MEB - Melanie Morrison, Libby Ekre, Jodi Sheahan

MEB Founders Honored by Gov. Brewer For Entrepreneurial Excellence and Commitment

Three Arizona women were the first to be named “Women of Achievement” by Gov. Jan Brewer recently. The proclamation, recognizing Melanie Morrison, Libby Ekre, and Jodi Sheahan of MEB Management Services, introduced Arizona’s “Women of Achievement” month celebrated in September.

The three business partners are the first women to ever be honored with this award.

The proclamation was presented by the Governor’s Office. Mary Murphy, the Community Liaison for Children, Youth and Families, praised the three owners of MEB Services for their “integrity, entrepreneurial spirit, strong character, originality, and business acumen. They are worthy role models who inspire other women to strive for similar achievements.”

The three women were surprised at receiving the honor during an MEB event held this week. “I really don’t know what to say except I am grateful and what an honor,” Ekre said.

Added Sheahan: “Really, we are standing here today being honored because of you … our MEB family and our families. Thank you all for what you do for our company.”

Melanie Morrison was described in comments as “a risk taker as long as it is with integrity.” These three women are the co-owners of MEB Management Services which manages multi-family communities around Arizona.

“Jodi, Libby and Melanie have given so much, not only to the MEB associates but also to so many charities and organizations throughout the years,” said Allen Bowman, President of MEB’s Commercial Division.

Each woman was given a copy of the proclamation and every woman at the event was given a special gift.

Mark Schilling, Sr. VP of Operations of MEB Management Services said, “This is a huge honor and reflects the leadership and love that Melanie, Libby and Jodi constantly practice.”

Morrison has more than 30 years experience in all aspects of real estate management. She has held previous positions with the Institute of Real Estate Management and Arizona Multihousing Association, and was the past chair of the Tucson’s Metropolitan Housing Commission.

Ekre brings more than 25 years experience in the multi-family, extended stay hotel management and property renovation; she has served as past President of the Phoenix Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management and as a former member of the Arizona Multihousing Association Board.

Sheahan has become highly respected as an industry leader known for her expertise in property management operations, training and employee education programs over the past 26 years, and has previously served as AMA Chairman of the Board.
