Sophie Kanabay joined GPEC’s Business Development team in July 2021 while pursuing her Bachelor of Science degree in sustainable built environments with an emphasis in real estate through the University of Arizona, which she will complete in May 2022.  Sophie is excited to be a part if the GPEC team, as it is her long-term goal to help attract, encourage, and advocate for the growth of sustainable businesses and real estate throughout the Greater Phoenix area.

Prior to joining GPEC, Sophie was working for Airpark Signs & Graphics, a local architectural sign company which has been serving the Greater Phoenix area for over 35 years.  Throughout her career as a businesswoman and student, she has become accustomed to successfully juggling multiple projects and has an excellent track record of building new business, forging strong relationships with clients, developing partnerships, and increasing company revenue through innovative and creative strategies.  Sophie believes the major contributor to this success is her talent as a persuasive communicator; someone who can speak to clients in terms they understand and build the case for the brand she represents.
