CREW Charlotte December Luncheon – CREW Excellence Awards

CREW Charlotte December Luncheon – CREW Excellence Awards

CREW Charlotte Excellence Awards submitted by Emily Buehrer

CREW Charlotte celebrated an exciting and accomplished 25th Anniversary year at the final luncheon of 2015. We spent the afternoon recapping the successes and honoring our members and sponsors. Six members were presented awards for their outstanding contributions. The awards spanned from “Member of the Year” to “Networker of the Year” to highlighting two new CREW Charlotte members being inducted in the CREW Network Foundation’s Women of Vision program. The afternoon’s highlights are as follows:

  • Rising Star Award : Jenn Stuart with Holder Construction received the Rising Star award for her extraordinary contributions through her involvement in the Programs Committee and taking on the challenge of planning the 25th Anniversary Event, as well as attending the annual CREW Convention in Seattle this year.

  • Member of the Year : Nichole Kelley with Wells Fargo was awarded the Member of the Year Award. Nichole embodies the underlying spirit of our Chapter and made multiple significant contributions this year. She led the efforts to bring in the first ever Diamond Sponsor, as well as multiple new sponsors, while also recruiting several new members. She was also instrumental in furthering our Queen City in Pink event and leading the efforts of teaming up with Wells Fargo for the Women’s Habitat Build in the spring and fall this year.

  • Networker of the Year Award : This award was presented to Jean Russell with Interface, for her demonstrated efforts as a master networker actively sending referrals and business to other CREW members on top of offering her own networking class she offers to clients and connections.

  • Outreach Award: Sallie Jarosz with Home Trust Banking received the Outreach award due to her dedication of taking on co-chairing the Leadership Development committee and restructuring it to be much more successful in 2015. She has also taken time to serve as an informal mentor to two different CREW members and has agreed to become a formal mentor in 2016.

  • President’s Choice Award : This CREW member or company made contributions throughout the year that were vital to the ongoing success of the chapter. It was presented to Past President Holly Alexander with New South Properties for her work spearheading the new Mentor Program, along with her continued dedication to serving on the board and multiple committees throughout her membership over the last ten years.

  • Women of Vision : The CREW Network Foundation Women of Vision program was established in 2007 to recognize donors for their cumulative giving to CREW Network Foundation. Participation in the program acknowledges an individual’s commitment to support CREW Network Foundation’s mission – to advance women in the commercial real estate industry through scholarships, industry research, and career outreach. Our chapter is very proud to say we have two members who have been inducted into the Women of Vision program – Nancy Olah with Nancy Olah Law and Angie Dugick, with Dugick Consulting.
