We’re excited to continue the Erica Lindenbaum Tishman Leadership Award program! In its second year, the annual award is presented to a person who personifies the values and embodies the spirit that Erica represented every single day, demonstrating exceptional leadership skills, an interest in mentorship and developing peers, a passion for resolving a particular challenge, empathy towards others, and a commitment to community service.
After much consideration, through a process driven by the memory of Erica’s spirit and passion, the Selection Committee agreed that Kasey Pace personified the award in many ways. A recognized leader in the A/E/C industry and member of Zubatkin’s Leadership Team, Kasey was nominated in recognition of her strong work ethic, commitment to developing younger staff in their careers, and collaborative approach to problem-solving. Her dedication to community service is apparent through her involvement in many not-for-profit and industry organizations, including Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) New York, Women Builders Council (WBC), Women In Need (WIN), and the New York Building Congress (NYBC).
Kasey has selected Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) as the charity that will receive a donation in her honor. She chose this organization because of its important mission of helping to empower and improve representation for women in the construction industry, as well as her own personal involvement in supporting the organization through the years from the successful completion of a NEW Signature Project, collaborative mentorship with NEW/CREWNY to most recently transitioning onto the NEW Ambassadors Council. Please join us in congratulating Kasey!
