On Thursday, January 23, Cummings Properties officially welcomed five new members to what is known as its “30 Year Club.”

The informal group recognizes employees who have been with the commercial real estate firm for at least three decades. All 12 of the Club’s members gathered to celebrate the milestone anniversaries during a luncheon at Strega Prime, located at Cummings Properties’ TradeCenter 128 business campus.

The 30 Year Club has many Woburn connections – not surprising, considering that Cummings Properties has been based in Woburn since its founding in 1970.

The most senior staff member, George Holland, was introduced to the Company 38 years ago by the late Charles Gardner, who served for many years as executive director of Boys & Girls Club of Woburn. Gardner later brought Cummings Properties another dedicated employee – his son Kevin, who marked his 30-year anniversary last October.

Two additional members of the 30 Year Club, John DiRusso and Mike Gentile, grew up in Woburn, but currently live in Tewksbury and Stoneham, respectively.

According to Cummings Properties president and CEO Dennis Clarke, the luncheon will now be an annual event. He, along with Company founder Bill Cummings and some members of the firm’s executive team, joined the group at Strega Prime.

Clarke said, “We could not be happier that these talented and dedicated colleagues have chosen to spend, in most cases, their entire careers with Cummings Properties. To have them all together at once, sharing old stories and a lot of laughs, was truly a special experience.”
