More than 250 Jack Conway agents, managers and staff gathered in the festive ballroom of the Plymouth Radisson Hotel for the annual Conway Country Thanksgiving breakfast.
The blockbuster surprise of the event was a presentation by founder Jack Conway’s wife Patti Conway, during which she transferred 100% ownership of the 56-year-old real estate company to her daughter, Carol Conway Bulman, the firm’s CEO since December of 2010.
Taking the microphone, Mrs. Conway said, “Carol, your father was so proud of your achievements as CEO during these last few turbulent years in our industry. As you know, I’m not fond of public speaking, but I promised your dad that I would make this presentation to you publicly.”
As Conway handed her daughter a stock certificate transferring full ownership of the Jack Conway Real Estate Company, the crowd erupted with a standing ovation.
Bulman pledged to honor her father’s legacy and to keep the organization new, expanding, and customer-driven to meet the needs of present and future homeowners.
“I ask you all to join me in preserving the phenomenal work of art that Jack Conway created and nurtured for so many years,” said Bulman. “Our company has a solid foundation, carved by a master sculptor, and it’s our job now to build upon it, while ensuring that it remains steady and forever firm.”
The Conway Thanksgiving breakfast also included an address from John Yazwinksi, president and CEO of Father Bill’s & MainSpring, and the presentation of 40 Conway “Spirit Awards” to agents in offices from Boston to Cape Cod.
