Women of Influence 2016
HousingWire recognizes the most influential women in housing
Sally French Tyler’s business achievements include driving one of the highest revenue growth years in her business’ history in 2015. She has led her national division of 1,200 people to deliver financial results that exceed expectations for First American, while simultaneously creating more opportunities for women to excel within First American and across the commercial real estate industry.
Tyler inspires amazing results with a people-first approach that has translated into an 87% employee engagement score for her division, according to a recent employee survey.
Achieving this feat, impressive financial results combined with high employee engagement scores, is difficult in any large organization, let alone for an industry leader in the dynamic, deal-centric world of commercial real estate title insurance.
Tyler helped to found the First American’s Women in Leadership program which, during the past year, has evolved to include a project which addresses enterprise-wide challenges.
The cross-divisional female leaders in this group not only identify corporate needs, but work to address them to the benefit of the company. This has increased the visibility of participants to senior executives and stretched their experiences beyond their current role.
Tyler’s leadership extends well beyond First American as she has impacted the commercial real estate industry at large and local communities through a multitude of philanthropic activities.
She currently serves on the board of the First American Community Fund, and over the course of her career, she has been deeply involved in the CREW Network, the industry’s premier business networking organization dedicated to advancing the achievements of women in commercial real estate.
