Brynn McCan is a Woman in Leadership

by Suzanne Licata

Brynn McCan is a woman in leadership. Joining Curry Real Estate Services in 2007 to head human relations, she quickly took on other responsibilities including supporting CEO Ellen Todd in her day-to-day activities, oversight of IT as well as shepherding crucial operational initiatives that are key to Curry maintaining its highest standards of excellence, integrity, and transparency.

“Brynn is the kind of coworker who comforts you because she is so capable, you know the task will be taken care of right, and challenges you because she brings such energy and commitment you just have to keep up,” said Todd. “It’s a great combination that serves the team, our tenants and our owners.”

Recently promoted to senior vice president, McCan said she is energized by the opportunity to pursue solutions that help the company further optimize its performance.

“Curry already has very high standards of service to its tenants and owners and Ellen continually encourages the team to meet and exceed those standards,” said McCan. “I love the challenge of finding and customizing the practical tools and protocols that help our team do just that. It’s like a puzzle and I get to play this role in helping to solve it.”

McCan came to the company after four years with the former DST Systems in an HR role.

“I was attracted by the Curry culture and the variety of work I would get to do,” she said. “Every day is different, energizing and you can see the impact you’re making.”

Passionate about her work, McCan carries a similar dedication to her involvement in Synergy Services. She is chair-elect of the organization and has chaired both its Kindest Kansas Citian Awards and Stand Up for Synergy fundraisers. She started working with the nonprofit, which assists individuals and families with respite from violence and skills for future safety, after college and joined its board in 2019. Her long devotion to Synergy has drawn enthusiastic involvement of other Curry team members in the organization.

“I so believe in Synergy’s mission,” McCan said. “They serve people in crisis and work proactively to empower individuals to make choices that break the cycle and assure their future safety and success.

“The depth of my involvement in Synergy is possible only because Ellen taught me the value of community involvement that really makes a difference,” she added. “If I didn’t have that mentoring, if I didn’t work in an environment like Curry’s that not only allows but encourages this level of commitment, I couldn’t do it.”
