Karen Benoit has served at Kidder Mathews for more than 30 years, which has firmly established her as a key leader within the organization. Today, she serves as senior vice president of corporate marketing and communications, leading a team of 11 creative professionals based at Kidder Mathews’ headquarters in Seattle, as well as more than 70 marketing professionals across 22 offices. In her role, she creates and oversees the company’s brand and marketing strategy presence and is responsible for growing the firm’s market presence.
Her knowledge of the commercial real estate industry and the West Coast markets Kidder Mathews serves is extensive, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed, both in the community and by her peers. Her expertise as a leader and a savvy CRE professional garnered her several recent awards. Though a true testament to Benoit’s legacy is the fact that Kidder Mathews has earned more than 63 awards for being a “best place to work” by Puget Sound Business Journal, The Oregonian, San Diego Business Journal, and the San Francisco Business Times, to name a few. Overall, the firm has received more than 425 corporate awards and recognitions under her marketing leadership.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Benoit as one of the 2020 Women in Real Estate Award winners in Seattle & Pacific Northwest. Connect Media’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.
Benoit’s leadership style is to always seek to create a best-in-class culture and brand allowing the firm and to stand out in the industry and to better serve the firm’s clients. It is one reason Kidder Mathews claims the crown as the largest independent commercial real estate firm on the West Coast, with 900 real estate professionals and staff in 22 offices in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, and Arizona.
