New York, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Suzanne West, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Park Madison Partners, a New York-based real estate placement and advisory firm focused on the global real estate private equity industry, has been named one of Real Estate Forum magazine’s “Women of Influence” for 2012. Out of approximately 200 candidates, fewer than 50 women were selected for the annual award.
Ms. West said, “I am honored to have been selected as one of the real estate professionals chosen for this prestigious award. Looking at the list of my peers, I can see that what they have accomplished as leaders in our industry demonstrates the progress that has been made in the last decade. What is particularly encouraging is the recognition that the award gives to those who have also taken on mentoring roles to young women and men, often from diverse backgrounds, who wish to enter our industry.”
“These outstanding women executives are selected by the editors from hundreds of candidates throughout the U.S.,” said Sule Aygoren, Editor of Real Estate Forum. “This short list is not easy to compile. We salute the winners, who are truly the best of the best.”
Ms. West has 20+ years of industry experience, beginning with seven years in the real estate group of the then $20 billion State of Connecticut Trust Funds (“SCTF”), where she was involved in the management of its $1.7 billion real estate equity and commercial mortgage portfolios as an investment officer, ultimately co-heading the group. Since 1997, Ms. West has focused primarily on new fund development, private equity capital sourcing and investor relations for both public and private real estate companies. In 2006, Ms. West co-founded PMP with Nancy Lashine and has been involved in raising more than $4 billion of equity capital. She is a member of the Pension Real Estate Association and a mentor in the Toigo Fellowship program.
