Green Street Announces Executive Promotions

Newport Beach, CA – October 25, 2016: Green Street’s board recently announced the promotion of two key members of the firm’s executive team, Craig Leupold and Jim Sullivan.

Craig has been promoted to the position of Chief Executive Officer, following his accomplishments as President of Green Street Advisors. A 23-year veteran of the firm, he has helped oversee the tremendous success of Green Street and its evolution into a premier research, analytical, and advisory firm in the commercial real estate industry.  As CEO, Craig will continue to bring best practices to all segments of the company, as well as explore strategic opportunities to support the firm’s growth.

Jim Sullivan, a 22-year veteran of the firm, has been awarded the title of President of Advisory & Consulting, following his leadership and contributions as Managing Director of Green Street’s Advisory Group since 2014. Jim’s accomplishments since taking over the Advisory group, after serving as the firm’s head of U.S. REIT Research, have been nothing short of spectacular.

Green Street enjoys a large and talented team of professionals, who have propelled the firm to be looked to by clients as a first stop for expert guidance and advice within the commercial real estate industry. Craig and Jim intend to build upon the success of the team to further expand the firm’s product offerings and services, and geographic reach across borders.

Green Street Co-founder Mike Kirby will continue to play an active role leading the firm’s research efforts as Chairman and Director of Research. Green Street is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between public capital markets and the private real estate market. The North Star that has long guided Green Street’s strategy – commercial real estate is a desirable asset class and listed REITs are an excellent way to access it – remains as bright today as it was 30 years ago.
