GREENVILLE, SC – Wyche has been honored by the Upstate South Carolina chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) with its “Outstanding Leadership Organization Award” for 2013. The award recognizes organizations in the community that are leaders in advancing the success of women in the commercial real estate industry.
“Wyche won this award because it has a unique culture that cultivates unmatched talent, empowers attorneys to take key internal leadership positions, and values a strong commitment to making a positive impact on the community,” said Kasel Knight, award presenter and Commercial Counsel at Milliken & Company. “The effect of Wyche’s culture is particularly evident in the accomplishments of its female real estate attorneys.”
The award was presented at the CREW Upstate 3rd Annual Awards Reception, where Wyche attorneys Rita Bolt Barker, Jo Watson Hackl, and Maurie Lawrence were highlighted as outstanding examples of female leadership. Wyche attorney Megan O’Neill was also recognized for her contribution to some of the most significant real estate development deals in Greenville in recent years.
The awards reception was part of CREW Carolina Connection, a conference that focuses on networking, industry trends, business opportunities, leadership development, and professional skills training for 7 chapters from South Carolina and North Carolina. This year’s conference was held in Greenville, South Carolina for the first time and included opportunities to learn about leadership, mentoring, technology, and development efforts specific to the city of Greenville.
