The Vancouver Business Journal is pleased to announce that Paul Christensen, president and principal stockholder of Realvest Corporation, has been selected to receive the Kyle W. Corwin Legacy Builder Award. The award recognizes one person annually who has spent their career leading, mentoring, building a business and giving back.
Founded in 1969, Realvest is a fully-integrated real estate investment and development firm. Under Christensen’s leadership, the company has maintained a strong commitment to enriching the community through financial support and active involvement in local charitable organizations.
In 1992, Realvest founded the Hough Foundation, which continues to actively support underprivileged elementary school children by providing access to beneficial enrichment programs, social services and meaningful classroom assistance.
Honored as a First Citizen in 1998, Christensen currently serves on the boards of Identity Clark County, the Fort Vancouver National Trust and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
Christensen holds a bachelor of theology degree from the Episcopal Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California, and a bachelor of philosophy degree from the University of Washington.
Join the business community as we honor Paul Christensen and the members of the Accomplished & Under 40 Class of 2016 at a recognition luncheon on Tuesday, November 1 from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Warehouse ‘23 in Vancouver.
