CREW-St. Louis honors local female CRE leaders

The St. Louis chapter of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) honored members at its 13th Annual Networking Awards held March 8 at The Saint Louis Woman’s Club. In addition to members, CREW-St. Louis presented its third annual Woman of Influence Award. The award recognizes a female leader who has impacted the commercial real estate industry through her leadership, accomplishments and service to the St. Louis region.

Cindy Preszler, broadcast and web meteorologist, served as the evening’s master of ceremonies.

One of the award recipients was Colliers International's Erin Torney

Career Advancement for Women: Erin Torney, Colliers St. Louis

CREW-St. Louis members recognized Torney for her constant efforts to support and advance the careers of women in commercial real estate. In fact, one nominee credits her for helping when she contemplated a transition to a new company. 

Part and parcel, she has served in key positions as a member of the golf and ambassador’s committees. She then became co-chair of the ambassador’s committee, which welcomes new members and provides networking opportunities to all members. She is ideally suited for her latest role as co-chair of the membership committee.

Torney holds leadership positions with other organizations outside of CREW-St. Louis, focusing her efforts on education and advocacy to help others advance their careers.
