Mark Halperin receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Lambda Alpha
MEMPHIS, Tenn., October 18, 2023 – Boyle Investment Company (Boyle) is pleased to announce that Executive Vice President and COO Mark Halperin is the 2023 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Memphis chapter of Lambda Alpha International. Boyle has two previous Lambda Alpha Lifetime Achievement Award recipients: J. Bayard Boyle, Sr. (1994), who founded the company in 1933 along with his two brothers, and Russell E. Bloodworth, Jr. (2010), Executive Vice President, who has been with Boyle for 55 years.
Halperin joined Boyle in 1973 after graduating from the University of Tennessee and is celebrating his 50th anniversary with the company this year. As Boyle celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2023, Halperin leads the company’s commercial sales and leasing team, which has grown considerably and has never been stronger. Today, the team is comprised of 27 highly talented professionals with years of experience in development, leasing, property management, maintenance and space planning.
“I am humbled and honored to receive this award from Lambda Alpha,” says Halperin, who attributes his accomplishments in commercial real estate to the efforts of the Boyle commercial sales and leasing team, which operates 4 million square feet of office and retail space in the greater Memphis area. “We have always had a great team,” says Halperin, “but the group we have assembled after acquiring four additional ‘Class A’ office buildings in 2020 and hiring nine of the previous building owner’s employees is the most experienced we have ever had. We already had a tremendous group, and the new employees complement the skills of those already on our existing team.”
Halperin was hired by Boyle’s Co-Chairman Henry Morgan, Sr. in 1973. “Mark has played a large part in the development and leasing of approximately 12 million square feet of commercial and office space,” says Morgan. “I don’t think our company would be as successful if we hadn’t had Mark with us over this long period of time. Mark and I have had a lot of fun in the process of doing deals together, and I congratulate him in winning this Lambda Alpha Lifetime Achievement Award, which is greatly deserved.”
Founded in 1933, Boyle Investment Company is one of the oldest real estate development, management, sales and leasing firms in Memphis and is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. Even before the company was founded by Bayard Boyle, Sr., his father, Edward Boyle, developed the iconic Belvedere Boulevard in Midtown Memphis in 1907. The Boyle and Morgan families trace their origins back to John Overton, one of the founders of the City of Memphis. Boyle is known in Memphis for developing complex mixed-use projects such as Ridgeway Center, Humphreys Center, and Schilling Farms in Collierville, as well as for its high-end residential communities such as River Oaks and Spring Creek Ranch. In 2001, Boyle opened a Nashville office, which has grown from two principals to 32 employees and is actively developing major large-scale, mixed-use projects including Capitol View, Berry Farms, Meridian Cool Springs, McEwen Northside and CityPark. Boyle’s real estate portfolio consists of more than eight million square feet of commercial space, multiple high-end residential communities, multi-family communities and extensive land holdings.
