MAR Academy Graduation 4-2014 (2)

Wesley Cox, CCIM, Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury, MD was one of twenty graduates from the Maryland Association of REALTORS® (MAR) fourteenth annual Leadership Academy honored at ceremonies held in Annapolis. The MAR Leadership Academy was formed by REALTORS® who understand the important role they play in their community and the need to enhance the leadership skills, knowledge, and competencies of fellow REALTORS® interested in making a difference in their personal lives and in their communities.

Coastal Association of Realtors, one of sixteen local REALTOR® Boards/Associations in Maryland, is a strong advocate and recognizes the importance of this program to our association’s future. The MAR Leadership Academy offers an intensive curriculum designed to develop skills in leadership, communications, strategic planning, legislative and government affairs and community involvement.   Classes are conducted over 7 months and stress the value of professional and personal commitment to business, charitable and civic endeavors.

Wesley is a Senior Advisor with SVN-Miller, who specializes in the sale and leasing of commercial properties.  He represents buyers, sellers and tenants with dispositions, purchases, site searches, property evaluation, relocation and lease negotiations to help put his clients in a better position while avoiding mistakes and pitfalls throughout the process. When asked about the program Wesley commented, “This program has helped me continue my pursuit to be a successful leader within the community while gaining additional leadership tools that can be applied across diverse and growing organizations. The program had a focus on personal development that will not only benefit me in my daily life, but will also help me lead and advance the organizations I am associated with.”

“Today we honor you as future leaders in communities and within our REALTOR® organization,” 2014 President J. Russell Boyce said.   2009 NAR President Charles McMillan addressed the graduates and guests. McMillan in his Leadership From The Heart presentation, encouraged MAR Leadership Academy graduates to have passion and purpose as they set about leading the industry and others to even greater heights. McMillan added, “…that service to others was the noblest attribute a great leader could possess.”
