IBEX’s Big Holiday Bash
IBEX’s Big Holiday Bash
Everybody should have fun and enjoy themselves, whether it’s good times or bad, IBEX Construction chair Andy Frankl told us last night during the firm’s holiday party at the AIA Center for Architecture in Manhattan. And what a party Ibex threw—executives from all phases of the construction and design industry packed three floors. Yes, that’s a person doing a handstand in the background, though not an architect after too much egg nog (IBEX hired entertainers).

Andy Frankl, TSC Design’s Lena Hamlin, and AIA New York Chapter exec director Rick Bell welcome incoming AIA New York president and Mancini Duffy chair Anthony Schirripa (second from right). The association held its 2009 Board Inaugural earlier in the night.

IBEX VP Bill Brody with Greg Nowell of Heery International’s Philly office. Greg just finished an intensive surfing season in New Jersey, and is now doing a series on program management along the East Coast. What, no Polar Bear Club for you, Greg?

Lawrence Goldberg; Givaudan Fragrances’ Kathy Cameron; self-proclaimed FOA (Friend of Andy) Rich Cameron; attorney Arnold Reiter and wife Sherie Reiter. Arnold and Sherie recently went to Scottsdale and Beverley Hills, and they’re heading to Latin America in February. Arnold is Andy’s lawyer, so we commented that Andy must not give him enough work if he gets to travel that much.Au contraire: he once had a business call with Andy while climbing to the peak of Arizona’s Camelback Mountain.

Vanguard Construction’s Jose Arevalo; architect Hans Roegele; Calori & Vanden-Eynden’s David Vanden-Eynden and Chris Calori; and architect Lance Jay Brown. David tells us he’s trying to keep busy, but knows it’s slow in the industry when he eats too much during the holidays. Will stepping on a scale in January be a market indicator?

Innoeventi’s Faviola Mercado; Steven Kratchman Architect’s Tom Palumbo; Janet Palumbo; and Callison’s Mario Puerta. Mario tells us that Callison collaborated with Victoria’s Secret for the design of its New York City flagship store on 58th and Lex, which opened last week. We forgot to ask him if he met the ribbon-cutting Heidi Klum.
