Former Greenrock CEO Inducted Into ULI Championship Team

TORONTO, July 4, 2022 – We are proud to announce that the Toronto Urban Land Institute (ULI) has bestowed Gloria Mogavero the honour of joining its Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) Championship Team. The WLI Championship Team is dedicated to spotlighting influential women in the Toronto real estate industry who exhibit strong leadership skills and support the development of a healthier, more prosperous and equitable region.

Gloria joined Greenrock in 2010 and served as Chief Executive Officer for over a decade before retiring this past April. She has 45 years of experience at some of Canada’s top real estate leaders and developers such as CB Richard Ellis as Operations Manager for a 3 million square foot commercial portfolio for the Bank of Nova Scotia, which included Scotia Plaza, and at Greenwin Property Management Inc. as Executive Vice-President.

Gloria first began her career as a secretary and went on to take a Chartered Accountant (CA) course where she was one of only a handful of women. She learned quickly it would take a great deal of confidence, determination, and perseverance to make it in this industry. She spent many long hours working a full day in the office and going to night school in the evenings. It took an immense amount of hard work to accomplish the success she has achieved to date. She now uses her voice and leadership skills to shape communities that are inclusive and provide equitable opportunities for all to succeed.

In her time as CEO at Greenrock, Gloria played a critical role in the repositioning plan for Postmedia Place (365 Bloor St. E). Her efforts increased the value of the building three-fold over five years and led to Postmedia Place being awarded the BOMA Canada National Earth Award.

Gloria was also instrumental in implementing a company culture that makes giving back a priority. Thanks to her influence, Greenrock earned the first Company Culture Award of Excellence and the Outstanding Community Service Award at the 2019 Federation of Rental Housing Providers of Ontario MAC Gala.

It was this same community-minded approach to real estate that earned Greenrock the 2021 Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations (CFAA) Rental Housing Provider of the Year Award. Gloria was deeply involved in the development of Greenrock’s multi-faceted COVID-19 response which encompassed a $4 Million relief fund with donations to over 50 Canadian non-profits and $600 each of grocery gift cards to all suites in Greenrock’s 2000-suite residential portfolio. Greenrock also offered a last month’s rent program whereby residents had the option to use their last month’s rent as a credit towards upcoming rent payments if they were struggling financially during the pandemic.

Gloria shared in a recent interview for International Women’s Day that “it was always [her] dream to be part of a company that valued excellence in service to its clients, residents, tenants and staff.” She looks forward to continuing fostering mentorship opportunities for other young women in the real estate industry as she fully embraces this new chapter of retirement.

Greenrock Named Finalist for CFAA Rental Housing Provider Award

TORONTO, May 12, 2022 – Greenrock was announced as a finalist for the 2022 Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations (CFAA) Rental Housing Provider of the Year Award within the 10,000 units or fewer category in recognition of its commitment to create healthy and sustainable communities. The announcement was made at the CFAA Awards Dinner on May 10th.

Greenrock owns and manages two prominent residential communities in the heart of Toronto, including Davisville Village just steps from Davisville Station and Village Green near Church and Wellesley. This is the third consecutive year the CFAA has selected Greenrock as a finalist in the category and last year, Greenrock was announced as the winner of the 2021 Rental Housing Provider of the Year Award.

“Securing a spot on the shortlist for the Rental Housing Provider of the Year Award is a fantastic accomplishment for our team at Greenrock and we are so honoured to have won last year. We extend our greatest thanks to our team members who continue to work so hard to deliver the best service to our residents, even throughout the pandemic,” says Barbara Rodgers, Greenrock CEO. 

Greenrock created a new task force in 2021 dedicated to establishing an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy designed to serve as a transparent and actionable roadmap to create strong and healthy communities for people to both live and work in Toronto.

A key focus of Greenrock’s environmental vision is minimizing its ecological footprint to operate as sustainably as possible. To accomplish this, the team actively works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water, and energy usage across all properties in its residential and commercial portfolios. Greenrock was named one of the first partners of the City of Toronto’s new Green Will Initiative (GWI), which is dedicated to accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from buildings in Toronto.

