Lincoln Property Company’s CEO of their residential division, Tim Byrne, has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2021. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual award recognizing the Top CEOs, which highlights top leaders that employees love working for in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among chief executives recognized by employees in the U.S., Byrne received an impressive approval rating of 92%, based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Lincoln Property Company employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
Tim Byrne joined Lincoln Property Company as President in 1984. Now as CEO of Lincoln’s residential division, Byrne has grown the multifamily portfolio to an impressive 210,000 units -157,000 third-party managed apartment units and 53,000 Lincoln-owned apartments, 37,000 of which are military family homes.
“I am humbled and think our employees must have been voting for Mack Pogue," said Tim Byrne, CEO, Residential for Lincoln Property Company. "At Lincoln, our focus remains on our people – who as essential workers had to maneuver remote leasing, maintenance, and assistance for residents who were confined to their apartments for over a year. Lincoln has a strong culture and I view this recognition as a reflection of the culture we have built over decades. I’m honored to receive this acknowledgment from Glassdoor and from the Lincoln team.”
“Over the past year, company leaders around the world faced unprecedented challenges to support employees during the COVID-19 crisis. Now, the employees have spoken and it’s clear that these CEOs excelled and found new ways to support their people when the world of work flipped upside down,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. “Through a challenging year, it’s inspiring to see Top CEOs who, according to their employees, adapted to change, redefined visions, and led with transparency while putting the health and safety of employees first. I extend my sincerest congratulations to this year’s Employees’ Choice Award winners.”
