Hugh Kelly joined me today for the podcast. I’ve known Hugh for quite a while and greatly admire his insights.
Hugh is an Associate Clinical Professor of Real Estate in New York University’s Masters Degree Program  in Real Estate Investment and Development. He heads his own consulting practice, Hugh F. Kelly Real Estate Economics, which serves national and international real estate investment and services firms, governmental organizations, law firms, and not-for-profit agencies. Prior to establishing this consultancy, he was chief economist for Landauer Associates, where he worked for 22 years until early 2001.
Hugh also serves as the President of the Board of Brooklyn Catholic Charities ’ affordable housing development corporation, which has built and manages 3,000 units of low-income family, seniors, and special needs housing. He is a member of the Counselors of Real Estate, the National Association of Business Economists, and the American Philosophical Association. He has spoken to virtually every major real estate organization in the United States, as well as to audiences in Canada, the U.K., France, the Netherland, and Germany.
We served together on the New York City Council Finance Committee Economic Advisory Board and our firms have worked together on several consulting projects.
Hugh provides perspective on affordable housing, his recent Ground Zero consulting, MBA programs and their relationship to the credit crunch among others. He’ll join me again in the near future to expand the discussion on affordable housing.
