That is where she caught the retail real estate bug. She worked on several large mergers and acquisitions for retailers, including Baskin-Robbins, CVS, Dunkin' Brands, Eckerd, Nextel Communications and Sprint. Wein uses her consultative skills to help large real estate owners and retailers going through major structural, organizational and operational changes. "It has really been incredibly exciting for me," she said. After four years with Ernst & Young, she joined Sembler as a development executive, two years after which she went on to establish WeinPlus. "At the end of 2008 I started my practice really in light of the changing economy to work with companies that were undergoing change," she said. Sembler became her first client and has been loyal to her for these 10 years. Through Sembler she was introduced to Publix. Whatever the future may hold, Wein is eager to make a significant mark. "I want to contribute to a team that is pushing our industry forward," she said. "I think of things in terms of people, process and systems; if you can get those three things right, there is really no limit to what you can do. And I do think that there is a lot of change yet to come." n Rachel Wein Nassimi Realty, LLC. 7 Penn Plaza, Suite 1600 New York, NY 10001 212.643.8080 WITH OVER 5 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL HOLDINGS WE HAVE A LARGE CONCENTRATION IN THE NEW YORK/ NEW JERSEY/ PHILADELPHIA AREA INCLUDING: GREAT SUPERMARKET BACKFILL & NEW LOCATIONS PAD SITES & READY, FREE STANDING BUILDINGS DOWNTOWN URBAN LOCATIONS ANCHOR & JUNIOR ANCHOR SPACES INLINE STORES *Visit Us in Philadelphia at ICSC PA/NJ/DE Conference Booth #523 Beth Azor Tel: 954-615-0615 HOW MUCH IS YOUR VACANCY COSTING YOU?
