A record-setting crowd of 270 men and women gathered at the Standard Club Feb. 23, to honor Lynn Reich, executive vice president of Colliers Chicago and the recipient of CREW Chicago’s 2016 Industry Leadership Award.

 

From the moment she stepped up to the podium to the strains of Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family,” the crowd was in for an entertaining evening.  Reich traced her extremely illustrious career as a trailblazing woman in the field of industrial leasing; however, it was her leadership roles in many professional organizations, such as SIOR International and CREW Chicago, which displayed Reich’s true passion for giving back to the commercial real estate industry, especially to women.

Following the keynote presentation, CREW Chicago announced its 2016 scholarship winners:  Jessica DeWitt, who is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Law at Northwestern University; Lillian Harris, a graduate student at Roosevelt University’s Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate; and Danielle Sassower, who is currently pursuing a MBA from the Kellogg School of Management. Each winner received a $3,000 scholarship from CREW Chicago.
