The CREW Network recognized Angelia D. Wesch as a recipient of the 2016 Career Advancement for Women Impact Award.

Angelia, a partner in Oles Morrison’s Seattle office, assists real estate developers, owners, property management firms and construction clients in transactional, litigation and insurance coverage matters. For more than 25 years, Angelia’s insurance coverage practice has included resolving first and third party insurance coverage disputes and litigating complex multimillion-dollar construction claims involving builder’s risk, commercial general liability, and errors and omissions (“E&O”) policies. Angelia advises construction clients on contractual issues involving tenders of defense and indemnity, additional insured coverage and extra-contractual damages.

In addition to her professional practice, Angelia has always been deeply involved with the community, providing leadership and training to women within the real estate and construction industries.  She served as President of CREW Seattle and Sound Chapter in 1999.

“Oles Morrison has long been a supporter of women in leadership, both in law and within the real estate and construction industries,” said J. Craig Rusk, Oles Morrison’s co-managing partner. “Angelia’s commitment advancing women in the Seattle community, and within our firm, through mentorships exemplifies the nature of Oles Morrison’s long legacy of community involvement. The firm has benefited greatly from Angelia’s leadership. ”

Presented at the 2016 CREW Network Convention and Marketplace in New York City, the 2016 Career Advancement for Women Impact Award honors CREW Network members who consistently exemplify CREW Network’s commitment to elevating the status of women in commercial real estate by working to advance the careers of other women.  This award went to members of the CREW Seattle and Sound Chapter’s Leadership Series Task Force comprised of:
