Carter, one of the country’s leading real estate investment, development and advisory firms, is pleased to announce that Malloy Peterson, senior vice president, has been named a “Woman to Watch” by Real Estate Forum Magazine’s 20th Anniversary Special Edition of “Women of Influence.”
Real Estate Forum announced on August 29 that Malloy was chosen as one of 115 influential women from across the country who are helping shape the commercial real estate industry. She was one of three women selected from Atlanta.
“It is an honor to be recognized as a Next Generation Woman of Influence,” said Malloy. “Our generation of female commercial real estate leaders has benefited greatly from the trailblazing women who came before us. Today, women can envision and experience success by looking to other women at almost every level and facet of the industry. While the pace might be slow, progress is everywhere, and I’m honored to be a part of that progress.”
Real Estate Forum’s “Women of Influence” issue profiles top female executives in the commercial real estate industry. The awards honored the women for their considerable professional achievements as well as their involvement in charitable and civic organizations.
A nine-year veteran of Carter, Malloy has served the company in various capacities, including business development, client advisory and marketing roles. In her current role, Malloy focuses on three primary areas: business development, advisory and strategic business planning.
Scott Taylor, Carter’s president, commented: “We are incredibly proud of Malloy and all her accomplishments. She has positively impacted all areas of our company. We warmly congratulate her on this significant recognition.”
Malloy is a natural leader and an important role model within Carter and in the industry, on both a local and national level. She is a valuable member of the Carter Leadership Team and is commonly sought out for her expertise by members of all three sectors of Carter’s business – investment, development and advisory.
Last year, Malloy led Carter’s rebranding efforts to establish a new brand identity and logo, following a strategic shift in the company’s core focus and the sale of two of its service lines. In September 2012, the new logo and tagline - "Built on Bold” - was revealed, as well as the launch of Carter’s newly designed website. As a result, Carter’s brand recognition among key stakeholders increased 58 percent year over year.
In 2013, Malloy delivered a two-year assignment of strategic consulting, master planning, pre-development and marketing/public relations for University Station, a mixed-use 155-acre development in Georgia. Malloy also wrote and executed various strategic business/marketing plans for The Banks, Carter’s $600 million, 18-acre mixed-use project in Cincinnati. The project has achieved 100 percent lease-up on the residential portion and has reached 91 percent occupancy on retail. Today, The Banks makes a $90 million annual economic impact on the Cincinnati community.
Malloy, a true up-and-coming real estate professional, has over a decade of real estate experience at just 36 years old. She embodies Carter’s values with her strong working spirit, unmistakable energy and bold dedication to the industry.
