On July 17th the nominees for the 2019 Profiles in Power Awards were announced, and Beck-Reit’s DeLea Becker was among them! The Profiles in Power Award was created to celebrate women excelling in business, whatever their field, who’s prosperity will affect Central Texas for the better. DeLea Becker was also nominated for last year’s Profile in Power award and had the pleasure of sitting down with Castleview Production to create the video below, highlighting some of DeLea’s strengths, achievements, and advice.
