Natalie Wainwright could focus on being an accomplished tenant-rep broker in Las Vegas and let it go at that. In that capacity, she regularly thinks outside the box on ways to create value for space users. However, she’s focused even more on giving back to the community, and on women’s equality within commercial real estate. She’s the current president of CREW Las Vegas, and goes out of her way to encourage women to step outside of their comfort zone on a daily basis. Her influence as a role model to women extends well beyond the Las Vegas Valley. Wainwright not only pushes her career and other women forward, she does it all as a single mother of two.
Those are just some of the reasons we chose Wainwright to be one of the National 2018 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s second annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Recently, Wainwright decided to establish herself as a nonprofit expert, after representing multiple nonprofits locally as one half of Cushman & Wakefield Commerce’s Team Palmeri-Wainwright, and realizing how much she can give back to their organizations in her capacity as their broker. Wainwright knows that every dollar saved in leasing negotiations goes back to the organization’s cause; accordingly, she has collaborated with local vendors, contractors and landlords to also give back to these organizations in the way of free supplies, labor and construction.
