Distinguished Leaders Panel May 10, 2022

The Distinguished Leaders Panel Happy Hour on May 10, 2022, included Theresa A. Foxley (President, EDC Utah), Farran Tozer-Brown (Director, Vectra Management Group), and Sarah Wright (Executive Director/Founder, Utah Clean Energy).  The panel was moderated by Josh Caldwell (Business Development Executive, Mortenson).

These three outstanding women are prominent professionals who touch and support the commercial real estate industry. Prompted by Josh, the panel captured the journey of each panelist—how they overcame obstacles and carved a career path that led to leadership. The event was an opportunity for CREW members to hear from women outside the organization, whose leadership ultimately moves the ball forward for women in the commercial real estate industry in Utah.


Discussion topics included the importance of mentorship and relationships, influences and unforeseen changes to career paths, the importance of being knowledgeable and prepared, overcoming self doubt, disrupting the status quo for women in the workplace, supporting women during/after the pandemic, and even what female literary character the panelists associate with and why. CREW members and guests left inspired to continue elevating women in commercial real estate.

A special thanks to out event sponsor, Snell & Wilmer, and to our event host, INDUSTRY.
