Michael Brennan Named "Most Inspirational CEO" in Real Estate Forum's 2016 Leadership Issue

CHICAGO, July 11, 2016 -- Michael Brennan has orchestrated more than $10 billion in industrial real estate transactions, forming some of the most successful firms in the business, including First Industrial, in the course of his 25-year career. His current firm is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year with over $1 billion in real estate investments. He literally wrote the book on the industrial property sector and has received accolades for his leadership achievements from both the CRE community and the broader business world. In addition to his current position at Brennan Investment Group, he is executive director of the University of Wisconsin’s James A Graaskamp Center for Real Estate.

Yet all of these achievements do not define who Brennan is as a leader, if the input we received from his staff and colleagues is any indication. When discussing Brennan – who today is chairman and managing principal of Brennan Investment Group – they use words like “caring,” “kind,” “tireless,” “committed,” “nurturing” and, above all, “inspirational.” His success story, combined with a genuine appreciation for, and openness with, the people who work with him is what makes him an ideal leader and one that CRE professionals want to follow.
