Salt Lake City, UT–June 1, 2022–The Utah Chapter of CCIM honored more than 40 finalists in 15 award categories at its 2022 Excellence Awards event. Held at the Grand America Hotel on Saturday, May 14th, the annual awards program honored professionals within Utah’s commercial real estate industry who exemplify the highest degree of business excellence, as well as highlighted some of the year’s most notable projects and transactions. The theme at this year’s event was “Ascending to New Heights.”

Recipients for the top sale and lease transactions of the year were awarded in each commercial property type, as were the top producers for each segment in the industry. This year’s Hall of Fame recipient was Clark Ivory, the CEO of Ivory Homes—Utah’s number one residential builder for the past 34 years. In addition, four scholarships—funded jointly by Price Real Estate and the Utah CCIM Chapter—were awarded to students at the University of Utah.

“It was such a pleasure to meet together as an industry and recognize the phenomenal efforts of Utah’s commercial real estate community,” commented Wes Christensen, Utah CCIM Excellence Awards Event Chair and Chapter President. “Our professionals not only kept the industry moving forward, but together they truly ascended new heights during the most disruptive time in most of our careers. We appreciate all our sponsors and supporters who made this event possible and want to congratulate all those who were recognized with awards after two incredibly challenging years.”
