Internship Leads to Successful Career in Shopping Center Management for Alumnus
Wesley Rebisz graduated from Berkeley College in 2008 with a B.S. degree in Business Administration - Marketing, and recently earned an M.B.A. from William Paterson University. He credits the launching point of his career in shopping center management to the internship Berkeley College connected him with at General Growth Properties (GGP). While the company’s high-quality retail property portfolio includes 120 malls across the United States, Mr. Rebisz’s career began with a marketing assistant internship at GGP’s Willowbrook Mall property in Wayne, NJ.
“This was my introduction to commercial real-estate property management within the retail Real Estate Investment Trust industry,” Mr. Rebisz said. The internship led him to a full-time position as a Common Area Coordinator there that was followed by various promotions through the years.
Mr. Rebisz now serves as the General Manager at GGP’s White Marsh Mall property in White Marsh, MD. In this role, he manages a multi-disciplinary team that is responsible for day-to-day operations of the shopping center. He also manages related expenses and annual revenue goals.