Greenrock IMPACT is the company’s charitable arm that champions all endeavours related to supporting the wellness of Greenrock’s residents, team, and community members. Greenrock IMPACT’s COVID-19 Relief Fund has exceeded $4 million in resident and community support since March 2020, including donations to over 50 registered Canadian charities in the categories of food security, mental health, Black Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities, LGBTQ2S+ communities, senior care, shelters and outreach support, and women’s health. Greenrock also created a Last Month’s Rent (LMR) program that gave residents facing financial challenges the option to use their LMR as a credit towards their rent payments.

Supporting BIPOC communities and promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are two important commitments prioritized in the development of Greenrock’s social vision. These commitments encompass many social wellness initiatives, including a mandatory Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion workshop series for team members to develop skills to actively recognize and resist bias. Greenrock also provided scholarships for 10 BIPOC students facing significant barriers to their education through ONE City Fund.

As a small privately-owned landlord, Greenrock is fortunate to have the ability to take a grassroots approach to create change in local communities with the hope that it will inspire others in the real estate industry to follow suit and adopt a more sustainable, community-minded approach to property management.

TORONTO, March 16th, 2022– In support of the ongoing relief efforts in Ukraine, Greenrock IMPACT announced today it will donate $10,000 to the Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal through the Greenrock Charitable Trust.

Donations to the Red Cross will support immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and other critical humanitarian activities both in Ukraine and surrounding countries, including support for displaced residents who have fled the country.

International Women’s Day Q&A: Greenrock Real Estate Leaders Share Their Greatest Challenges and Triumphs

Taking risks, knowing your worth, and never giving up are three markers of a woman who will accomplish incredible feats in her career. Two fearless leaders on Greenrock’s Executive Team are living proof of this testament: Barbara Rodgers, Chief Executive Officer, and Gloria Mogavero, Officer of Administration.

Barbara headshot

Barbara has over 20 years of progressive leadership and operational management experience with many of Canada’s leading real estate owners and developers, including Skyline Group of Companies, Riocan REIT, Cadillac Fairview, and her role as President and co-founder of Arcturus Realty Corporation.

Gloria was the former CEO of Greenrock from 2010-2021 and has 45 years of experience in the real estate industry. Prior to joining Greenrock, she served as the Alliance Director of CB Richard Ellis as Operations Manager for a 3 million square foot commercial portfolio for the Bank of Nova Scotia, which included Scotia Plaza. Previously, Gloria was the Executive Vice-President of Greenwin Property Management Inc.

Both Executives have experienced their fair share of discrimination and unfair treatment in the early years of their career, which took a tremendous amount of perseverance to overcome. In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8th, Barbara and Gloria share invaluable lessons about recognizing and overcoming bias and standing up for what they deserve.

What inspired you to get into the real estate/property management industry?

B:   I wish I could say that there was some inspirational moment, event, or leader that spurred my interest in the real estate industry, but the truth is that I had completed my business degree and launched my career in the trade show and conference industry and was unsure where my next opportunity might lie. I had the great fortune to be introduced to the then-President of Cadillac Fairview, Peter Sharpe, who shared that they were launching a Management Training program, which led to an offer to join the program. My experience in that training program opened the door to managing shopping centres for Cadillac Fairview and all of the opportunities that followed.

G: I was working as a student accountant for a Chartered Accountant (CA) firm and was assigned mostly real estate clients. I enjoyed the variety of accounting challenges that came with preparing financial statements for real estate owners. I left the CA program to work as a Controller for a client who owned office buildings. I have remained in the real estate industry throughout my 45-year career.

Have you faced any bias or challenges being a woman throughout your career?

B:  Many. A primary example that comes to mind occurred while I was managing a shopping centre and discovered that I was expecting my second child. It caused a ripple through the management team as there was no plan for how to deal with a manager being on maternity leave. I felt that my commitment to the company was questioned, and that I was causing a problem. Not long after returning from that maternity leave, I left the company and industry (for several years), but then was recruited to return to that role a few years later to cover a former colleague’s maternity leave. Times had started to change!

