Veteran executive brings extensive range of development expertise that will strengthen Lendlease’s endeavors in the region

Lendlease, a leading global real estate and investment management group, today announced the appointment of Monique Henley as Executive General Manager, New York, for the Americas Development business. Henley is based out of Lendlease’s New York City office and reports directly to Mark Dickinson, Managing Director of Development, Americas.

“Monique's breadth of development experience and proven track record of operational success, across the full project life cycle, will benefit the entire organization as we continue the growth and execution of our East Coast pipeline," said Dickinson. "I look forward to working with her to bring pioneering projects to market and further establish Lendlease’s leadership in sustainable, equitable development that enhances the communities in which we operate.”

In her new role, Henley will lead Lendlease’s integrated projects in the New York market and manage a cross-functional team within the Development group. Supporting the growth of Lendlease’s business, her focus is to pursue and identify development opportunities and large-scale urban regeneration projects in the New York region, facilitate collaborative relationships to guarantee project delivery success, and support development efforts nationally.

Henley joins Lendlease with nearly two decades of real estate experience, through which she has sourced, developed or asset managed 8.7 million square feet of institutional real estate, including residential, office and mixed-use properties in 15 projects across the U.S., including the East Coast.

“Lendlease’s integrated platform affords unique opportunities to contribute to the urban environment, and it’s especially meaningful to continue my career in New York at such a pivotal time for our city,” Henley said. “In assuming this leadership position, I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues and various industry and community stakeholders to ensure our projects align with the evolving needs of the market and, in doing so, generate positive social, financial and environmental outcomes, both today and in the future.”

Prior to Lendlease, Henley was Vice President and Regional Director - Southeast Development for Rockefeller Group. Most recently, her focus has been on the establishment of a residential and mixed-use platform in Atlanta, culminating in a 19-story, 64-unit condominium development, as well as land sourcing and pre-development of a 60-story multifamily and office tower.

Henley received her Master of Science in real estate, with a concentration in finance, from New York University and her Bachelor of Arts in economics from Smith College.
