On September 25th, CREW SF members were invited to the Veritas Women in Real Estate (vWIRE) event to hear guest speaker, Connie Moore, share about her successful career in the commercial real estate industry. Connie was the former President and CEO of BRE Properties, Inc., and is currently on the Board of Directors of Columbia Property Trust, TriPointe Group, Civeo Corporation, ULI, Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and Bridge Housing. Connie participated in an interview led by moderators, Yet-Pang Au, CEO and Founder, and Nina Tran, Chief Financial Officer. She shared her career path, experience of being one of a few women CEOs in the REIT industry, challenges faced as a woman leader in commercial real estate, what she looks for when recruiting top talent and lessons learned along the way. Her personal motto is: “Do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it.” Connie was very articulate and engaging, and everyone in the room was so inspired by this accomplished businesswoman.