Another experience of a different nature occurred years later. I was in a senior operational role with a major client portfolio. The client service lead left and a new lead was to be appointed. My colleague, a man who was leading the leasing team, was approached to take on the role but declined as he had also decided to depart. I was then approached (finally!) and was aware of the compensation that had been offered to my male colleague. The offer to me was substantially less. I knew that I was the better candidate for the role and was determined to be compensated at the same level that had been offered to my male colleague – and I was.  It was an invaluable learning experience for me.

G: Unfortunately starting my career in the late 70’s I experienced a great deal of bias and inappropriate behaviour. One of my first experiences was as a student accountant going to a real estate developer who promptly called the senior partner at my firm to say, “You sent a woman”, to which the partner replied, ‘Yes”. The client then said, “Women can’t be accountants, they are not logical”. 

When I joined a real estate developer as Controller, I would have contractors and financial institutions asking to speak to my boss instead of dealing with me. Over the years I was the only woman at a boardroom table and, in the early days, I was expected to serve coffee, take minutes, and clean up even though there was other staff to do so. 

Inappropriate behaviour by male bosses or clients was a challenge for young women throughout the 80’s and 90’s. I made it clear that I was not going to accept any disrespect because I was female. 

What is one piece of advice you would share with your younger self if you could?

B: Take risks, listen, learn. Put your hand up. Ask questions, don’t be afraid of what you don’t know or that others will find out what you don’t know. You can do this. Stand up for yourself and others.

G: I would tell my younger self to have a better sense of humour and to not let the bias harden me so that I wouldn’t share anything personal so as not to appear weak.

What successes/accomplishments are you most proud of in your career to date?

B: I am proud of my success at working hard, building my career through successive roles that led to me becoming President of Arcturus. I asked for the role, which led to my appointment – something I’m certain that I would not have been brave enough to do early in my career. After positioning our company for acquisition, and closing the deal, I decided to walk away. That was a difficult decision and yet I knew it was right for me – and I have never regretted it. 

During my tenure there, we built and reinforced an overwhelmingly positive culture. We were unique in the industry. Third party property management is a tough business, but everyone in the company knew that they were valued, that we heard their voices and how they contributed to our success. At our senior management level, there were twelve people sitting at the table – 6 women and 6 men. We were exceptionally proud of the success of women in our organization. One of those six women decided to leave the company as we were going through the sale process. Years later, she shared with me that she wished she’d valued our culture and how we treated each other (the entire team, over 500 people) more and that she knew now that it was unlikely she’d have that experience again. That was such a meaningful moment for me and a strong incentive to continue applying these practices with future teams.

G: My first accomplishment of which I was proud was when I reached a salary level of $100,000 which only 2% of women made in Canada at the time.  I have had many accomplishments. One is the repositioning of Postmedia Place and the subsequent awards it has won from BOMA. To win the National Earth Award in 2021 out of all the office buildings in Canada was something for which the Greenrock team and our partner could be very proud. My proudest achievement is when Greenrock won the first FRPO Company Culture Award of Excellence in 2019.  It was always my dream to be part of a company who valued excellence in service to its clients, residents, tenants and staff. As CEO of Greenrock in 2019, this award demonstrated we had succeeded.


What makes you feel most empowered about being a woman in the industry?

B: Looking back, I am appreciative of having been provided opportunities to grow and become a leader, to be in a position to now, in turn, provide growth opportunities to my female colleagues. I find it empowering to increasingly be surrounded by a cohort that looks very different than it did a few decades ago. I’m proud of our collective achievements.

G: I am most empowered because there are now many women leaders in the industry and at meeting tables. Attending industry conferences now are more women and the conferences are finally featuring women panelists and chairs. 

Do you have a female role model that has inspired you within or outside the industry?

B: I don’t – and wish I’d had that as I moved through my career. It’s crucial that top executives within the industry place considerable effort into being role models and mentors, actively working to remove access to barriers and biases, and cultivating positive environments where our colleagues and those new to the industry can succeed.

