architecture industry responsible for establishing and guiding the implementation of HDR’s business strategy, and focusing its resources on maximizing technical expertise in highly sophisticated markets. Working from the firm’s Los Altos, CA office, Cavigli has been instrumental in the development of HDR’s Project Delivery Service concept, which provides assistance to clients in areas of financing, real estate, project management and program management.
