The Weitz Company Business Development Manager Samantha Pinkal was recently interviewed for an article in the July/August issue of AZRE, which addresses the role and wages of women in the commercial real estate industry. Pinkal shared her personal and professional journey from her early years as a girl scout member receiving an award for constructing a gazebo to earning a degree in construction management to joining Weitz as a project engineer in 2006.
Since then, Pinkal has steadily accelerated her way up the organization and credits Weitz’s leaders, who provide an inclusive environment with opportunities to learn, lead and have fun.
“The leaders of our industry should be actively encouraging their female employees to seek leadership positions and provide them with the resources they need to do so,” Pinkal said. “I know my career would have been very different had I not had a mentor and a champion for me at Weitz.”
