Susie Glass is leaving Fortune International Group at the end of this week to start her own development consulting firm, The Real Deal has learned.

Glass, vice president of marketing at Fortune, is launching a new company with a financial backer, whom she declined to name. Jennie King, senior marketing director, who has worked for Fortune since 2009, is being promoted to replace Glass.

King has led the company’s marketing strategies and public relations campaigns, working on projects that include Jade Ocean, Jade Beach, Midtown Miami and Paramount Bay, according to a statement from Fortune president and CEO Edgardo Defortuna.

Glass joined Fortune in September 2016 from Douglas Elliman, where she was executive vice president of development sales and marketing.

She declined to provide details about the new venture, but said she hopes to work with Fortune on the new development side. She joined the company to gain development experience, Glass said in 2016. Her resume also includes more than five years with Tony Cho, three years at Cervera Real Estate and three with Elliman.

Defortuna said in the statement that Glass is keeping her real estate license with Fortune, and wished her well in her next step.

On the new development side, Fortune recently completed Jade Signature and is building Ritz-Carlton Residences, both condo towers in Sunny Isles Beach. The company is handling sales and marketing for Una Residences, Brickell Flatiron and Missoni Baia, among others.
