Looking back, was there a
student job that made an
impression on you in terms of the
lessons it imparted?
It's interesting to answer that question
now because we recently moved
my mom out of her home and came
across about 12,000 photos. Among
them was one of me in my brown UPS
uniform. It was a job that was very
hard to get. They interviewed a lot of
people and didn't hire many, plus you
had to be 21 and have a commercial
driver's license.
One of the things that really struck
me was that everybody I encountered
in that job was just as ambitious and
type-A as the people I've encountered
later in my career-the only real difference was what circumstances they
were born into. It reminded me of just
how fortunate I was, with the access
to education and other opportunities
that I had.
For many people, that's the key
difference, and so it was important for
me to really do everything I could not
to waste any of those opportunities.
My dad is an immigrant and he always
told me that the one thing nobody
could ever take away from you was
your education. It really is true, but
there's nothing like seeing it firsthand.

Q

Obtaining a commercial
driver's license must have
involved some challenges?
Yes, you have to learn about things like
off-tracking and you quickly discover
that if you back the truck into a loading dock too fast you could spend an
hour picking up all the packages that
had been so carefully organized for
delivery by zip code. So you learn how
to get that right.

Q

At what point did real
estate come on your radar?
It wasn't until I went to business
school and it really had everything
to do with the people that I met who
had been in the real estate industry
prior to business school. Before that
time, I had worked mostly in financial
services, starting at Goldman Sachs
followed by a private equity firm,
Thomas Lee Partners, in Boston. I
then co-founded a software firm, so
