NORA LEVY, Owner
Nora Levy, creator and owner of Shopping Partnership since 1992, merged her career in shopping center marketing with her experience in school volunteering to launch this successful partnership between shopping centers and schools. Nearly $6 million in funds to K-12 schools have been donated through Shopping Partnership’s school rewards programs.
Nora started her career in shopping center marketing following graduation from California State University, Fullerton with a BA in Communications/Advertising, and a Minor in Business Administration. Nora oversaw the marketing programs at Long Beach Plaza, Santa Anita Fashion Park and Los Cerritos Center for 10 years on behalf of The Hahn Company & TrizecHahn. Nora won numerous awards for her shopping center programs, including the prestigious MAXI award from the International Council of Shopping Centers and special commendation from the governor of California for EASE (Easy Access Shopping Experience) - a program designed to enhance the shopping experience for patrons with disabilities. Her awards include Marketing Director of the Year and Management Team of the Year, as well as many other awards from her employer and shopping center trade organizations.
Nora actively volunteered at her children’s schools and in the community. She matched her volunteer experience with her shopping center expertise to create a symbiotic program that benefits schools and businesses. As an owner operator, she continually adjusts her business model to meet the changing landscape of shopping centers, while striving to provide much-needed resources to local schools.
