For the past three years, she has been the driving force behind launching the McCombs Properties brand and setting and achieving the portfolio’s goals. In this role, she used her extensive marketing, operations and project management experience, working with the sales teams, marketing companies, developers, builders and various vendors.“It’s all about creating opportunities for the excellent team we have” said van Streepen. “My signature initiative is to expand on our established Boot Camp and Professional Selling System by growing the Training Innovation Program.
