Globe St. has acknowledged BGC Advantage‘s very own Holly Knight as a Women of Influence in Development for her dedication to affordable housing development and her tireless commitment to her residents.
Welcome to our 2020 edition of Women of Influence. As we have been doing for many years now, we have based our selection of nearly 200 candidates on such criteria as career achievements, community outreach and mentorship within the industry. And as we experienced in previous years, we found it hard, to say nothing of humbling, to sift through the applications and select just the right nominees. As you will see as you flip through the following pages, these women come from diverse backgrounds with a wide array of specialties. What they have in common is they have all made a distinctive mark in commercial real estate.
HOLLY KNIGHT Throughout Holly Knight’s more than 25 year industry career, she has advocated for affordable housing. In 2015, she formed BGC Advantage to acquire, create and rehabilitate housing communities. As CEO, she partners with non-profit and housing authority entities, and has completed 65 affordable housing transactions, resulting in more than 3,800 units. She remains committed to bettering residents’ lives, while integral to each development’s financing. Through her limitless creativity, she ensures every project detail is carefully selected for maximum livability and sustainability. She closed the largest multifamily tax-exempt bond deal in Mississippi, and last year, she expanded the company’s footprint to 13 states across seven new markets.
