Kevan Lyons, ROCC, Inducted into Smith Society

Kevan Lyons, CEO of REALTORS® of Central Colorado, has been selected for induction into the 2021 class of the Dr. Almon R. (Bud) Smith, RCE, AE Leadership Society, also known as the Smith Society. Kevan is one of three honorees selected this year. 

“Wow, this is truly an honor! It was way cool that I received the NAR congratulations email on my 25th anniversary as our Association Executive (AE)/CEO for the association. Years ago, I set out to connect our members to NAR and CAR, represent small REALTOR® associations, and assist other AEs along the way. I believe we should always give without expecting anything in return. I am genuinely grateful and humbled to receive the NAR Smith Society Induction and recognition.”

Nominees for the Smith Society must demonstrate leadership and have made significant contributions to advance their organization in meaningful ways, with “a proven track record of identifying and sharing innovative ideas.” As an inductee, Kevan will serve alongside Smith Society members as role models for other association executives.  

This recognition comes as Kevan celebrates 25 years as the Association Executive and Chief Executive Officer for REALTORS® of Central Colorado (ROCC). He has shown incredible professionalism, commitment, and dedication to the real estate industry.  

REcolorado and ROCC have formed a partnership to serve as ROCC’s MLS provider and bring innovative products and services to ROCC members for over 5 years. 

“Congratulations, Kevan, on a well-deserved honor. The entire REcolorado team and I are proud to work with a true industry leader and look forward to a continued strong partnership between REALTORS® of Central Colorado and REcolorado.”

REcolorado President and CEO

“In a world where the majority of people job hop every 5 years, it is truly remarkable that Kevan has dedicated 25 years to our industry.  His enthusiasm for constantly learning and sharing ideas with other AE’s, our members, industry partners, CAR and NAR reps, and many others, has kept ROCC uniquely in tune with what’s happening at a state and national level, for which we are grateful.  It’s rare to find someone with his depth of industry and organizational knowledge, which makes this award well deserved.”
