BOULDER - Dean Callan and Co. this week recognized Tom Hill of Wright-Kingdom Real Estate and the late Fenton Bain, a former local attorney, with the Dean Callan Recognition Award.

The Boulder brokerage gives the award annually in memory of Dean Callan and in recognition of his years of dedicated commercial real estate service.

Dean Callan and Co. president Becky Callan Gamble presented this year's awards at the Commercial Brokers of Boulder meeting Monday to Hill and Bain's wife, Vicki. Bain died in July.

The recipients were nominated by their peers.

In addition to the awards, the McElwain and Callan families make a $2,500 charitable donation in the names of the award winners. The charity is chosen by the award winner from a group of charities the families believe Dean Callan would have supported. Both Hill and Vicki Bain chose the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for their halves of the donation this year.

Criteria for the award include exceptional professional service to clients, respect, integrity, community involvement, and leadership and mentoring.
