We’re pleased to announce Sally Schwenn as our new Market President to lead Gorman’s Arizona team into the future. Sally is a local multi-family expert, specializing in the acquisition and disposition of affordable housing for the past 22 years. She most recently served as a Managing Director of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in Phoenix. Prior to that, she was a founding partner of Crown West Commercial Real Estate where she and her partner brokered nearly 13,000 units of multi-family housing, most of which involved complex affordable housing transactions with a variety of federal, state and local financing sources. Her career-long focus on originating new multi-family transactions will serve her well in her role as Arizona Market President. She has extensive experience in navigating through local government issues, and regularly represents public sector, private sector and non-profit sector clients in her work. She will bring a unique perspective and background to our diverse leadership team. Sally may be reached at (602) 354-3105 or by Email.
The hiring of Sally Schwenn is an exciting part of Gorman’s succession plan. Sally is taking over the Arizona Market President role from Brian Swanton, who has served Gorman in that role since 2008. Effective January 1, 2018, Mr. Swanton will be taking the reins as President & Chief Executive Officer. Our founding CEO, Gary Gorman, will serve as the Chairman of the Board and continue working on special projects and expanding capital sources for non-traditional community development efforts across the country.
