16 Florida CCIM Chapter Members Earn Coveted Designation

A number of members of the Florida CCIM Chapter have been awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member designation by CCIM Institute. The designation was awarded during a pinning ceremony during CCIM Institute’s recent Midyear Governance Meetings at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa.

The chapter members were among more than 150 designees honored by CCIM Institute and their local chapter members at the April event. The new CCIMs have varying years of experience and work in all aspects of the commercial real estate profession. They hail from 37 states and Canada.

“It was amazing to see the kind of presence that Florida brought to the Mid-year meetings,” shares Adam Palmer, 2018 Florida CCIM Chapter President. “Never before have we been able to produce this many new designees in a single sitting. It is not only a testament to the dedication that these individuals have put into their careers but also the rapidly growing interest in the designation itself,” adds Palmer, CCIM, Principal & Managing Director at LandQwest Commercial Real Estate Services.
