2014 Women of Influence: Pamela Liebman


PAMELA LIEBMAN joined The Corcoran Group 29 years ago and is today the company’s president and CEO. Liebman has led the company on a path of growth and robust profitability through strategic acquisitions, skilled negotiations and the founding of new business group, Corcoran Group Marketing, making Corcoran the first New York City real estate firm to establish its own development division.

In 2002, Liebman negotiated the acquisition of Corcoran by NRT, the largest real estate brokerage company in America. This was followed by additional corporate initiatives, including the purchase of Citi-Habitats, New York City’s largest rental brokerage firm.

In 2013, Liebman successfully negotiated an agreement which won Corcoran the right to market and sell all New York City new luxury residential condominium properties for Related Companies, including the Hudson Yards project, the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center.

This agreement will represent a pipeline of nearly $5 billion in new condominium properties. “Pamela’s negotiation skills are legend and the agreement entered into with Related Companies reflects her extraordinary talent and keen foresight that continues to drive the growth and future of the Corcoran business,” a company spokesperson said.

Liebman has worked to provide an inclusive working environment at The Corcoran Group, which received the “Equality at Work Award” from the New York State Empire State Pride Agenda, among other accolades. Liebman is a member of the American Cancer Society’s CEOs Against Cancer, a founding board member of Wipe Out Leukemia Forever Foundation and serves on the board of the USS Intrepid Foundation and supports BASF Inner City Scholarship Fund.
