Brandon R. Fugal spoke to students Feb. 25 at the Reed and Christine Halladay Executive Lecture about some of the key turning points in his successful career.

Fugal, a young Executive Vice President of Coldwell Banker Commercial, is also UVU alumnus. He graduated with a Business degree in 1994 and is now recognized as one of the top international commercial brokers for Coldwell Banker out of the 4,000 agents worldwide. He currently represents more office space and commercial projects than any other agent in Utah.

Fugal started into the real state world at 18 when he went to Salt Lake and began shadowing successful commercial brokers or what he calls “captains of industry.” Being young, Fugal had to prove himself as responsible and honest with little to recommend him except his integrity and hard work.

Fugal succeeded by sticking to the idea that you should never underestimate someone’s potential because you never know what the future holds. “Treat everyone as if they have the potential of Bill Gates,“ said Fugal. Fugal currently serves on the Board of the UVU Foundation.
