Adjunct Professor Thomas M. Craig '82 received widespread attention this week for leading Dallas-based firm Hines to sustained success in the New York market. Craig's work as senior vice president and partner in Hines's regional office in Manhattan is featured as the lead story in the July 23 Crain's "Real Estate Report." The piece commends the firm's development and management work in New York since the 1980s, from the Lipstick Building in 1986 to the One Bryant Park building currently under way.
"New York has never been more important to us as a firm," Craig says in the interview. "Because New York is a global financial capital, everything we do here is amplified as we seek funding from all over the world."
Craig joined Hines in 1982, the same year he earned his MBA at Columbia Business School. He returned to his alma mater to teach Real Estate Development in spring 2011 and has continued offering the course each spring.
Founded in 1957, Hines is a privately owned, international real estate firm.
