Marcum LLP Construction Practice Named Supplier of the Year by Associated Builders & Contractors’ Illinois Chapter

New York City, NY – Marcum LLP’s Construction Services Group was named 2018 Associate Supplier of the Year by the Illinois Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors, at a February 28 awards dinner. Marcum was recognized for the Firm’s volunteerism, event participation, and professional contributions to the chapter.

“I want to congratulate and commend our construction co-leaders in Illinois, Tim Crosby and Cary Drazner, who have done an outstanding job of expanding Marcum’s nationally recognized construction service capability into the Chicago region,” said Joseph Natarelli, Marcum’s national construction industry leader. “Our upcoming Midwest Construction Summit is a tribute to their accomplishments and the value they are bringing to Associated Builders & Contractors and the regional construction industry.” Mr. Drazner is current treasurer of ABC’s Illinois chapter.

The second annual Marcum Midwest Construction Summit will take place May 8 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare/Rosemont Hotel.  Presented in partnership with ABC, the conference will update construction contractors on the economic state of, and current issues facing, the construction industry. This year’s keynote speaker will again be Anirban Basu, Marcum’s chief construction economist and the leading economist in the construction industry.
