Bend, Oregon – The Central Oregon Builders’ Association (COBA) honored real estate development company Brooks Resources Corporation with a Lifetime Achievement Award at its annual Awards of Excellence gala earlier this month. The award was granted based on criteria such as the company’s strong commitment to preserving the natural environment, community involvement and volunteerism, and a strong history of promoting positive growth in the region. President & CEO of Brooks Resources, Mike Hollern, accepted the award; he has been with the company for 42 years since its formation in 1970.
“Mike Hollern and Brooks Resources earned the COBA Lifetime Achievement Award for their 40 year commitment to COBA, the Central Oregon building industry and our community,” said Tim Knopp, executive director of COBA. “Brooks Resources is one of 22 founding members of COBA, which was established in 1972 and this speaks to their commitment to best practices in development and building.”
