Next Generation Honoree: King Street’s Teri Ford Sees Opportunities Differently
In 2018, Teri Ford joined King Street Properties, Boston’s largest private owner/developer of life science properties, bringing with her seven years’ construction management and development experience in the local Boston market. At King Street, Ford is involved in a wide range of development activities, including acquisitions, financing, permitting, design, construction and leasing.
Prior to King Street, Ford was a project manager for Gilbane Building Company, specializing in corporate interiors within the local Boston and Cambridge markets. An industry colleague worked with her on Reebok’s headquarters relocation to the Innovation & Design Building, on which Gilbane partnered with JLL. “Her dedication to the project was like I have never seen before,” says the colleague. “Although young, she very quickly gained the trust of the entire Reebok and JLL teams and was able to run the job as a project manager, one of the youngest project managers at Gilbane.”
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Ford to be one of the Boston 2019 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Ford prides herself on being educated in all things related to the Boston area real estate market. “After a five-minute conversation with Teri, you can just tell that she approaches problems and opportunities differently than others,” a colleague says.
Paul Bubny serves as Senior Content Director for Connect Commercial Real Estate, a role to which he brings 13-plus years’ experience covering the commercial real estate industry and 30-plus years in business-to-business journalism. In this capacity, he oversees daily operations while also reporting on both local/regional markets and national trends, covering individual transactions across all property types, as well as delving into broader subject matter. He produces 15-20 daily news stories per day and works with the Connect team and clients to develop longer-form content, ranging from Q&As to thought-leadership pieces.
Prior to joining Connect, Paul was Managing Editor for both Real Estate Forum and GlobeSt.com at American Lawyer Media, where he oversaw operations at both publications while also producing daily news and feature-length articles. His tenure in B2B publishing stretches back into the print era, and he has served as Editor in Chief on four national trade publications.
