Jonathan L. Mechanic, chairman of the real estate department at Fried Frank, was honored by The Metropolitan Museum of Art during its 24th annual Real Estate Council Benefit, for his commitment and generosity to cultural organizations. This year’s Benefit raised a record-breaking $2.58 million to support the museum’s educational mission.
“For the past four decades, Jon has distinguished himself as a true leader in our field,” said Met chair Daniel Brodsky, senior partner at the Brodsky Organization. “In addition to his many achievements in the area of real estate transactions, he also serves the community by generously donating his time to many philanthropic organizations.”
Mechanic said he was honored by the Real Estate Council’s “tremendous recognition.” He added, “I am committed to sustaining our cultural institutions and all that The Met offers to the public, and pledge to continue that tradition alongside my colleagues in the real estate industry.”