G: Throughout my career I did not have many women colleagues in Executive roles. Over the last fifteen years I had met many and value networking with them.  I have been most inspired by Beverleigh Aquilanti, a coach and consultant to public, private, large, and small companies. She has helped me become a better leader and has given me confidence to open up and share more of myself with my colleagues. Her counsel is always measured. She is very wise, and I am grateful to know her.

What is one way you are supporting the #BreakTheBias movement in your own life/career?

B: My hope is to make a difference by employing a practice that acknowledges bias, then conscientiously works against it. I work at challenging myself to identify any biases that I may have – and look to work beyond them. Through educating myself and taking in full stride any advice or lessons I receive, I am better able to help develop those who are now actively seeking to grow within the industry. I strive to be a receptive and supportive leader; I want anyone who is struggling with barriers to feel that they have an ally.

G: In my professional career, I have always tried to ensure that women are paid the same as men in similar roles and are given the opportunities for challenging tasks and promotion if they wish. In my personal life, together with my husband, I have raised a son who has great respect for women and who is a true partner in his marriage. I have tried to lead by example.


Greenrock’s Break the Bias pledge: We are committed to offering mentorship and leadership opportunities that empower women and align them for success, creating a positive company culture that is inclusive and embraces diversity.

Mental Health, BIPOC, Shelters Voted Top Causes for Greenrock Holiday Donations

TORONTO, January 10, 2022 – Half a dozen Toronto charities were gifted over $100,000 this winter thanks to the support of hundreds of Greenrock residents and tenants across the city who voted for the causes most meaningful to them.   

The 2021 Greenrock IMPACT Resident and Tenant Donation recipients include Caribbean African Canadian (CAFCAN) Social Services, Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre, The Neighbourhood Group/St. Stephen’s Community House, First Interfaith Out of the Cold Program, Progress Place Clubhouse, and Distress Centres of Greater Toronto.  

The Greenrock IMPACT Resident and Tenant Donation is an annual program that began in 2018 and directly involves those living and working in Greenrock buildings in the voting process to decide which causes and charities are most in need of support during the holidays.  

“We feel truly gratified to support the causes most meaningful to our residents and tenants,” says Greenrock Chief Executive Officer Barbara Rodgers. “How fortunate we are to have an abundance of caring and engaged community members in our Greenrock communities.”  

The causes with the highest votes by residents and tenants this year were mental health, BIPOC communities, and shelters/emergency housing. Greenrock’s IMPACT Committee collaborated with the Executive Team and Board of Directors to nominate six registered, local, non-political, non-religious charities to receive donations through the Greenrock Charitable Trust.  

This time last year, Greenrock donated over $100,000 to Across Boundaries, Ontario Native Women’s Association, Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, Fort York Food Bank, and The Redwood as part of the 2020 Greenrock IMPACT Resident and Tenant Donation

Greenrock Team Sports Staches for Movember, Donates $10K to Men’s Health Charities

Greenrock is turning its attention to men’s health on November 30th, which marks both Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving and generosity, and the final day of Movember.  

Movember is a month-long global event in November that raises awareness of testicular cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young Canadian men, and prostate cancer, which affects 1 in 9 Canadian men.  

The movement also focuses on mental health, which is an especially important topic during the pandemic. Prolonged isolation can heighten feelings of loneliness and depression, and shame is often a barrier that prevents men from reaching out for support. This year’s Movember movement is all about digging deeper and creating safe spaces to have meaningful conversations with the men in our lives.  

In support of Movember, Greenrock donated a total of $10,000 to Prostate Cancer Canada and Testicular Cancer Canada on behalf of the Greenrock team through the Greenrock Charitable Trust. 

Greenrock team members were also encouraged to help raise awareness of the cause by growing facial hair or flaunting faux moustaches on sticks.  

We thank our team for ditching their razors in support of this important cause and helping us take the stigma out of these conversations. There are helpful tool kits and supports available on the Movember website to learn more about the early signs of prostate and testicular cancer.  

Greenrock’s charitable arm, Greenrock IMPACT, is devoted to giving back to local charities and causes like Movember through annual initiatives and donations. To learn more, please visit https://www.greenrockreal.ca/impact/
