McCoy Inducted into Stanford Hall of Fame
At two events in late 2013, Bowen H. ‘Buzz’ McCoy, CRE, president, Buzz McCoy Associates, Inc., Los Angeles, was inducted into the Stanford Real Estate Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed by the SPIRE (Stanford Professionals in Real Estate) alumni group, which recognizes “pioneers” in the real estate industry whose impact and legacy have brought acclaim to them and the university. Criteria for the award include: sustained positive impact upon the broadly defined world of real estate; universal recognition as an icon of the industry; demonstrable contributions to the Stanford community as a whole; consistently bestowing distinction upon themselves, their companies and Stanford University by maintaining a standard of excellence and achievement; among others. In his career, McCoy was a general partner of Morgan Stanley where he developed and ran the commercial real estate finance units for many years. In 2000, National Real Estate Investor named him a “20th Century Icon” in commercial real estate for his work integrating commercial real estate finance into the capital market system. As a Stanford graduate, McCoy served in many roles there, including as Executive-in-Residence and as president of the Stanford Alumni Association. In 1989, the university honored him with its Golden Spike award. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in economics at Stanford and a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard. McCoy was honored at Stanford in October, and again in Los Angeles in November.
