Congratulations, Jim Planey

Chicago Industrial

We’d like to congratulate Lee & Associates of Illinois founding principal Jim Planey, who was just awarded SIOR’s 2014 Richard G Levy President's award for his achievements both in and out of the business throughout his more than 40-year career. Snapped: Penny Levy, Jim and Elise Couston, SIOR’s 2014 Chicago chapter president. Some fun things we’ve gleaned about Jim over the years:

  • He likes visiting the Seven Natural Wonders of the World with his son Donald.
  • His first job, at age 11, was selling Christmas cards door-to-door in September.
  • His first car, at age 16, was a 1954 Ford he could almost afford with his pay from Montgomery Ward.

Congrats again, Jim!
