Manages Realterm airport infrastructure portfolio
In 2022, oversaw nearly 100 property leases while launching several capital improvement projects
Julie Fish joined Realterm in 2019 as Vice President of Asset Management. In her role, she is responsible for overseeing performance and strategy across the firm’s Airport Infrastructure portfolio. She specifically focuses on all aspects of the operation and strategic management of airport industrial real estate in North America. This includes buildings dedicated to the movement of cargo both on and near airport environments.
Her team focuses on maximizing property revenues, ensuring that adequate capital is deployed at each facility and creating all-encompassing budgets and business plans at each property. The Realterm airport infrastructure portfolio managed by Fish includes 110 investments at 37 airports across the U.S. and Canada, totaling more than 10 million square feet.
Under Fish’s leadership, Realterm’s airport infrastructure department has embedded environmental, social and government into its investment approach to enhance performance and ensure assets remain resilient today and in the future. She has helped lead the fund as a higher GRESB performer. In 2022, the fund received three green stars, and was placed in the top third out of 18 in the U.S. Core Distribution Warehouse Tenant Controlled GRESB peer group.
In 2022, Fish and her team oversaw nearly 100 property leases, executed multiple capital improvement projects and implemented multiple ground lease extensions with airport authorities.
A graduate of Brown University, Fish serves as a member of that institution’s alumni interview group. She was also on the board of Brown Women in Business during her time with the university.
These are just a few reasons we chose Julie Fish as one of Connect CRE Chicago & Midwest’s 2023 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s seventh annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders who will have a strong influence on the commercial real estate industry.
