Dan Naylor, sales associate with Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services, Wilkes-Barre, has been awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation by the CCIM Institute. The designation was awarded during the Institute’s spring business meetings April 25 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Naylor was among the 141 commercial real estate professionals from 34 states, Canada, and Mexico who earned the designation by passing the Institute’s Comprehensive Examination, the final element in the designation process.

“We’re very proud of Dan and congratulate him on earning his CCIM designation,” said Mericle President Robert K. Mericle. “Becoming a CCIM is one of the highest honors someone in our industry can attain.”

The CCIM designation is awarded to commercial real estate professionals upon successful completion of an advanced analytical curriculum and presentation of a portfolio of qualifying industry experience. The curriculum addresses financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis and investment analysis – the cornerstones of commercial investment real estate.
