There is something lacking in the commercial real estate industry’s C-suites: Women.

But this year’s leaders who made AZRE’S Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate list are changing that.

“Our Scottsdale headquarters is made up of an all-women executive team, many of whom have been with the company for more than a decade,” says Alana Mann, president and owner of The Statesman Group, which recently launched a nearly $200 million project near Desert Ridge. The project will include The Luxe at Desert Ridge, 223 condominiums, and The Montreux, 335 apartments.

“The smartest professional decision I have made in my career was accepting the rare opportunity to expand my family company from Canada to the U.S. back in 1995,” says Mann, one of AZRE’s Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2018. “Now, The Statesman Group is a diverse group of companies developing and operating real estate as a legacy family company.”

Not only are AZRE’s Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate playing a significant role in today’s commercial real estate industry, their leadership, guidance and mentorship have helped the industry grow and diversify substantially within the past few years.

There is also another characteristic that all the Most Influential Women share.

“Integrity,” says Amanda Houghton, executive vice president of asset management for Healthcare Trust of America. “You have to know who you are, what you stand for and don’t compromise that. Not everyone will like it, but they will respect you for it.”

AZRE’s Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2018 will be honored at a reception that begins at 5:30 p.m. on August 23, 2018 at The Camby. For tickets or for sponsorship information, email events@azbigmedia.com or call (602) 277-6045.
