New York, NY – August 3, 2015 ALM’s Real Estate Forum, the leading national publication of the commercial real estate industry, has announced its 2015 Women of Influence list. For the 22nd consecutive year, the list highlights the accomplishments of 50 women professionals in the traditionally male-dominated industry of commercial real estate. The winners will be featured in the August issue of Real Estate Forum, available here.

“Our 2015 Women of Influence not only stood out from a pool of more than 350 high-caliber nominees, but they have also carved out a reputation for themselves among their counterparts in the overall commercial real estate industry,” said Sule Aygoren, editor-in-chief of ALM’s Real Estate Media. “Be it through their deal-making prowess, business knowledge or contributions to the industry or their firm, these professionals have exhibited the characteristics that exemplify leadership.”

The 50 women selected this year have more than 1,200 years of combined industry experience, from careers spanning nine to 44 years, and represent all areas of the commercial real estate field, from brokerage and ownership, to legal and accounting, to institutional and consultancy.  Each of the honorees is located throughout North America but has completed deals across five continents and operates in all segments of the income-producing real estate markets, including single-family rentals.
