Many infuential women in the industry were honored at last night's CREW DC 2016 awards, but the top award went to Savills Studley senior managing director Wendy Feldman Block. Wendy won the Outstanding Impact Award, which last year was given to Cushman & Wakefield's Sherry Cushman.
Wendy has been with Savills Studley since 1987, advising tenants in a range of projects and has also taken leadership roles in numerous community, charitable and business organizations.
In her speech, Wendy referenced a recent story about female White House aides validating each other in top meetings to ensure they are given credit for their ideas. She also touched on the likelihood of the nation electing its first female president next month.
"Just like the women in the White House," Wendy said, "more of the women in our industry are getting a seat at the table..."Wendy Feldman Block Wins CREW's Outstanding Impact Award
