Rhonda Diaz-Caldewey and Kazuko Morgan were recently inducted into the San Francisco Business Times “Forever Influential” Honor Roll.
This distinction is an extension of the annual “Most Influential Women in Business” awards which honors the Bay Area’s female leaders across a diverse range of business industries. These outstanding individuals are women who are role models in real estate, finance, technology, medicine, law, education and other fields. They all share these central traits: drive, passion and a commitment to excellence.
Both Diaz-Caldewey and Morgan are San Francisco based retail brokers that have previously been selected multiple times and have therefore been inducted.
According to the May 5th hard cover edition of the San Francisco Business Times:
“We are proud to induct the following distinguished alumni of our Influential Women awards into our Forever Influential Honor Roll of exceptional women leaders. The purpose of this publication is to shine the spotlight on an expanding group of outstanding corporate and civic leaders. Congratulations to these exemplary women, whose leadership, achievements and generosity make them forever influential.”
Gene Spiegelman Vice Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield’s North America Retail Services Group said:
“ It’s no surprise to me that both Rhonda and Kazuko are a part of this prestigious honor roll. Both brokers have a prolific background of proven success, leadership and productivity. They are also often quoted in some of the most respected national news publications and retail and business trade journals. Additionally, they are stellar examples of true commercial real estate professionals, role models and an inspiration to future generations of influential women.”
