Salt Lake City, UT (February 25, 2009) – The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) announced today that Kurt Salomon, a Salt Lake City, Utah home inspector, has won the John E. Cox Award.  Salomon, a four-year former president and founding member of the ASHI Utah chapter, received the John E. Cox Award for his exemplary contributions to his local ASHI chapter.

ASHI created the awards to honor the work of John E. Cox, and to recognize the unselfish giving of time and talent to enrich the profession and the society. The award was announced at the 2009 InspectionWorld premier conference and exhibition for the home inspection industry in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Salomon has passionately promoted the Utah chapter since he founded it in 1997, overseeing a 47 percent growth in membership in just the past year. He also acts as a mentor to area home inspectors and has promoted the use of ASHI professionals to the local real-estate community. The Salt Lake City-based home inspector is the 2009 ASHI national vice president and previously served as the national secretary. He has served as a member of the Utah Association of REALTORS contract and forms committee continuously since 1998. Salomon is also president of Advocate Home Inspectors.

“Kurt Salomon has shown a devotion to the home inspection industry as well as promoting the goals of the American Society of Home Inspectors,” said Bill Richardson, ASHI president. “He has provided thousands of Salt Lake City-area homebuyers with the good advice that can only come from an ASHI inspector.”
