Carnegie Corporation of New York’s director of investments, Alisa Mall, has been appointed to the Pension Real Estate Association's board of directors


The Pension Real Estate Association (PREA) has appointed Carnegie Corporation of New York’s Alisa Mall to its board of directors — a distinguished panel of leaders in the global institutional real estate investment industry. As the Corporation’s director of investments, Mall is primarily responsible for the management of the Corporation’s real estate and natural resources portfolios, which represent ~15% of the philanthropic foundation’s $3.6 billion endowment.

The 22-member board of directors is elected to three-year terms by the membership and is responsible for developing the strategic direction for the professional associations, comprising 700 corporate member firms across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.

“During her 10 years with the Corporation, Alisa Mall has developed and managed a robust real estate portfolio that has generated important investment returns in support of our philanthropic mission,” said Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York. “We are pleased to see that her accomplishments continue to be recognized by her peers in the real estate investment community, and we know that her skills will be put to good use with the PREA board.”

Mall also currently serves on the PREA Institutional Investor Council and the Advisory Board of Declaration Partners, a family office. A board member of Breakthrough New York and The Bronfman Fellowship, she is also a member of WX and the New York Private Equity Network–Real Estate Women’s Committee. Mall graduated magna cum laude from Yale College with an honors degree in political science and received her JD from Stanford Law School.
