In its July/August 2017 issue, Real Estate Forum presented its 2017 roster of Women of Influence, selected from hundreds of nominations across the real estate industry. PGIM Real Estate's Lynn DeCastro was among 50 women chosen who are not only successful in their roles, but serve as an inspiration to people within the industry and their communities. DeCastro, an executive director, has more than three decades of industry experience and established PGIM Real Estate's women's leadership network in 2013. The group has since expanded to include diversity across race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and economic and geographic backgrounds. Over the last 12 months, she has completed more than 36 property dispositions worth $2.2 billion, acting on behalf of PGIM Real Estate's investors. She's also a member of the executive committee and advisory board for the Rutgers Center for Real Estate.
