Andrew Farkas on NREI 2011 Top 10 to Watch List

The National Real Estate Investor has come out with its 2011 Top 10 to Watch list. Island Capital Group CEO and Chairman Andrew Farkas was selected to be one of them. Next to Andrew Farkas, nine other candidates were chosen from the varying financial interests and property types. The list shows the real estate leaders who have shaken up the industry and are expected to make the largest impact in the commercial real estate industry during this year. It refers back to deals the leaders made and on actions they took in 2010 and will show whether the risks associated with these actions will pay off. The results of their bold moves will be signs for the impact the recession has made on various industries.

Accompanying Andrew Farkas on the 2011 National Real Estate Investor Top 10 to Watch list are Andrew Mathias, President of SL Green; Michael Tompkins, Managing Partner of TriBridge LLC; Mark Burkhart, CEO of Cassidy Turley; Bill Pettit, President & COO of Merrill Gardens; Sandeep Mathrani, CEO of General Growth Properties; Chris Merrill, President & CEO of Harrison Street Real Estate Capital LLC; George Toth, President & CEO of CanCan Development LLC; Ronald Dickerman, President of Madison International Realty; and Marc Nemer, President of Cole Real Estate Investments.
