Tempe, AZ–January 25, 2022–Menlo Group Executive Vice President Rich Andrus, MBA, CCIM, SIOR, recently received the SIOR designation from the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS® (SIOR). The achievement is awarded to top commercial real estate professionals who demonstrate ethical behavior and strong transactional history.
“I am excited to become an SIOR member,” Andrus said. “This designation has been a goal of mine for years, and I can’t wait to utilize this knowledge and leverage the SIOR network to benefit my clients.”
Andrus joins an elite group of about 3,400 SIOR designees worldwide, including four of his Menlo Group colleagues. To qualify, he submitted a production portfolio, completed coursework and an exam, and received letters of endorsement from current SIOR members in Arizona.
In 2013, Andrus earned the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. The CCIM and SIOR designations are among the top credentials in the industry, and only a handful of commercial real estate professionals in Arizona have earned both.
Andrus joined Menlo Group in 2010 following a successful sales career at Cardinal Health, where he negotiated hundreds of contracts valued at more than $100 million. At Menlo Group, he is consistently one of the company’s highest producers, representing many of Arizona’s top dentists and doctors as they sell, lease and invest in commercial property.
Additionally, Andrus helped found Menlo Group’s sister companies, Menlo Dental Transitions and Menlo Dental Consulting. He also holds an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
“We are incredibly proud of Rich for earning the SIOR designation,” said Menlo Group Designated Broker Grafton Milne, CCIM, SIOR. “His knowledge and experience, particularly in the dental industry, make him a trusted resource for our clients, and this achievement only further sets him apart in our field.”
