Name: Sharon Hart Fanelli, CPM
Title/Co.: Account Director, Cushman & Wakefield
Business basics: I’ve been with Cushman & Wakefield since 2008. My responsibilities include management of a portfolio of two million s/f of office space including New York Life Insurance Co.’s corporate headquarters and two data centers. I joined IREM early in my career in Atlanta—originally to learn about the property management industry. At the time I was a recent hire at AMLI Residential and needed to learn the ropes. Fast forward a few years and I’m the president of our local chapter! Throughout the years, I’ve found that no matter where I lived—from Atlanta to Dallas to NYC—I’ve been met with open arms by the local chapters of IREM. They enabled me to continue my education, and grow my network and make wonderful, lifelong friendships.
Currently binge-worthy: I’m re-watching The Office (even funnier the second time around and I have a crush on John Krasinski) and am obsessed with Dead to Me.
Grand passions: My family and education. My mother was a teacher and she influenced me to work with charities that bring educational opportunities to people who would not otherwise be exposed. I’ve volunteered for Literacy Volunteers for over 20 years and GiGi’s Playhouse for the last 10 years.
Favorite midnight snack: Anything chocolate, especially peanut butter cups.
Go-to cocktail: I love wine but at the beach I’m all about Pina Coladas!
Dream vacation: Anywhere in Europe. We had a huge family trip to Paris planned for this June. Obviously, we’ve postponed it. But we’re ready to pack our bags and go as soon as it’s safe. Au revoir!
