Cissy Smith, RPA1996 | BOMA-Atlanta / BOMA Georgia Presidents
In the mid-1970s, Smith began a career as an assistant manager of the Omni International complex—now known as the CNN Center—in downtown Atlanta. Smith assisted in seeing the complex through a transitional and often challenging time. After a short stint with a property management firm in Nashville, TN, Smith came back to Atlanta to work for Carter & Associates. There, she managed Northcreek Office Park, where she aimed to make tenants, large (IBM) and smaller, happy, especially during a period of renovations. Following this time period, Smith transitioned to Peterson Properties. In 1995, Smith joined Koll–now part of CBRE—where she managed the Delta Air Lines Corporate campus.
