Board Member Spotlight: Charli Elber
Director - Future Leaders
How has CREW brought value to you and your career?
CREW has provided me with invaluable and meaningful connections with mentors in the industry and the confidence necessary to grow in my career. My involvement on the board has also given me leadership skills and opportunities to become a better more confident public speaker.
How did you get into the Commercial Real Estate Industry? What is one thing you love about it?
Completely accidental. I started working at Cushman & Wakefield as a receptionist while I was finishing my degree part-time. I had never been a receptionist before and had no idea what commercial real estate was all about. After working there only a few weeks a quickly realized I wanted to be in leasing. One thing I love about my role in commercial real estate now is the ability to work with many different types of professionals; designers, developers, lawyers, brokers, etc.
What is your favourite place in Edmonton?
Definitely Folk Fest. But in terms of year-round places, I would say roaming around the river valley.
What is your favourite activity to do outside of work?
My favourite activity outside of work is definitely hanging out with my friends and walking Whyte Ave or the river valley with my dog Axel.
