Maria directs all daily operations and business practices for Skyline Commercial Management Inc., which manages the assets within the Skyline Industrial REIT and Skyline Retail REIT portfolios, totaling millions of square feet of light industrial and retail space across hundreds of properties Canada-wide. In her role, she is responsible for overseeing, directing and managing all internal operations, including financial budgets, staffing, acquisitions/dispositions processes, and project management. She leads dozens of Skyline Commercial staff across Skyline’s corporate offices in Ontario, as well as satellite teams in London, ON; Ottawa, ON; Montreal, QC; Calgary, AB; and Edmonton, AB.
Maria began her career at Skyline in 2007 as Office Manager, simultaneously taking on HR management tasks and lending support to Skyline’s acquisitions team. As Skyline grew, Maria’s role shifted to multi-residential business operations, and subsequently to overseeing operations for Skyline’s ever-growing commercial and retail asset portfolios.
Maria is passionate about empowering her staff, and she is very involved in the training procedures of her employees, having helped to develop the various training programs that introduce all property management staff to Skyline. She recognizes the importance of staying connected with the fast-paced Canadian commercial and retail real estate industry—in fact, the busy pace of her role is one of her favourite parts of her career. Most of all, Maria takes pride in helping to provide Skyline Commercial and Retail valued tenants with well-maintained and professional places to do business.
