Cayman based real estate entrepreneur, Jeremy Hurst, has been honoured by international residential and luxury real estate network, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE), for his outstanding contribution to their global development strategies.
Hurst, the Broker/Owner of Cayman’s IRG – International Realty Group, was presented with the network’s prestigious Global Leadership Award by Board Chairman Diane M. Ramirez and President/CEO, Paul Boomsma. The presentation was made as part of the network’s annual Global Symposium, which was intended to be held in Dubai, but this year has been delivered virtually due to restrictions caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The two-day event offered top real estate professionals affiliated with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) the opportunity to discuss trends in the international real estate market. Topics included technological innovation in real estate, new development marketing, branding and public relations strategies, insights on the luxury segment, and more. Participants also had the opportunity to network with one another virtually in small groups, a key component of LeadingRE events adapted to fit today’s environment.
This year marks the fourth time formal awards were presented in the event’s 13-year history.
“While we regret that we could not be together in person to celebrate our winners, the significance of these awards is as impressive as ever. It is an honor for us to recognize these companies and individuals who are leaders not only in their local markets, but also within our global real estate community,” said LeadingRE President/CEO Paul Boomsma.
Mr. Hurst was presented the Global Leadership Award in recognition of his generosity of time and commitment in supporting Leading Real Estate Companies of the World’s global growth.
“Jeremy has been a tremendous supporter of our network since IRG joined LeadingRE in 2003. His leadership as Chairman of our Global Advisory Board and as a member of our Board of Directors has been instrumental in our global growth, and we are thrilled to recognize his many contributions with the Global Leadership Award.”
