CHICAGO, November 10, 2022 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that four brokers at the commercial real estate services firm have received the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation from CCIM Institute. The designation was awarded during this year’s fall CCIM Comprehensive Exam testing session, which was held in Chicago.
This year’s recipients Michael “Mike” Pittman II, director, Houston, Texas; Joe Zurek, director, San Diego; Ron Emerson, vice president, Vancouver, Canada; and Scott Dunwoody, director, St. Louis, Missouri; earned the designation by passing the CCIM Institute’s comprehensive examination, the capstone element in the designation process.
“For those who earn the CCIM designation, like this newest crop of designees, it is a career-defining moment,” says Leslie G. Callahan III, CCIM, 2022 global president of CCIM Institute. “CCIM designees have remained synonymous with the most advanced commercial real estate investment specialists for more than half a century with good reason. Individuals and corporate clients rely on CCIMs to minimize risk, maximize ROI, and optimize the value of real estate.”
To earn the CCIM designation, commercial real estate professionals must complete more than 160 hours of case-study-driven education covering topics such as interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate. Candidates must also compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive examination.
