honors female investment professionals and owners

In preparation for our special feature and our Women of Influence retreat, GlobeSt. Real estate forum and together highlight the achievements of women in commercial real estate.

This year we collected nominations in a number of areas and we celebrate the winners at our GlobeSt. Women of Influence Conference in Park City, UT. This year’s number of entries was our largest to date.

This particular category was open to professionals involved in the ownership and investment of CRE – such as direct investors, acquisition managers, analysts or asset, portfolio and fund managers – within a private or public commercial real estate organization.

The women chosen in this category have played a significant role in expanding or repositioning her company’s portfolio and balance sheet over the past year in response to market trends, and demonstrate a strong sense of development of investment strategies, risk assessment and profit maximization.

As always, our seasoned editorial team sought out the best of the best in the commercial real estate spectrum. When evaluating applications, we considered a number of factors, including: the candidate’s impact and reputation within her firm and the wider professional community; highlights of the nominee’s professional career, from business acumen and innovation to customer satisfaction and personal growth; proven ability to achieve goals and demonstrate resourcefulness in creative thinking and problem solving; her dedication to fostering the development of her field and the role of women in it; achievements and involvement in his company, the CRE industry and the wider social community; a personal commitment to the highest ethical standards, service and excellence; and more.

the Annual GlobeSt. Women of Influence Conference celebrates the women who are driving the commercial real estate industry forward. These influential leaders will discuss critical issues facing CRE today and in the future, what it means to be a woman in business today, and CRE’s place in the #MeToo era. They will discuss what they are doing to promote diversity in senior levels of management and what the industry can do to position itself for a more inclusive future.

Keep checking for more winners from other categories and be sure to keep an eye out for the July/August issue of GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum, which will further highlight the accomplishments of these individuals.
