Launched "Colliers Monthly Coffee and Conversations" initiative during the pandemic
Active with CBA, NAIOP and community organizations
As a Senior Vice President on Colliers Boston’s Urban Brokerage Team, Lauren Vecchione is highly respected by colleagues and clients alike. Vecchione views herself as an extension of her clients’ businesses, focusing on creative options to accommodate their goals, brand, culture, and efforts to retain and recruit vital talent. She openly collaborates with peers in both the Colliers Boston office and the larger business community, consistently seeking out opportunities to recognize and empower others.
At the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, Vecchione co-launched a new initiative, “Colliers Monthly Coffee and Conversations” to stay connected with women across the industry. The group of participants continues to grow, and now more than 200 women are invited to join the monthly discussions. Topics range from being working parents to social injustice, as well as in-depth discussions on what is going on in Boston’s office, life science and industrial markets. The initiative grew to where Vecchione and her co-chair decided to host an in-person event as a forum to connect the participants in Boston and to strengthen the community.
Vecchione participates in a diverse mix of industry, charitable and neighborhood organizations. On behalf of Colliers, she and a colleague recently organized an effort called “Up and Out” in partnership with Heading Home and the Wonder Woman group. Up and Out helps those in transition become settled into their new permanent homes.
From a real estate perspective, Vecchione is an active board member for the Commercial Brokers Association (CBA), which is a division of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) She is also a member of NAIOP Massachusetts’ Program Committee.
A full-time working mom, she is passionate about supporting other women and mothers in the workplace.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Lauren Vecchione as one of the Boston & New England 2022 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect CRE’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
