Managing Director, Boston Office
Recent projects he has led have run across a gamut of disciplines and geographic settings. These include launching a successful city-wide local purchasing effort with the Buffalo Purchasing Initiative, creating a neighborhood development strategy in collaboration with the University of Chicago, reimagining a closing college campus in Detroit to open a neighborhood school in partnership with University of Michigan, and implementing a real estate development strategy on behalf of Mills College in Oakland.
George draws on a number of areas of expertise in his work. He has a background in real estate finance and development, coupled with urban planning. His curiosity and involvement in anchor-led economic development began in his role prior U3 Advisors, serving as a Consultant and Research Director for Collegia, Inc., a Boston-based firm focused on leveraging collaborative partnerships between higher education and civic entities to attract and retain college students.
George and his family reside in the Boston-area. Working or not, he spends as much time as possible outside – exploring the cities and neighborhoods where U3 takes him, snowboarding when possible, but more often chasing (or being chased) by his kids and dog.
George holds a Master of City Planning from University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Economics from Trinity College.
