Mr King started his real estate career in 1976 and 22 years later having held a number of senior roles in several companies joined Harcourts Grenadier in 1998. Since then, he has been an integral part of the Senior Management Team.
Harcourts New Zealand Managing Director Bryan Thomson says the honour is thoroughly deserved.
“Mr King has given exceptional service to both REINZ and the wider real estate industry for a number of years. He is a much loved and highly regarded member of the Harcourts family”, he says.
With over 44 years of experience Mr King has served his profession and his colleagues with leadership and commitment. He has shown dedication to continuous improvement having sat on the local REINZ committee for several years before it was disbanded in 2009 and has also dedicated his time as a Director of the Real Estate Network for the past 10 years.
His nomination for Fellowship was put forward by a Life Member of REINZ and unanimously supported by some of Christchurch’s most respected names in the real estate industry.
In addition to his hands-on management roles he has been a driving force behind the hugely successful Grenadier Charity Golf Day which has raised over $300,000 for Canterbury charities who work with troubled youth.
CEO of Harcourts Grenadier, Robert McCormack says, “Cedric has contributed greatly to the Real Estate Industry throughout his career and he is extremely deserving of this accolade.” Managing Director, Andy Freeman, goes on to say, “We are very proud of Cedric’s achievement. He is a fountain of knowledge and expertise and we are fortunate to have him in our Management Team.”
