VP Sales & Marketing at Zephyr
Industry: Professional Services
Summary: Frankhuizen is vice president of sales and marketing at San Diego-based real estate development company Zephyr. She’s been with the company for almost two years and is the youngest and only female on the executive team. The post with Zephyr, Frankhuizen said, allows her to bring a “fresh perspective” to the branding of the company’s residential and mixed-use developments. “One of the hallmarks of our company is we don’t fit in a box. We’re opportunistic. We play,” she said.
Also a licensed real estate agent, Frankhuizen oversees the sales and marketing efforts for Zephyr projects including the 60-unit Bankers Hill project The Park; the 35-unit SummerHouse Carlsbad; and South Cove, a 168-unit community under construction in Dana Point.
Frankhuizen was previously a leasing manager for Carmel Partners, handling more than 2,800 contracts and closing more than $15 million in sales, earning her the distinction of Associate of the Year in 2014. She’s still active with her alma mater, San Diego State University, as a mentor with the Aztec Mentorship Program and as a past executive president of the SDSU Young Alumni Association. “I’m really into sales improvement and listening to insights from thought leaders in various industries. There are a lot of resources out there,” she said. “I just hope to have the opportunity to share those messages through my work.” – Jennifer McEntee
