Boston Properties' senior management team is among the most respected and accomplished in the REIT industry. Our deep and talented team of thirty-three individuals average twenty-six years of real estate experience and sixteen years with Boston Properties. We believe that our size, management depth, financial strength, reputation, and relationships of key personnel provide a competitive advantage to realize growth through property development and acquisitions.
Boston Properties benefits from the reputation and relationships of key personnel, including Mortimer B. Zuckerman, Executive Chairman, Owen D. Thomas, our Chief Executive Officer, Douglas T. Linde, our President, and Michael E. LaBelle, our Chief Financial Officer. Each has a national reputation, which attracts business and investment opportunities. In addition, our two Executive Vice Presidents and other senior officers that serve as Regional Managers have strong reputations that aid us in identifying and closing on new opportunities, having opportunities brought to us, and negotiating with tenants and build-to-suit prospects.
