Trendsetters: Executive Women
Drawn to the Business
She spent 11 years with Codina before moving to LNR Property, the Miami-based real estate company, and then last year joined Gibson Development, a small, Miami-based concern.
Hernandez, 47, runs the tenant buildout at Gibson’s Sam Remo, a 180,000-sq.-ft. mixed-use development in Coral Gables, and is project director for Park Place, a 185,000-sq.-ft. office and retail project expected to break ground this year in Doral.
Hernandez still gets to dabble in architectural drawing when working on interior space plans but prefers the business side of development and the world of land, construction and customer issues.
Hernandez is Cuba-born, Miami-raised and a University of Miami grad. “I’m definitely a Miami girl.”
