Art Murray, of Lavista Associates, inc., was awarded the first “Michael P. Hickey Award” for 2010 to honor service providers who exemplify the spirit of IAMC. Award winners are stalwart ambassadors for IAMC, uphold the highest standards of ethics and integrity in their profession, strongly believe in giving back to their industry, work to make this world a better place and are mentors within the profession.
"Art Murray embodies the criteria established for the Michael P. Hickey Award," said Ron Starner, executive director of IAMC. "A much respected professional in our industry, Art has been a stalwart supporter of IAMC since its inception. He is a mentor to many and conducts himself and his business with honesty, integrity and good humor.”
Murray has served as an advisor and supporter of IAMC since the association was founded in 2002. He served on the IAMC board of directors from 2003-2007. He was the first chair of the Associate Advisory Committee and continues to serve as a committee member. Never having missed an IAMC Professional Forum - and often participating as a speaker or moderator - Murray also helped plan IAMC's first Webinar.
"I am honored to accept the Michael P. Hickey Award," said Murray, associate broker for Lavista Associates located in Norcross, Ga. "Mike was a friend and an inspiration. His memory continues to provide a standard to strive for."
