[1]Charlie King croppedContinuing CORFAC’s 25th Anniversary celebration, our occasional feature on a past president honors Charles B. King, Jr. SIOR of King Industrial Realty, Inc./CORFAC International in Atlanta, Georgia, which he founded in 1980. He served as CORFAC’s President in 1999.

Charlie was honored recently with the first-ever Al McConkey, Jr. Award, in memory of CORFAC’s first president, for his leadership and ongoing dedication to CORFAC International. When asked what CORFAC means to him, King said the organization has had a three-fold impact — on his Client Focus, on King Industrial Realty, and on Charlie King.

  1. As for client focus, CORFAC means a network of trusted advisors. It means personal attention from an experienced broker. That translates to repeat business and great results for the client.
  2. CORFAC means a competitive advantage for his firm. It has helped set King Industrial Realty apart from the pack and grown customer loyalty. CORFAC gives the firm branding and a larger platform to work from. King Industrial Realty also benefits from learning best practices from affiliates and from CORFAC’s renowned networking and friendships.
  3. How has CORFAC impacted Charlie King? Ideas-Ideas-Ideas, he says. And enabling him to stay on the leading edge of a changing industry. Of course, he very much values the networking and friendship that have benefited his firm through the years, but he has especially appreciated sharing in the success of the organization and its members. And, boy, are we glad!
