Ten Influential Women in the Apartment Industry

Multifamily Executive’s list of “The 10 Most Influential Women in Multifamily” includes PTAA member Bell Partners CIO Lili Dunn. Here’s an excerpt from her profile:

As Bell’s CIO, Dunn has committed herself to growing the firm’s investment platform, which typically delivers about $1 billion in transactions annually. Her recent accomplishments include the $1.8 billion sale of 64 properties with Bell joint-venture partner DRA ­Advisors, in only 60 days. Also under Dunn’s leadership, Preqin, a data research firm for alternative assets, has ranked Bell Partners as having one of the most consistent top-­performing funds in the world for the past two years…

Dunn also played an integral role early on at AvalonBay, assisting in an IPO that grew the firm’s assets from $300 million to $12 billion and helping coordinate the merger of its predecessors, Avalon Properties and Bay Apartment Communities, in 1998.

Having experienced two major downturns, Dunn knows the business cycle changes quickly and one has to be ready for anything.

“Fiscal and geo-political events can dramatically affect our economy and industry very quickly,” she says. “I take time to appreciate the good moments, because, in a blink, things can change.”

Cindy Clare, President of Kettler Management and Vice-Chairman of the National Apartment Association Board of Directors was also profiled.  Those are just two of ten very impressive people on this list.
