Susanne Newmark has served as Founder and President of Newmark Associates CRE since 1986 – building a reputation over the last 32 years as one of the most respected and successful Commercial Real Estate providers and certified Woman-Owned Businesses in New Jersey.
Newmark is a member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America’s corporations. As the largest third-party certifying agent of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States, WBENC provides its world class standard of certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country.
Susanne has personally been a recipient of various awards – most recently in 2017, for the Women Who Shine Awards as one of six senior management executives chosen from over 100 nominations for outstanding achievements in business and the community. Selection criteria included success in business, philanthropic activity and tireless efforts to invest in advancing the cause of women.
As President, Ms. Newmark oversees all organizational activities, including transaction management and implementation; strategic consulting and project planning; leasing and property management. At a time when many companies have reduced funding for staff enrichment, she cultivates leadership development of her professional team through facilitating participation in both informative and transformative learning programs.
Newmark Associates received company-wide recognition as a repeat recipient of the CoStar Annual Award for “Best of the Best” and was rated by NJBiz as one of the “Top 250 Privately-Owned Companies” along with receiving RXR’s “Deal of the Year” award. Creating solutions in real estate matters for regional, entrepreneurial firms, Newmark Associates has worked extensively with Fortune 500 companies and is a Supplier Diversity Provider to major corporations.
As noted in Forbes magazine in June 2012, “in a field that has ‘gone global’ Newmark’s business model guards against the growth that has many larger firms lose touch with the clients and customers they serve.” Susanne’s motto “What works best for the client” drives her creative deal structuring, always keeping clients’ best interests in the forefront, and bringing imagination, attention to detail and cutting edge knowledge of the regional market to bear for both tenants and owners.
Susanne graduated from Queens College, City University of New York where she also received a Master’s Degree and was employed as a teacher until she had her own children and later changed professions to become a commercial real estate broker.
Avid about boating, travel and spending time with family, she balances her professional and married life with volunteer efforts for the Board of Family Services and various other charitable organizations.
