New CREW President Seeks To Boost 'Connections'


For Turner Construction's Lori-Ann Stevens, commercial real estate is about connections. And she's making that concept the driving force of her presidency this year at CREW San Diego. “What we're trying to do is connect with as many people as possible in the real estate industry,” Lori-Ann says. In recent years, CREW has seen its roster increase with more men, who, Lori-Ann says, "have realized the force behind CREW." CREW just hosted its Winter Leadership Summit national conference in San Diego as well, and the organization is working with us on our first ever Power Women list. The 16-year industry vet tells us the role of women in commercial real estate has changed greatly over time. Today, there are more females in C-suite roles, something that was very rare 20 years ago. “In addition, I think that women in real estate are being taken more seriously,” she says.
