“For our position, one thing that might stand out beyond a direct RE investment background is asset mgmt. experience. That would provide a strong knowledge base to underwrite and model new investments. The main asset class expertise we are looking to fill in hotels, but it is not required. If someone has a strong background in office or multifamily, we could adjust responsibilities to take advantage of that.”
