Company CEO on hand to address gathering at International Business Awards
Mississauga, ON – Steve Morris, CEO and Founder of EXIT Realty Corp. International joined a distinguished group of honorees in Istanbul, Turkey last week as the best in global business were recognized at the 7th Annual International Business Awards.
Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word “crowned,” EXIT Realty earned a Distinguished Honoree medal in the category of “Most Innovative Company of the Year in North America”.

Honorees were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 40 countries.

“I had the special privilege of introducing single-level residuals to the real estate industry in North America in 1996,” Morris told the gathering. “Based on today’s economic pressures, it has proven to be a godsend to many REALTORS®. This award is a wonderful honor that wouldn’t have been possible without the help of three individuals here with me tonight; Tami Bonnell, President of our US Organization, Erika Gileo, Senior Vice President of Operations and my wife, Cathy Morris.”
