Two Eastman Cooke staff members were recently featured in the New York Real Estate Journal’s Spotlight on Women in Real Estate (June 2016).
Melissa Checo, Project Financial Manager for Eastman Cooke, was recognized for her work in the construction business and contributions to Eastman Cooke. Melissa credits an early mentor with encouraging her to “seize the moment,” and making her the leader she is today. She now embraces every opportunity she has to mentor other women in the business.
“I get a sense of personal satisfaction to share my experiences and knowledge with others,” said Checo. “It gives me the opportunity to give back to my peers.”
April Intrabartola, Director of Brand Development, was also featured as a recent NY Brava award-winner. The Brava Award is given out annually by SmartCEO Magazine and recognizes high-impact women in executive positions who exemplify leadership in both business and in their communities.
“I am honored to receive this award, especially for an industry where women executives are such a minority,” said Intrabartola.
She hopes to set an example of what is possible for women in construction, and will encourage women to enter the field.
