Swire Properties Inc, one of South Florida’s leading international developers of real estate, is pleased to announce that Miami’s Mayor Tomás Regalado proclaimed Jan. 8 as “Megan Kelly Day” in recognition of executive vice president of Swire Properties’ Megan Kelly’s 25 years of community service to the city of Miami. Kelly serves on the boards of Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, Dade Heritage Trust, Miami River Commission and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. She is actively involved in a number of Miami Dade County committees and is a known figure in public activism. The proclamation was presented by Mayor Regalado and Commission Chair Willy Gort on Jan. 8.
“It was a privilege to attend the City Commission’s meeting to support Miami’s acknowledgement of Megan’s contribution to our great city through her extensive civic involvement,” said Stephen Owens, president of Swire Properties Inc. “I am proud of the work she accomplished during her 25 years at Swire Properties. We salute her continued involvement in the City of Miami and her philanthropic efforts,” he said.
“It is an honor to be presented with such a prestigious accolade. I am appreciative of Swire Properties’ support during the last 25 years; their encouragement to work on a variety of community-related efforts, instrumental to our city’s growth, is personally gratifying. Miami’s relevance on the world stage is widely recognized by its increase in trade, business, art and education, making it an international powerhouse bar none. I look forward to many years of continued service to Miami,” said Kelly.
Megan Kelly retired from Swire Properties in November of 2014 after 25 years of service to the company. Her civic involvement was instrumental in the international developer’s role in Miami.
