Lee & Associates CEO, Jeffrey Rinkov, SIOR, has been selected as an honoree in the GlobeSt.com/Real Estate Forum Magazine 2021 edition of Best Bosses.

Rinkov practices servant leadership. As the CEO of Lee & Associates, Rinkov oversees 65 offices and leads recruitment, expansion, initiatives and company culture. He is known for strong communication with all employees, from his fellow leaders at the firm to individual brokers and support staff. He listens to all ideas, takes responsibility and gives credit when due.“The true leader is one who is followed [they have] the best interest [of the people] and of the organization in mind, and not their own. That is Jeff,” says one employee about Rinkov. Another says, “He is a beacon of our company culture, and his leadership style allows every person he works with to feel engaged and appreciated. I’ve never met another CEO that encourages every member of the company, not just the leadership or his direct team to call him with any problem or opportunity that arises.”

This year, he continued to connect with employees by launching a Strava group for virtual health challenges to keep the team moving and motivated through the pandemic.
