The institute awarded Landreneau with the Susan J. Groeneveld Visionary Award in 2006.
“As we navigate a post pandemic market, the CCIM professional is an integral partner for their clients and to the rebounding of our communities. Searching for a key leadership role while providing support and service to CCIMs, designation candidates, and chapters remains a priority for this organization. I am excited to lend my experience and make things happen,” said Landreneau.
