March 27, 2008 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. —Coldwell Banker Commercial® (CBC), a leading commercial real estate brokerage franchise system, recently recognized top company professionals and affiliate offices for their achievements in 2007 with the announcement of the full list of Global Commercial Award winners.
The awards were announced at a special recognition dinner held during the company's Global Commercial Conference (GCC), the annual event for CBC franchise owners, brokers and sales professionals, which took place late last month in Orlando, Fla.
"The professionals and companies we recognized embody the criteria of what it takes to be a success – drive, creativity, resourcefulness and the ability to overcome any obstacle," said Rick Davidson, president and COO of Coldwell Banker Commercial Affiliates. "Our 2007 award winners are a testament to the depth and breadth of talent that exists within the Coldwell Banker Commercial organization. We are proud to recognize each of them for their accomplishments and continued commitment to our company."
Among the honors that were bestowed at this year's ceremony was an inaugural award paying tribute to the memory of two of the Coldwell Banker Commercial organization's finest professionals, who both sadly passed away in 2007: The Halter Case Leadership Award, named for Caine Halter, owner of Coldwell Banker Commercial Caine in Greenville S.C., and Ray Case, owner of Coldwell Banker Commercial Atlantic International in Charleston S.C.
Halter and Case were renowned for their positive attitude, professional aptitude and exemplary leadership. This award will be presented annually to the one Coldwell Banker Commercial® professional who exemplifies all of these qualities. This year's winner was Ronald King of Coldwell Banker Commercial Almar Realty Group in Carlsbad, Calif.
