McMahon’s Public House was the site of CPEX Real Estate’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast.

The morning event, held on Friday, March 16 at 8 a.m. was hosted by CPEX Managing Partners Brian Leary and Timothy King as CPEX honored three Irish-American community and industry leaders who have made a significant impact — State Senator Marty Golden, TD Bank Market President Peter Meyer and Saint Francis College Alumni Relations Director Dennis McDermott.

“Saint Patrick’s Day is an important time to reflect on the sacrifices and contributions our Irish ancestors made to build a better life here in New York and America – quite literally, from our bridges to the ships at the Brooklyn Navy Yard,” said King.

According to CPEX, over the last 15 years, Golden has authored over 222 laws spurring economic development and improving public safety. He previously served for 10 years and received numerous awards with the New York City Police Department.

Meyer, who oversees the New York market for TD Bank, was honored for having played a key role in TD Bank’s expansion throughout the New York marketplace.

“He has been actively involved on the boards of several nonprofit and civic organizations in New York City, including the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, where he is the chairman emeritus,” CPEX wrote in a statement.

McDermott has spent nearly 20 years as the director of alumni relations at Saint Francis, where he also finished his collegiate basketball career as the leading scorer in school history.

“He has spearheaded major gifts from alumni to grow the presence of Saint Francis College in Downtown Brooklyn and serve as a pillar of the community,” CPEX noted.

Honoring local leaders is important for CPEX, which offers a full range of transactional services for both real estate and business owners.

“For us, it’s also an opportunity to recognize what our contemporary Irish-Americans are doing to give back to our communities,” added Leary. “Marty, Peter and Dennis each epitomize that Irish spirit.”

McMahon’s is located at 39 Fifth Avenue.
