April 17, 2013 BP MARKOWITZ COMMENDS BRUCE RATNER, CONGRATULATES MARYANNE GILMARTIN Brooklyn celebrates the ascendancy of MaryAnne Gilmartin

to President and CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies. With this promotion, Ms. Gilmartin has shattered the glass ceiling, reaffirming herself as the leading female real estate and development executive in the country. Bravo to Bruce Ratner and Forest City Ratner for recognizing that when you want a job done right, you give it to a woman. Throughout his career, Bruce has dedicated himself to improving the lives of Brooklynites and New Yorkers—his vision and commitment to investing in our borough not only provided the lifeblood for Barclays Center, but was a driving force behind Brooklyn’s continued renaissance. I have every confidence that under the capable leadership of MaryAnne Gilmartin, the love affair between Brooklyn and Forest City Ratner will continue to grow and flourish.
