We are honored to present this month’s episode of Leadership Reimagined, “A Modern Placemaker” with MaryAnne Gilmartin, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MAG Partners. MAG Partners is a woman-owned, New York-based urban real estate company, developing impactful, iconic, large-scale projects that incorporate principles of beauty, diversity and sustainability.

A conversation with self-made real estate mogul, MaryAnne Gilmartin, shares her story of perseverance in a male-dominated industry. As she describes her journey, “the only thing that was certain was a lot of uncertainty,” but you can always count on your grit and passion.

“I never got that memo that said as a woman in the real estate business you should feel extremely intimidated and be bashful at the table.”

Most recently, MaryAnne also served as interim Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Board of Directors of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation. Prior to founding MAG Partners, MaryAnne was CEO of L&L MAG. After a successful two-year partnership with L&L, MaryAnne spun out of L&L MAG to launch her own firm, MAG Partners. Before that, MaryAnne Gilmartin served as President and CEO of Forest City Ratner, a New York real estate development company, where she succeeded Bruce Ratner as CEO in 2013.
