Corinne Verdery

Chief Executive Officer

Corinne Verdery assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer of Caruso, one of the largest and most admired privately held real estate development and management companies in the U.S., in September 2022. As CEO, Verdery is focused on continuing the stellar performance and growth the company has achieved since it was founded 36 years ago.

Verdery joined Caruso in 2016 and was previously Chief Development Officer, overseeing Caruso’s development business which includes acquisitions, design, construction and tenant services. Focusing on doubling the size of the company and its offerings in Southern California, she oversaw the development of the Forbes double five-star resort Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito and Palisades Village, a first of its kind mixed-use project in Pacific Palisades, as well as the acquisition of new Caruso properties. In addition, she managed new zoning approvals for expansion of The Lakes in Thousand Oaks and directed the renovation of significant tenant spaces across the Caruso portfolio.

Verdery has more than 30 years of experience specializing in the industry. She joined Caruso from NBCUniversal, where she was the Chief Real Estate Development Officer. In that position, she was responsible for overseeing the 25-year multibillion-dollar NBCUniversal Evolution Plan, a vital component to the company’s overall long-term growth and success. Prior to that role, Verdery held various executive positions within the company for well over a decade, including a global role where she planned and built projects—ranging from hotels to theme parks—in major cities worldwide.

Verdery was also SVP of Oasis West Realty/Alagem Capital Group, where she successfully spearheaded the development and entitlement process of The Beverly Hilton and the five-star Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Beverly Hills, which included the passage of a citywide ballot, 19 public hearings and a voter referendum.

Verdery graduated magna cum laude from Pepperdine University Graziadio Business School and cum laude from USC School of Architecture, where she was the recipient of the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees for The Archer School for Girls, where her twin daughters graduated from this past Spring.
