Hines’ Kuntz Speaks to Tech Innovators

Hines Innovation Officer Charlie Kuntz joined a panel of CRE industry experts recently at the CREtech New York Venture Conference, the largest assembly of commercial real estate technology investors ever gathered for a single event.

Charlie was one of 35 experts from leading investor, landlord and brokerage firms invited to speak at the event, offering his perspective on “Tech Savvy Landlords.” Charlie was joined on the panel by executives from Prologis Ventures, Brookfield, RXR Realty and EQ Office.

“Tech companies should be ready to offer a value proposition that demonstrates meaningful return on an overall investment,” says Charlie. “Landlords are looking for technology that saves money and generates revenue.”

Charlie was approached months ago about participating on the panel of developers and owners and quickly agreed. “Any time we have the opportunity to get in front of this kind of audience, it reinforces Hines’ position as a leader and innovator in the industry,” he added.

The CREtech New York Venture Conference drew nearly 1,000 attendees, including innovators and thought leaders from real estate and venture capital firms as well as technology startups. The conference also previewed important investment and product trends in the CRE-tech sector.
