SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARDS
DAVID T. GOCKEL
As president and CEO of Langan, a company with 1,100 employees and 30 offices, David T. Gockel has been integral
in leading the firm’s female representation to 34%—above the national average of 28%. That number is only
increasing with women representing 36% of all new hires. He has also worked to place women in leadership positions, with women at the helm of two Southern California offices and the Miami office, and there are female group
leaders in a third of the firm’s offices.
NorthStar Owners Representation
When Ron Street founded NorthStar Owners Representation in 1999, he made an effort to hire and reserve positions for women. Today, 70% of the firm’s project managers are women; 79% of the total staff are women or
minorities; and two of the firm’s three principals are women, Anne McFadden and Rosella Harvey. The diversity is
not to meet the status quo, but rather because Street sees the value in diversity and female leadership.
