Sam Zell
Founder & Chairman
of Equity Group Investments

Sam Zell is a global, industry-agnostic entrepreneur and investor. He has a long track record of turning around troubled companies and assets, leading industry consolidations, and bringing companies to the public markets. Sam has stewarded dozens of companies across industries including: energy, logistics, manufacturing, communications, healthcare, and real estate.

He is a founding father of the modern REIT industry, and created three of the largest real estate investment trusts. One of them, Equity Office, sold for $39 billion in 2007 in the largest leveraged buyout at the time.

Sam was also a pioneer in investing in the emerging markets. He applied his commitment to strong governance to institutionalize companies in Latin America, and introduced the first Brazilian mall company and the first Mexican homebuilder, respectively, to the New York Stock Exchange.

Sam chairs four companies on the New York Stock Exchange, including: Equity LifeStyle Properties Inc., Equity Residential, Equity CommonWealth, and Covanta Holding Corporation. He is an active philanthropist with a passion for entrepreneurship. In 2017, he was named by Forbes as one of the 100 Greatest Living Business Minds.

Mc Lean | VA | USA
Back in 1993, when Founder, Chairman, and CEO Bob Faith set out to build Greystar, he saw a highly fragmented multifamily industry that was more focused on assets than people. He envisioned the need for an industry leader, a blue-chip company that operated with the highest integrity and character in delivering world-class services to residents, property owners and investors in multifamily real estate. He said, “Why not us? Let’s go be that company.” With a winning strategy and a focus on people, Greystar set out to meet that need -- guided by the mission of enriching the lives of those we touch by doing things the right way. Greystar has learned what’s important to people when it comes to a place to call home and the services that enhance the living experience. And that’s why we put our heart and soul into providing beautiful living environments.
