Florida Home Builders Association Honors Robert Markel with the Paul Joyal Pinnacle Builder Award
For Immediate Release:
October 17, 2015 – The Florida Home Builders Association honored Robert Markel as the recipient of the Paul Joyal Pinnacle Builder Award, a recognition awarded by over 7,500 FHBA members across the state. Selected by a council of industry leaders, the award is presented to a builder member for conducting a high percentage of business with associate members over the span of his or her career.
The award is named after Paul Joyal, a Melbourne home builder and member of the Florida Housing Hall of Fame, who consistently conducted business exclusively with local, state, and national associate members throughout his 30-year career. Markel was presented the award on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, during the FHBA Fall Leadership Conference at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Markel, who has served on the Charlotte-De Soto Building Industry Association Board of Directors since 2012, is committed to work ethic, expectation of quality, and outstanding customer service that represents each of the builders organizations. Aside from himself, Markel’s key employees of his company are also members. He also makes certain that those he does business with are members and, if not, he does his best to recruit them.
“FHBA members value working with other associate members,” said Rusty Payton, FHBA CEO/Chief Lobbyist. “As members, they rely on one another to uphold the high standards that represent their business, reputation, and FHBA. We are proud to recognize Markel for his outstanding career accomplishments.”
Established in 1949, the Florida Home Builders Association is affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and Florida’s local/regional homebuilder associations. FHBA, along with its affiliates, work to create the best possible economic and regulatory environment for members to succeed.
