Kelvin Davis has been a member of our board of directors since its inception. Mr. Davis has been with TPG since 2000 and is the Founder and Co-Head of TPG Real Estate and served on the TPG Holdings Committee until the IPO. From 2000 to 2009, Mr. Davis led TPG’s North American Buyout Group, encompassing investments in all non-technology industry sectors. He currently serves on the board of directors for the public company TPG RE Finance Trust, Inc. and the board of directors of the following private companies: Catellus Development Corporation and Enlivant Senior Housing.
