Barrie Scardina

Americas Leader, Retail • United States


Barrie Scardina joined global real estate solutions firm Cushman & Wakefield as Executive Managing Director and Head of Retail Services, Americas in November of 2019, working closely with clients, local retail professionals, and the Americas Retail Services platform team. In her Americas leadership role, she is responsible for building stronger retail client relationships and deepening the firm’s retail expertise, including expanding retailer tenant representation strategies and agency leasing opportunities. Barrie’s breath of retail experience drives her to analyze business opportunities through a consumer-centric lens. She consistently focuses on delivering value to the client’s bottom line by evaluating conversion-driving technology, omni-channel integration, and business valuation. This unique approach to client relationships ensures that the firm more closely aligns with brands on areas of opportunity relative to site selection, portfolio optimization, and space utilization. Barrie is results-oriented, focused on transforming the retail landscape by strategically driving revenue, identifying operational efficiencies, and growing profitability.

Prior to her appointment at Cushman & Wakefield, Barrie spent three decades leading vital retail initiatives across a variety of world-class organizations including Polo Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne, The Children’s Place, and Tory Burch. She brings more than 15 years of executive experience to her current role with the firm, including expertise in creating long-range strategies, business forecasting, omni-channel inventory management, and system implementation and integration. Most recently Barrie was with Calvin Klein, where she led the company’s North American Retail Division as President, setting strategic direction for merchandising, consumer experience, and operational improvements.

Throughout her career, Barrie has focused on mentoring and developing talent and creating cultures that foster collaboration and equality. She has held several diversity and inclusion roles including leading the LGBTQ business resource group and participating in the Women’s Leadership Council at Calvin Klein, and at Cushman & Wakefield she currently serves as a council member for their Women’s Integrated Network Tri-state Chapter and is an ally member of UNITY, their LGBTQ employee resource group.
