WILLIAM POLK CAREY
Bill Carey (1930 – 2012) was an entrepreneur, a pioneer in global
corporate finance and a philanthropist for more than six decades.
His career was defined by two core principles that he adopted more
than 30 years ago: investing for the long run and doing good while
doing well. The founder and chairman of W. P. Carey Inc. guided the
development of the firm into the
position of market leadership it
has continuously held from its
early years. He started the company in 1973, primarily to structure single-asset private investments. Today, W. P. Carey has
nearly $12 billion in assets under
management. Carey was also the
founder and chairman of the W.
P. Carey Foundation, established
in 1988 to support educational
institutions, with the larger goal of
improving America’s competitiveness in the world.
Cole Real Estate investments has had its share of news lately, or at
least Cole Credit Property Trust III has, as it weighs, doubtfully at
press time, a possible acquisition by American Realty Capital
Properties Inc. Christopher H. Cole is the founder and executive
chairman of the umbrella group, and he has been actively engaged
as a principal in the structuring and management of real estate
investment programs since founding the firm in 1979. Since then
the company has formed and managed over 100 real estate investment programs, owning real estate with a combined acquisition and
development cost in excess of $12 billion. In May 2007, he was presented with the Distinguished Achievement Award from the W. P.
Carey School of Business at Arizona State University for his contributions to the school of business, the university and community.
