Markward Group/Caracor LLC Development
For 30 years, Markward has operated the development and brokerage arms of both companies.
He is global president of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors, including nine years on the global board. “It is the preeminent commercial real estate organization worldwide,” he said, “and exposed me to all things real estate and finance, which in turn positioned us to help our clients with their real estate decisions.”
Markward said he has learned to “never stop and never give up. Persistence and relationships win the day. We can make a positive impact on others’ lives by staying diligent and persistent.”
In his spare time, he plays golf “because it drives you crazy and you come back for more to try to do it better. Also, I like to sit on boards (for profit and nonprofit) and stay involved in other companies to see the way the economy works on different industries.”
