Former Senior Vice President at Savills Studley, Inc.
Career History
Senior Vice President

The company was founded in 1954 by Julien J. Studley, and from its foundation represented only tenants. n 1963 the company began producing and publishing a survey of New York City's available office space, which took the place of the informal exchange of anecdotes that had hitherto served commercial real estate agents to understand the local market. Called The Studley Report, the monthly publication allowed, for the first time in New York, to understand the state of the market clearly, which allowed them to make better decisions about how much the commercial real estate they were seeking was actually worth. The company changed its name to Studley, Inc. in 2003.
