CCIM Feature

Brand Expansion

One of my key goals this year is to promote the CCIM designation worldwide and the value CCIMs bring to the marketplace. Our organization is made up of a diverse group of commercial real estate professionals who reflect multiple disciplines within the industry, including leasing, appraisal, commercial brokerage, investments, property management, lending/mortgage banking, legal, and development. In fact, more than 40 percent of our members are from disciplines outside the traditional brokerage arena.

The 154 new designees who earned the pin in April illustrate this diversity. These professionals come from all facets of the industry and represent major corporate real estate organizations, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Walmart, Behringer Harvard REIT I, UBS, USAA, McDonald’s, and NorthMarq Capital, among others. This range of professional affiliations among our newest designees highlights the value of CCIM’s network.

Earlier this year, CCIM produced a series of corporate videos that capture the essence of who we are and the value we bring to the marketplace. These videos are a powerful marketing tool that can be shared with clients, prospects, and colleagues. Visit CCIM.com to view the first of these videos and watch for more to be released soon.

CCIMs also have an opportunity to further leverage our global network at the International Council of Shopping Centers’ RECon 2013, May 20–22, in Las Vegas. Visit CCIM in the Leasing Mall.

With the economy still in recovery mode, the education and relationships available through CCIM are vital to success. Remember, CCIM is your opportunity to excel — make the most of it.

Sincerely,

Wayne D’Amico, CCIM

2013 CCIM Institute President
