ST. LOUIS, Mo. – S. M. Wilson Interim President and Chief Human Resources Officer Rebecca Cornatzer is one of the 100 C-level executives and CEOs chosen for the 2024 St. Louis Titan 100. This program recognizes the St. Louis area’s most accomplished business leaders in their industries using criteria that demonstrate exceptional leadership, vision and passion.

“The Titan 100 are visionary leaders that inspire the St. Louis business community,” says Jaime Zawmon, president of Titan CEO. “These preeminent leaders have built a distinguished, unrivaled reputation in their field. We are humbled to recognize the Titan 100 for their efforts to shape the future of the St. Louis business community.”

In a typically male-dominated industry, Rebecca Cornatzer, who has been with the company for seven years, has helped open doors for females in the construction industry. S. M. Wilson & Co., a 100 percent employee-owned construction management company, saw a need to prioritize and invest in diversified talent. With a looming construction trade worker shortage and the desire to position the firm for future success, it was essential to strengthen recruitment efforts to find diverse talent for its progressive culture while addressing the workplace shortage in field positions. Since joining S. M. Wilson, Cornatzer’s efforts have significantly shaped the firm’s workplace, especially for women. The firm has been an honoree for the past three years in the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis’ fourth annual Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard.

“I am honored to receive this recognition,” Cornatzer said. “At S. M. Wilson, our team members are an important aspect of our company and make everything possible with our clients. I will continue to focus on the company’s strategic initiatives related to recruitment, retention and professional development.”

She will be honored at the Titan 100 awards celebration Apr. 18 at The Armory in St. Louis.
