Carey Gunn Venditti, a real estate shareholder in the Austin office of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, recently accepted an invitation to become an Advisory Council Member of the Real Estate Finance and Investment Center (REFIC) of the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.
REFIC is a nationally recognized think tank cultivating cutting-edge research and curricula on finance-related real estate issues, such as the valuation of mortgage-backed securities, the financial structure of real estate investments trusts, the agency issues associated with real estate financing agreements and the efficiency of real estate investment markets. Council members are nominated among other real estate professionals and included by invitation only.
“I am honored to be chosen to join such esteemed company at such a great university, and I look forward to strengthening our firm’s relationships through REFIC,” said Venditti. “This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with and learn from some of the best minds in the business.”
“We are proud of Carey’s nomination to the REFIC Council and her leadership in our rapidly growing real estate market,” said Darrell R. Windham, co-managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Austin office. “Carey is very committed to serving her alma mater and the Austin community.”
REFIC sponsors several valuable programs, including a National Real Estate Challenge competition for business school graduate students, a student-managed REIT Fund focused solely on U.S. real estate trust (REIT) equity securities, a mentoring program for students and an annual Summer Real Estate Research Symposium co-hosted with UC-Berkeley, Columbia, Cornell, UCLA, Wharton and National University of Singapore.
