Torres was honored for guiding the development of Parcel Pending, which she founded in 2013 to address the package management challenges of multi-family communities.

Parcel Pending’s package lockers enable property owners and managers to increase responsiveness to residents, provide better service, gain competitive advantage and concurrently reduce operating costs.
