More than three decades ago, Susan Cheng didn’t have plans for a future in the real estate business. Today, as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Mohr Capital, she is a key member of the company and serves as an advisor for the Mohr Family Office. Susan is known for her tenacious character and ability to collaborate with others while remaining fair and respectful.
Although it is fair to say every day holds a new challenge, the opportunity to work on diverse projects involving finance, operations or something entirely new is what she finds makes her position both interesting and rewarding. Susan’s primary responsibilities at Mohr Capital are to oversee business operations, manage the accounting and finance functions and work closely with the company’s investment team.
Susan gained exposure to the real estate business while auditing numerous major real estate companies as an auditor for Ernst & Young. From there, she developed a passion for the business and industry credibility while working for investment advisory firms and developers. There is no doubt in her mind that what she learned in her past positions became the building blocks to where she is now. As a lifelong learner, Susan views learning to be a fun exercise that never ends.
Susan completed her Master of Business Administration from the University of Dallas after obtaining her Bachelor of Commerce degree in Accounting from Concordia University in Montreal. Susan is a CFA Charterholder and Certified Public Accountant. She also holds additional professional certifications such as the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential.
Susan enjoys traveling internationally, naming Italy as one of her favorite destinations. She’s taking Italian lessons and likes to converse fluently with locals when she visits the country. She also enjoys playing golf now that she has given up marathon running.
