GL Homes COO Marcie DePlaza spoke to a sold-out all-female audience in West Palm Beach. GL Homes Senior Director of Community Relations Sarah Alsofrom interviewed Marcie DePlaza in front of a rapt audience of the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches Women in Business Committee.
Marcie DePlaza discussed her 32-year career in the male dominated homebuilding and construction industry. Marcie spoke about the challenges she faced and candidly answered questions about education, career, family and leadership.
GL Homes Vice President/Project Manager Jill Schimming Taddeo was on hand to share stories about juggling work and family along with what it’s like to work with supportive colleagues at GL Homes.
GL Homes treated the guests to a three-course lunch at Table 26 in downtown West Palm Beach.
In the spirit of giving, the Chamber donated all ticket proceeds from the leadership luncheon to the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. During the event, GL Homes made a surprise announcement by donating $2,000 to the Literacy Coalition. On hand to receive the donations was Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County CEO Kristin Calder.
