The Mehdi Heydari CCM of the Year Award is given annually and recognizes a CCM who demonstrates exceptional achievement, high professional standards, community involvement, and contributions to the construction management profession.
Also awarded were the CCM Champion Coins of Excellence. 2021 recipients included William Lacher, CCM, Best Management Practices Consulting, LLC; Jinous Samii-Saremi, CCM; and Timothy Gingrich, CCM, Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, Inc.
CCM Champions are selected based on individuals who volunteer to promote the CCM and Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT) credentials within the industry and to their organizations.
