Kendall was among 157 individuals who earned commercial real estate’s global standard for professional achievement.

Chicago (October 14th, 2022) – David Kendall, Managing Director of SVN | Safe Haven Advisors and founding member of SVN Marinas, recently 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, IL.

Kendall was among the 157 commercial real estate professionals who earned the designation by passing the CCIM Institute’s comprehensive examination, the capstone element in the designation process. This new group of CCIM designees hails from 35 U.S. states, as well as Canada and Mexico.

“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 anywhere for more than half a century with good reason. People 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.
