At Fortune International Group, Andrea Greenberg is out, and Susie Glass is in.

Glass is now vice president of marketing at Fortune after spending about three years at Douglas Elliman, she told The Real Deal. She’s replacing Greenberg, who left the firm in August after more than 16 years. 

Glass is working in a similar role as at Elliman, where she was executive vice president of sales and marketing until last month. “I decided to leave Elliman because Fortune not only represents developers, but they are a developer themselves,” Glass told TRD.

She got her start with Tony Cho, who she worked for five and a half years. After that, Glass worked at Cervera Real Estate for three years until she joined Elliman in 2013.

Eventually, she plans to become a developer and now, the developer’s office is right next to hers, she said. Fortune’s reach in Latin America, which Glass said is crucial in Miami, was also a reason she left Elliman. At Fortune, she now oversees the company’s portfolio of developments and is in charge of corporate marketing efforts.

Douglas Elliman declined to comment on Glass’ departure and on who will replace her.

Edgardo Defortuna, president and CEO of Fortune International Group, said that it’s not unusual for top development marketing executives to move around. Former Fortune executive Andres Asion left in July, and Greenberg in August.

Asion, former head of development sales at Fortune, left in July for his own firm. He told TRD he plans to capitalize on the condo market slowdown after seven years with Fortune and 12 with Cervera.

Defortuna said he’s still in talks with candidates for Asion’s former position. He said change is sometimes necessary to bring in new ideas and evolve.
