Jim began his career in real estate in the late 1990s, joining Equity Office Properties Trust to assist with operational standardization across the company’s twenty markets before becoming a property manager in Boston’s financial district. He has spent the past 20 years working for a global real estate organization and the last 10 years dedicated to Life Sciences, overseeing GMP manufacturing, corporate office space, and regulated/non-regulated lab space.
