Greysteel Washington D.C. Executive Lunch Series

May 8th, 2018 by Rebecca Wiley

On April 26th 2018, Greysteel hosted an Executive Lunch Series event at Bourbon Steak in the Four Seasons Hotel, Washington D.C. The event brought together 35 of the region’s leaders of public and private real estate companies to discuss current projects and market trends amongst peers.


Greysteel CEO Ari Firoozabadi and JBG SMITH Properties (NYSE:JBGS) CEO Matt Kelly discussed Matt’s experience in the industry and how JBG SMITH has transformed into a publicly traded REIT traded on the NYSE.

Matt explained how he made his way into the commercial real estate industry (after graduating from HBS) and what he has experienced at JBG Smith, in particular the transformation of a fund based business model into one with perpetual capital and investor alignment as a REIT. The event concluded with a lively Q & A orchestrated by Ari between Matt and guests.

Greysteel looks forward to continuing to engage its clients throughout the United States by hosting the industry’s premier executive real estate focused event.
