The Florida Council of 100 has announced that veteran real estate executive Chris Corr is the recipient of the Council’s 2023 Governor’s Business Leader Award. The award recognizes long-term excellence in business, civic service and philanthropy.
Chris Corr has over 30 years’ experience in real estate development, including leading some of the highest-profile projects in the U.S. Throughout his career, he has held senior leadership roles in four public companies and has led more than 50 master-planned residential, commercial, and infrastructure projects
“In each of these achievements, Chris has led quietly, with the heart of a true servant. He never seeks recognition; he always deflects credit to others; and he always puts the interests of others, particularly the interests of our state, ahead of his own,” said Steve Halverson, former Council of 100 chair and lead member of the award selection committee.
“The criteria for this award are simple, though hard to achieve. Each year, the Council highlights one of our CEOs who has excelled not only in business but in the civic and philanthropic world as well. There isn’t a more deserving leader than Chris Corr, who models these traits for all of us to follow,” said Eric Silagy, Chair, Florida Council of 100.
Corr presently is Senior Vice President of Real Estate Development at Rayonier and President of Raydient, Inc., a subsidiary company focused on real estate development primarily in Florida, Georgia, and Washington.
