Salt Lake City, UT – March 28, 2016 – CCIM has announced its winners for the Business Excellence Awards, granted each year in recognition of outstanding professionals leading and exemplifying the highest degree of business excellence in Utah’s commercial real estate industry. Donald I. Winder has been awarded the 2016 Business Excellence Award as Real Estate Attorney of the Year. Each finalist is recognized not only by their hard work with an incredible end product, but all of their work within their local communities. CCIM is a prestigious global commercial real estate professional organization, and the CCIM designation is conferred upon commercial real estate leaders who have a proven record of success in their field.
Recently, Mr. Winder worked laboriously to facilitate and close three large and complex commercial transactions — the purchase of the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres at Geneva, a shopping center in West Jordan, and an industrial park in Ogden. All three transactions, totaling $40 million, were closed within the past eighteen months. His hard work on these projects led in part to this honorable nomination.
Don’s colleague, Tim C. Simonsen, Executive Vice President for Coldwell Banker Commercial, stated that Don’s “vast knowledge of the complexities of land transactions, title protections, and fund transfer risk meant that both the buyer and seller were fully protected.”
Another colleague, Curtis A. Bullock, the CEO of Salt Lake Board of Realtors, said that Don, “along with other highly talented attorneys at Winder and Counsel, [are] among some of the finest in the legal profession.”
