NAI Carolantic Realty congratulates their Vice President & Marketing Director, Kerry Saunders, who was recently chosen to be the recipient of the Triangle CREW Impact Award. As TCREW's highest honor, the award is presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution to, or who has had a significant positive influence on the Triangle's commercial real estate industry. The award was presented at the Triangle Commercial Real Estate Women's (TCREW) Annual Champion Awards luncheon held on May 1st. Over 350 business leaders attended the event held at the Embassy Suites in Cary, North Carolina.

In an article written by Triangle Business Journal reporter Mandy Jones-Hoyle she indicated Kerry has touched on and played an integral role in the growth and development of almost every association and organization affiliated with the commercial real estate industry. She has also been the driving force behind NAI Carolantic's Annual Triangle Commercial Real Estate Conference which has grown to more than 1,700 attendees and is held at the PNC Arena every January.

"Kerry is a crucial member of our NAI Carolantic team. She has an incredible work ethic, tremendous integrity and is very professional in all that she does for our firm. She has also made significant contributions to NAI Global serving on the Leadership Board of the NAI Global Women's Alliance and was previously the NAI Global Vice Chair of the Marketing Council. She is highly regarded among other commercial real estate professionals and business leaders throughout the Triangle and North Carolina. Frankly, without her, this company wouldn't be what it is today," said Chairman Steve Stroud.
