Franklin Street’s Leigh Anne McGarry, Leasing Associate with the Retail Landlord Leasing team in Atlanta, has been chosen by Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Atlanta to participate in its 2018 leadership development program dedicated to building professional and personal growth. McGarry is among 30 participants selected from about 90 CREW Atlanta member applicants from all aspects of commercial real estate.
Applications were evaluated on criteria that include demonstrated or potential leadership, community involvement, and individual achievements in the candidate’s professional position, community or CREW organization.
The 11-month program began in January with an overnight retreat and monthly sessions will explore career development topics, including conflict resolution, presentation skills, financial awareness, time management, personality testing/awareness, and team building. Franklin Street’s Monetha Cobb, a Leadership CREW alumnus (Class of 2008), serves as Managing Director for the Atlanta office.
In her time at Franklin Street, McGarry has worked with local, regional, and national clients such as DDR, Washington Prime Group, Bluerock Real Estate, Equity One, JBL Asset Management, Slate, and Sandor Development. She is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and CREW, where she serves on the Network Committee and the Social Committee.
“I am so honored to be chosen for this year’s leadership program,” says McGarry. “The program agenda for the year offers courses to help cultivate communication and leadership skills that I can implement in my career. CREW Leadership creates such a unique opportunity for women to come together and create long lasting relationships in the commercial real estate industry.”
