Nancy McClure, first vice president, CBRE

BACKGROUND: Nancy McClure specializes in retail real estate, representing some of the premier commercial properties in the core areas of Tucson and other key markets. Sought out as a thought leader in strategic advising on property redevelopment and selling investment assets, Nancy has redefined properties into premier real estate holdings that are transforming the face of Tucson’s retail landscape.

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I was involved in the transformation of El Con Mall, an enclosed 1.1 million square-foot mall built in the early 1960s, into a vibrant retail center that is now one of the most successful in Tucson. The process included demolition, re-tenanting the boxes, building new pads along the major road and bringing customers back to the center. It was a heavy lift over a decade but still stands out as an achievement I remember fondly.”

SURPRISING FACT: “Thus far, I have visited 28 countries. From learning how the “toreros” (bullfighters) use their capes to lure bulls while inside the ring with a bull in Sevilla, Spain; attending Christmas mass at the Vatican led by Pope John Paul II; and riding camels in the Sahara Desert with my family, I have had extraordinary experiences. I look forward to more travels to other countries in the future!”

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: “It’s hard to pinpoint just one – there have been many women leaders in my life who have inspired me. My sisters, my close friends, multiple colleagues, and my two daughters to name a few. They have each made significant impact in their lines of work and few have even changed national policy to help current and future generations.”
