Chicago’s Christy Lockridge Appointed PGIM Real Estate’s First DEI Officer

PGIM Real Estate has appointed Christy Lockridge as the business’s first chief diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) officer, based in Chicago. Lockridge will build upon the firm’s expanded commitment to advancing DEI and will lead the business’s first formal DEI office.

As a 30-year industry veteran, most recently serving as head of Debt Originations for the Midwest, she demonstrated innate passion and commitment while also acting as the co-lead for PGIM Real Estate’s DEI Talent Management efforts over the last year.

“Appointing Christy was a critical step in our mission to cultivate an environment that celebrates varied experience, backgrounds and perspectives,” said Eric Adler, president and CEO of PGIM Real Estate and chair of the DEI Advisory Council. “We are confident that her leadership will guide our efforts toward achieving our DEI goals and continue to build on the progress we have made.”
