CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon recently received top honors from the Triangle Commercial Real Estate Women (TCREW).  The organization presented Goodmon with its Impact Award at a ceremony on Thursday, April 26, 2007 at Prestonwood Country Club.

TCREW bestows the Impact Award on an individual who has made a significant contribution to, or has had a significant positive influence on, the Triangle’s commercial real estate industry.  Former winners include Willie York, Claude McKinney, Vernon Malone & last year’s recipient Greg Hatem.

“He works hard to make his company and the community a better place,” reads the citation.  “The community contributed to his and his company’s success, and giving back is a high priority for Jim Goodmon.”

The 2007 Impact Award honored Goodmon for his influence on the landscape of downtown Durham.  “With the development or the American Tobacco project, downtown Durham has been given a new life and a new attitude.”

More from the Award Citation:
“His [Jim Goodmon’s] vision for the Triangle and his accomplishments throughout the market have driven much economic benefit, particularly to the commercial real estate arena.  Examples include the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, Diamond View I, and the public private partnership in the redevelopment of the American Tobacco Historic District.  He is an inspirational leader in all aspects of his life and helps make the Triangle one of the top places to live and work.”

Established in 1996, Triangle CREW is part of the international CREW network.  One of  CREW’s primary objectives is to provide a communication network among women in the field of commercial real estate

CBC is no stranger to the TCREW Champion Awards.  Last year CBC won the award for Best Mixed Use Development for its work on American Tobacco in downtown Durham.  American Tobacco also won an award for Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart & Stewart of Atlanta.  They received the award for Most Creative Land Use for their work on the renovation project.
