Some of these women have made headlines before. Pulliam was one of Albuquerque Business First's 40 Under Forty honorees and Borgeson was making strides in June to take over her family's companies, Rockefeller's Cleaning and Restoration Co. and Rockefeller's Construction.
CREW is a professional organization of people in the commercial real estate industry with branches all over the country.
Though commercial real estate is known as a male-dominated industry, more women have been promoted to leadership positions within commercial real estate companies not just locally, but nationwide. The 2015 Benchmark Study Report, a study by CREW, showed an increasing number of women in senior vice president, managing director and partner roles at commercial real estate firms.
