A new role for Notay! 

February 29th 2012

So it's official! I am leaping into this leap year with gusto - and as an independent consultant trading as Alex Notay Limited. I've said a fond farewell to all my wonderful colleagues at ULI and the many inspirational members I've worked with there but am really looking forward to the greater flexibility and opportunity that I hope will come from running my own business. Luckily for me, I get the best of both worlds and will still be involved with ULI on some specific projects. Watch this space for details of my other roles.  

Check out the ULI Europe digital newsletter for the formal announcement: and please do take a look around my new website for details of what I can do to help you and your business to be more effective and successful in 2012 and beyond. 

Thank you for all the good wishes and encouragement - look forward to working with some of you soon! 

Best wishes,





ULI Europe

Urban Land Institute Vice-President Alexandra Notay transitions to new role as independent advisor


The Urban Land Institute (ULI) announced today that Alexandra Notay, Vice President for Strategic Programmes, is progressing to a new role as an independent advisor on real estate and urban development issues. Alex takes up her new independent advisor role from Monday 13 February.  


Alex joined ULI from central government in 2007 and established a new research department for ULI in Europe, publishing reports and books on a wide range of topics including market trends, demographics, infrastructure, affordable housing and sustainable development. 


In 2009, Alex was appointed the youngest ever Vice-President in ULI’s 75-year history to direct a number of global strategic programmes including LessEn, the ULI Urban Investment Network and the European advisory service panels. Alex has also helped to create a vibrant European Young Leaders programme and managed specific projects for the ULI UK Charitable Trust. 


Joe Montgomery, CEO of ULI Europe said: “Alex has contributed enormously to ULI’s growth during her four and a half years on the staff. She most certainly leaves ULI on a high having led our ground-breaking work in Moscow. This involved an advisory service panel with the Mayor of Moscow to peer review the city’s expansion plans, and the delivery of a hugely important Moscow Forum, which brought together public and private involvement in assessing the urban development and real estate issues facing the city. We at the ULI look forward to continuing our association with Alex on projects and programmes like these and we wish her every success with her new venture.”


Alex Notay said: “I will always be a passionate advocate for ULI and the positive impact we can have on cities and communities around the world. I am thrilled that I’ll be able to take this new step and remain involved with ULI and the fantastic people and projects that I’ve enjoyed so much.”
