The past 18 months of Sarah Landsberger’s professional journey have been nothing short of groundbreaking. In May 2019, she transitioned from the California branch of Lendlease, a construction, real estate and investment group based out of Sydney, Australia, to Webcor, a general contractor with offices throughout California. Since then, she has pioneered a new role as the Southern California region’s first Commercial and Risk Manager and been appointed Project Director on a $400 million residential tower in downtown Los Angeles.
Landsberger’s unique blend of global experience and recent experience with California construction allowed her to identify a gap in the industry. Her ultimate vision is the appointment of a commercial and risk lead on all Webcor projects. This would guarantee a proactively led approach to accountability for fulfilling a project’s commercial function, including optimizing margin, while also protecting the business from commercial risk.
