Scott Eggert Recognized as "10 Who Make a Difference"
Rochester, MN – July 7, 2016 – Royal Management & Development Inc. and ABODA are celebrating Broadway Plaza General Manager, Scott Eggert, for his recent “10 Who Make A Difference” award given to him by KTTC Television and United Way of Olmsted County. For 23 years, KTTC Television and United Way of Olmsted County have recognized ten individuals and groups who were nominated by community members and non-profit organizations for their impact in Southeastern Minnesota and Northern Iowa.
Eggert was honored for his volunteer work with the Kitchen for a Cause organization which also includes fellow area veterans Harry Kerr, Gary Pike, Teresa McCormack, and Jim Anderson. Together, their team designed and built a small food prep kitchen for the Zumbro Valley Health Center’s 7th Street office; creating a space for their Homeless Services Team to better provide for those experiencing homelessness or lacking appropriate resources to purchase food regularly.
“The Zumbro Valley Health Center offers remarkable housing services and resources to those who are in great need in our Rochester community,” says Scott Eggert. “I saw Kitchen for a Cause as an opportunity to assist local homeless veterans and support the Health Center’s mission.” The Kitchen for a Cause team began their project in spring of 2015 and took approximately one year to complete. In this time they raised money, designed the space, secured all materials and resources necessary to ensure a successful project and then executed their vision.
Donating time and resources is not new to Eggert who says he follows his grandfather’s rule of thumb to “be passionate” in all that he does, “I love Rochester, MN and I enjoy giving back to my community.” Eggert spends a significant portion of his time outside of work giving back to organizations and causes that move him; particularly those where he can help men and women who have served our country.
Broadway Plaza is Rochester, MN’s premier high-rise serviced apartment building developed and built by Royal Management & Development Inc. In April 2016, complete management of the property was entrusted to ABODA, one of the industry’s largest global housing providers.
“Scott’s personal dedication to his community and passion for helping and honoring veterans are what make him the strong leader that he is for the Broadway Plaza property and its team,” said Imad A. Baker, CCIM, Royal Management & Development Inc. president. Lee Curtis, CCHP, president of ABODA Global Housing Management added, “one of our core values as an organization is to serve our communities. We believe in the ‘doing well by doing good’ philanthropic and community involvement approach. Scott Eggert is the perfect example of our spirit of service.”
