Ms. Cope began her career in commercial property management, beginning with third party work in Los Angeles.

From there, Ms. Cope joined The Irvine Company in Orange County where she managed a portfolio of office space in excess of 2 million square feet and consisting of industrial, flex and class “A” office buildings, including a 600,000 square foot ground up development in Irvine.
Most recently, Ms. Cope was the Global Leasing Manager at Broadcom Corporation overseeing a real estate portfolio of 3.5 million square feet. Using her expertise in commercial real estate, she validated leasing requirements with occupancy and growth planning, strategically selected new sites, and negotiated aggressive terms with the ultimate lease flexibility. In addition to securing leases at Broadcom’s main campuses in Northern and Southern California, Ms. Cope negotiated international leases in countries such as China, India, Israel, Canada, and Australia. Traveling to many of these places, Ms. Cope had hands on real estate experience within these international markets.
