CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon holds service to the community as his company’s highest charge, and the Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) recently honored him for that dedication. Goodmon received the CED’s Community Impact Award at the organization’s 20th Annual Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards banquet on Wednesday, June 21, 2006. The event took place at American Tobacco’s Bay 7 in downtown Durham

The CED uses its Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards to celebrate North Carolina’s best and brightest entrepreneurs.

The Community Impact Award honors an individual or organization that “most notably recognizes that the entrepreneurial spirit is not limited to innovative business concepts.” Community Impact Award winners “have made a substantial impact on the overall community through service, donations, or charitable work.”

“Jim Goodmon has had a profound impact on the Triangle as an executive, board member and philanthropist,” read the award citation. “Goodmon has served as CEO of Capitol Broadcasting since 1979, providing visionary leadership that has allowed the company to operate wholly owned subsidiaries across North and South Carolina. Yet, Goodmon’s biggest impact may be felt in the community. He has served on more than 20 non-profit boards throughout the years and is steadfast in his commitment to improving quality of life in the Triangle. Goodmon has been instrumental in the redevelopment of downtown Durham and the growth of the American Tobacco Historic District, a project that is renovating more than one million square feet of real estate property each year.”
