Today, CoStar Group’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Andy Florance, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Executive of the Year – Real Estate category in The 20th Annual International Business Awards®. He was also honored with a Silver Stevie® Award in the Best Entrepreneur – Real Estate category.

Florance was recognized for his exceptional achievements in the global real estate sector, where despite the macroeconomic headwinds seen in recent years, he has overseen the continued growth of the business he founded in 1987. He has led CoStar Group, a leading global provider of online real estate marketplaces, information, analytics, and data-driven news in the commercial and residential property markets, as it has grown into a team of over 5,600 employees in 15 countries.

The company’s rapid growth shows no sign of stopping, largely due to its introduction of innovative new products and continued dominance in real estate data and analytics. CoStar Group was selected for inclusion in the S&P 500, a premier benchmark of the US equities market, and the NASDAQ 100 in recognition of its robust financial performance and leadership in technology and real estate under Florance.

Their hard work and dedication to innovation is what drives our company’s growth.
