Brendan O’D Gill, development/acquisition associate with MacKenzie Development Company, LLC, was recently awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation by the CCIM Institute, one of the leading commercial real estate associations in the world and an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
To earn the designation, Gill successfully completed a graduate-level education curriculum which included 200 classroom hours in investment, financial and market analysis, provided a presentation of qualifying industry experience, and passed the Institute’s Comprehensive Examination held in Chicago.
Gill was among 199 commercial real estate professionals nationwide who earned the designation in August and joins over 15,000 alumni from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Asia and Europe who have completed the program since it was founded in 1969. Of the estimated 125,000 commercial real estate practitioners in North America, less than 10,000 currently hold the coveted CCIM designation.
“We are proud of Brendan’s CCIM designation. His accreditation adds another facet to our multi-disciplined expertise and enhances our ability to provide our clients with dynamic strategies and creative solutions,” said Bob Aumiller, Executive Vice President of the MacKenzie Companies.
As a CCIM, Gill is a recognized expert in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis and can market properties for sale or lease through CCIMNet, a national commercial property exchange.
