The Charlotte Region Commercial Board of Realtors recognized four of its members and the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce with awards at its annual meeting on Dec. 4 at the Quail Hollow Club.
Ruth Roper, vice president of strategy and business development at Sealed Air Corp., was this year’s speaker, and shared her vision of Sealed Air’s future corporate headquarters in Charlotte. The Bubble Wrap manufacturer announced it would be relocating to the Queen City earlier this year.
This year’s award recipients were:
- The late David Allen, Realtor of the Year, for civic activity, business accomplishments and involvement with the National Association of Realtors and the N.C. Association of Realtors.
- Marty McLaughlin, of Park Commercial Real Estate, President’s Award for his work and contributions to CRCBR.
- Deane True, of Charlotte Metro Credit Union, Corporate Associate of the Year for the time, energy and resources she provided to CRCBR.
- Leah Bailey, of Trinity Partners, Committee Chair of the Year award for her work chairing the Membership Committee.
- Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Cornerstone Award, for working to improve the Charlotte economy and image, and more specifically the business environment of the commercial real estate industry. The award recognizes a non-member individual, institution or firm. This marked the first time that the award, which was first given in 1994, was given to an organization instead of an individual.
The CRCBR is a regional trade association that serves the commercial real estate interests in the 18-county Charlotte region, and is made up of more than 950 commercial real estate professionals.
