Jayne McCall, vice president of Hughes Development Corp., was recently honored for her 36-year career in commercial real estate.
Named to Real Estate Forum’s 2018 Women of Influence list, McCall leads a division in Greenville that manages more than 230,000 square feet of medical office space in nine buildings, and more than 1.9 million square feet of office and retail space.
“I have had the good fortune of being mentored by the best, to work on projects from dirt to building occupancy, and make a contribution to [Hughes’] decades of success,” McCall said. “I am grateful and honored to have been selected for this award, and with humbleness, I will continue to support others in pursuit of their careers.”
McCall said one of her proudest career moments was the completion of the 80,000-square-foot Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic in Greenville.
“My military family was just one reason I have such a sense of pride in this first-class development to honor veterans’ service and sacrifice,” McCall said. “It is a facility to support them with a quality environment to meet their medical needs.”
For 25 years, the Women of Influence list has featured women in the commercial real estate industry who work hard in their careers, impact their communities, and mentor upcoming women leaders in the industry.
“A Rudyard Kipling quote is important to me: ‘If you can fill the unforgiving minute/ With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run/ Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,’” McCall said. “One’s career will pass like an unforgiving minute; the challenge is to run it in full,” she added.
McCall was also recently recognized with the Commercial Real Estate Women’s Upstate Career Advancement for Women award. Outside of succeeding in the commercial real estate world, she also serves her community as a board member of the Judson Community YMCA and as a Meals on Wheels delivery volunteer, and she was selected for Class 41 of Leadership Greenville.
