HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
Carey Gunn Venditti, a shareholder at the global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, has been named the 2015-2016 chair of the inaugural Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) Council for ULI Austin, a local District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI). Created nationally in 2012, WLI was formed to raise the visibility and number of women leaders in ULI and the real estate industry, in general. Since its creation, WLI has formed in more than 20 ULI District Councils across the country, and this will be the first time to have WLI in Austin.
“I am honored to have been chosen as the 2015-2016 chair of the inaugural Women’s Leadership Initiative for ULI Austin. I am excited to have the opportunity to promote WLI’s mission here in Austin among the incredible ULI Austin members, as well as within the real estate community at large,” said Venditti.
“We are proud of Carey for assuming this leadership role, and for her dedication to promoting and supporting women in the industry,” said Darrell R. Windham, co-managing shareholder of the firm’s Austin office. "This is further validation of the respect and admiration Austin real estate professionals have for Carey."
Venditti advises both developers and investors on legal matters related to acquisition, disposition, development, build-out, and administration of commercial, mixed-use, residential planned community, and condominium projects, including various public-private partnerships.
