Jaclyn May Named Women in Business Award Winner

Jaclyn joins a list of top executives and innovators throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul, which annually recognizes females for their professional achievements, leadership and contributions to the broader Twin Cities community.

“Jaclyn exemplifies everything you want out of a leader: passion, generosity, intellect and professionalism,” said Paul Donovan, Executive Director, in Jaclyn’s nomination to the Business Journal. “She strives to influence positive change in our community, particularly on issues facing women today, through her professional and volunteer work.”

The Women in Business honorees will be recognized at a luncheon May 25 at The Depot in Minneapolis.

Jaclyn joined Cushman & Wakefield in 2008. Since then, she has risen all the way to Executive Director, the top brokerage title possible at the company.

Jaclyn is also a leader in the Twin Cities business world, serving as a committee member with the Association for Corporate Growth, World Savvy, Financial Executives International and the Minneapolis Downtown Council. Her engagement in this area was recently recognized, with her named a finalist for the 2017 TeamWomenMN Wavemaker Community Impact Award.
