GTIS Partners Appoints Sharon Liss as Managing Director

GTIS Partners LP, a global real estate investment firm with a focus on residential and industrial/logistics investments, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its U.S. Capital Markets team with the hire of Sharon Liss as a Managing Director. Ms. Liss brings over 17 years of extensive experience working with institutional investors in real estate capital markets to the firm.

Ms. Liss will lead U.S. institutional fundraising efforts and be responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with institutional investors and the consultant community. She will report to Peter Ciganik, Partner and Head of Capital Markets at GTIS.

The expansion of the firm’s fundraising team points to GTIS’ efforts to ramp up capital raising across its established verticals in residential and industrial development in the U.S. With the recent launch of GTIS’ U.S. Real Estate Debt Strategies Fund, aimed at taking advantage of the current debt market dislocation, the firm will also benefit from Ms. Liss’s experience in real estate credit.

Prior to joining GTIS, Ms. Liss was a Managing Director of Capital Markets at CenterSquare Investment Management, a Philadelphia-based investment firm active in listed real estate, private equity and real estate debt. At CenterSquare, she was responsible for business development and consultant relations across the firm’s real estate products. Previously, she served as Managing Director, Business Development for Sugar Hill Capital Partners, a New York-based investment and development firm focused on multifamily properties. Ms. Liss started her career as a member of the Debt Capital Markets group at RBC Capital Markets.
