JLL’s Katie Kopec named amongst the 51 most influential women in real estate

To mark its first Women Leading Real Estate event, Bisnow has compiled a list of the 51 most influential, dynamic, exciting and successful women in U.K. commercial real estate. Katie Kopec, a director in JLL's strategic development consulting team has been included on the esteemed list and awarded the accolade of 'The adviser that helped shape London'.


Katie is one of the U.K.'s foremost development advisors, having successfully delivered a wide range of complex commercial developments for some of the biggest property owners across the world. 


With more than 25 years' experience, she has built her reputation providing strategic land use, disposal and acquisition advice on large-scale inner-city urban regeneration schemes across the U.K. and in London and has been involved in Canary Wharf, King's Cross, Stratford and the Olympics amongst others.


She is advising British Land on its 46-acre site in Canada Water and was JLL's London lead for providing a development strategy at Mayfield, a major 27-acre regeneration scheme, next to Manchester's Piccadilly train station.


Katie is currently seconded to London & Partners, the official promotional arm for London, where she advises the Mayor of London on regeneration and development opportunities across the city to encourage inward investment.


Mike Phillips, UK editor of Bisnow said: "The list is a celebration of the diversity and talent among the women working in the industry in areas ranging from fund management to development, lending and advisory. The list was compiled after consulting with more than 100 senior real estate professionals from across the sector. Yes, there are not enough women in top roles in the sector. And those that are there are not getting paid enough. But these are the exemplars not just of what success looks like for women in real estate, but of what success looks like."
