One of the largest real estate companies in Australia L.J Hooker has received the Leadership in Corporate Giving Award as part of the fourth annual “Thank You” Day celebrations by Research Australia.

The award, one of seven announced recently at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, was presented to Warren McCarthy, Managing Director and CEO of L.J. Hooker at a black tie ceremony.
