Johnny Chappell Recognized With 2021 CEO & C-Suite Award

Thanks to exceptional leadership, collaboration, and innovation, owner/broker Johnny Chappell was selected along with 20 community leaders as a 2021 Triangle Business Journal’s CEO & C-Suite of the Year. Executive leadership from the TBJ selects a list of winners who exemplify extraordinary leadership and go above and beyond a job description. Winners were chosen across industries in the Triangle, from banking to law to healthcare. Peers and colleagues nominate executives through an online submission, and winners are celebrated at an awards dinner on September 22 at The Umstead Hotel and Spa.

“In the wake of a challenging year, this is a reflection of so many ideas and innovations that, as a company, changed our conversations and shaped our path forward. I owe a lot to the resiliency and adaptability of our clients, partners, and most importantly, our team.”

Due in part to the company’s tremendous growth in the past several years, Executive Assistant Starla Sampson said there isn’t anyone more deserving of this award. “Over the last five years, I’ve watched Johnny Chappell grow his company from a three-person team to a 19-person team.” Chappell goes above and beyond as an employer, serving as a leader in addition to a team player and mentor. “As was one of his first employees, I’ve witnessed this remarkable growth over such a short amount of time, and it’s all been possible because Johnny’s priority is his people. He remained aware of the need for the team’s expansion; however, he has always taken those he hired’s personal and professional growth into account.”

Chappell says he couldn’t have gotten this far without his incredible team behind him. “I’m honored and truly humbled to be included in the Triangle Business Journal’s 2021 CEO & C-Suite Awards winners. In the wake of a challenging year, this is a reflection of so many ideas and innovations that, as a company, changed our conversations and shaped our path forward. I owe a lot to the resiliency and adaptability of our clients, partners, and most importantly, our team.”

The Chappell team had a blast at the Triangle Business Journal’s CEO of the Year and C-Suite Awards at The Umstead Hotel & Spa on September 23rd.

Not only did the local team grow, Chappell [Powered by Compass] expanded its footprint with new listings and developments across the Triangle, plus a partnership with New York-based Compass. “We doubled down on our investment in a digital-centric approach, partnered with a nationally renowned brokerage firm, Compass, and continued expanding our reach in the Triangle. This is just the beginning for our team, and I’m thrilled for the future.”
