SitusAMC Power Pro: Ashley Wallace
Name: Ashley Wallace
Title: Business Management Professional
Office: Jersey City, New Jersey
Day-to-Day: I’m a customer service representative at Hanover Street Capital, a SitusAMC subsidiary focused on supporting Deutsche Bank’s CRE business. I provide hands-on, tailored customer experience and act as a third-party liaison with our finance teams to support a suite of full-circle accounting responsibilities.
Home Is: Jersey City, New Jersey. I moved here for work, but I’m a born Texan.
Before SitusAMC: I’ve been with the company for a little over nine years. I previously worked for a private equity firm, focused on distressed assets, so I’ve always worked in the commercial real estate space.
A Meaningful Mentor: My grandmother
I landed on the career path I’m in by chance, actually. In the past, I interned for my grandmother who was a controller at a real estate company. She was the first person to show me the ropes and teach me about accounting. My manager Peter is another professional mentor. We’ve been working together for five years and he played an important role in helping me land the role I have today.
Greatest Strength: Fearlessness
I’m always open to new opportunities and challenges. I’m not really afraid to dive in headfirst when I’m faced with a challenge. I think it’s because I don’t really think about the failure component. When I relocated from Texas to New Jersey, for instance, my excitement about the opportunity superseded my fear of moving to a new city where I had no family or real safety net.
Favorite Way to Unwind: Cycling – I just hit my 350th ride! When I'm not working out aggressively, I also love to go to Broadway shows, museums, and concerts. I live just outside of Manhattan, so there’s always plenty to do on weekends.
Currently Learning: To cook
Cooking requires a lot of patience. On weekdays, I’m usually too tired to make an effort, but on the weekends I like to try new dishes. I’ve managed to recreate a surprisingly good barbecue recipe. Another go-to is lemon pasta, which is super easy to make.
Dream Travel Destination: I’d love to visit Iceland. My dream is to rent a camper and drive along the Ring Road, taking all in the sights – especially the northern lights.
