40 Under 40: Andrea Blue, General Manager, Galleria at Sunset/Brookfield Properties

Andrea Blue

The first African American woman serving as general manager of the 1.1 million-square-foot shopping center Galleria at Sunset, Andrea Blue seamlessly cultivates tenant relationships that lead to high-occupancy rates, minimal turnover and renewal of long-term leases.

Blue’s work allows her to implement new ideas while giving a nod to the history and traditions that reflect the property and the community. During her 19-year career, Blue has won four prestigious TOBY awards (The Outstanding Building of the Year), yet she is most proud of introducing diverse holiday traditions to the property—bringing to life multicultural experiences that celebrate the many different cultures and backgrounds of Southern Nevadans.

In her spare time, Blue enjoys giving back to children. She serves on the board of the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation and is the committee chair of the Able-tility resource group for Brookfield Properties.
