Two Plaza Companies employees have been selected by a prominent national real estate publication as key leaders and influencers in the real estate industry.

Real Estate Forum, a must-read for more than 140,000 industry professionals in all segments of the commercial property business, featured in its November issue Plaza employees Dyanna Bentley and Perry Gabuzzi.

Bentley has been selected as a Southwest Woman of Influence by the magazine’s editors. The November issue featuring Bentley will be distributed at the magazine’s RealShare Phoenix event. Bentley – senior vice president of property and facilities management at Plaza Companies – has 30 years of commercial and multi-family real estate property management experience. Along with her associates and support staff, Bentley is responsible for all aspects of the fiscal and physical management of Plaza’s Property Management Division and its portfolio of office and medical projects.

Gabuzzi – senior vice president, brokerage services for Plaza Companies – has been selected as an Emerging Healthcare leader by the magazine. He achieves significant cost and time savings for his clients while specializing in creating and implementing comprehensive real estate solutions for users of medical and office space.
