46 Women In Real Estate Who Crushed It In 2019

In the run up to the third annual Women Leading Real Estate event, Bisnow decided to take a look back at a remarkable year for UK real estate, but through a different lens to the usual end-of-year reviews. Here, we present a list of women in commercial real estate who have had a magnificent 2019, and are helping to shape the real estate sector at a time of immense change.

This group has founded startups and sold their successful businesses to larger peers; taken on executive roles at listed companies, and driven innovation and change at their existing firms; they are red in tooth and claw capital markets deal-makers; and they are figuring out how to apply the principles of the circular economy to real estate so the sector can help fight the climate emergency. They are diverse, passionate and, in so many cases, working to improve diversity in the property sector in the UK and beyond.

Last year’s Women Leading Real Estate built on the success of the debut event, growing from 500 attendees to more than 650. We are hoping to make this year’s event even bigger. At the event, big name speakers will be outlining how they made it to the top of the business world, and rising stars will be talking about how they plan to get there. We hope you can join us.
