Chairman & CEO
Turnberry

Jackie Soffer is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Turnberry, one of the country’s premier real estate development and hospitality groups. Founded more than 50 years ago, the South Florida-based company specializes in large-scale lifestyle developments within the hospitality, retail, residential, and commercial sectors.

Soffer has helped evolve Turnberry from a regional leader into one of the most creative and dynamic organizations in real estate. She has transformed the landmark Aventura Mall from a classic regional shopping mall into one of the country’s premier lifestyle destinations. Soffer has attracted world-class retailers such as Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Cartier, Gucci, and Fendi, and integrated them with museum quality contemporary art by Carsten Holler, Ugo Rondinone, The Haas Brothers, Jorge Pardo, Louise Bourgeois, and more. Soffer has continued to magnify this vision with a new tri-level, 315,000 square-foot wing that showcases the next evolution of experiential retail.

Turnberry also owns and operates the legendary Fontainebleau Miami Beach, one of the world’s top destination resorts; JW Marriott Turnberry Isle Miami, a 300-acre resort and country club; and the new JW Marriott Nashville, a 533-room hotel.

In addition, Soffer and Turnberry are partnering with LeFrak to develop the 184-acre SoLē Mia in North Miami, which will include 1.4 million square feet of retail, 37 acres of parks, 4,390 residences, crystal lagoons, a hotel, dining outlets, and market-leading entertainment experiences.

Soffer also serves as an Independent Director on the Board of Washington Prime Group, a retail real estate investment trust with a portfolio of 120 enclosed regional malls and open-air lifestyle community centers.
