CCIM Feature

Education Focus

While the CCIM Institute is recognized as one of the preeminent commercial real estate networks in the world, “education is the true foundation of our organization,” says 2015 Institute President Mark Macek, CCIM, president and owner of Macek Companies, in Great Falls, Mont.

In the new year, Macek intends to focus much of the Institute’s energy on expanding its new blended learning educational delivery model across the entire curriculum while continuing to fine-tune the format. “The goal of our educational platform is to provide focused, relevant, and timely education,” he says. “What makes CCIM’s education so unique and unmatched in the industry is that it is taught by some of the best practitioners in the commercial real estate business.”

With more than 25 years of experience in commercial real estate brokerage, property management, and development, Macek also plans to broaden the CCIM brand. “One of my goals is to enhance CCIM’s image in the commercial real estate industry to ensure our clients understand the added value of working with a CCIM designee,” he says. “Increasing awareness of our brand and the value it represents will have a significant impact on the success of our members.”

As a longtime member of CCIM’s Board of Directors as well as a member of the Strategic Planning Committee, Member Services Committee, and Legislative Affairs Subcommittee, Macek’s keen understanding of the Institute will guide the organization in its quest to provide improved services for members. “Our mission is to elevate our members to the highest levels of success in our profession,” he says. “It is a privilege to serve our members in CCIM’s ongoing efforts to educate, designate, and support the best commercial real estate practitioners in the world.”
