A recovering Type-A New Yorker, Randi’s Manolos touched ground in the desert in 2001 and she has been going full speed (in heels) ever since.
After a successful career in advertising and global branding in NY, Randi shifted her focus to real estate development with the development of the Ice House Lofts in downtown Tucson.
Randi Dorman is passionate about downtown Tucson and arts and culture in the community here. She was President of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson for over 5 years and created a weekly email called “Randi’s Picks” that highlights events in Tucson, with a focus on the arts and downtown. In addition Randi does branding consulting with Bromberg Consulting and is the Chairwoman of the Downtown Tucson Partnership.
“You never know where life is going to take you, and if you are open to the possibilities, the journey can surprise you in wonderful ways. That is why I am passionate about showing what is possible through our developments.”
Randi’s favorite role is that of mom to Skye, who will be wearing her own Manolos sooner than we think.
