You’ll find these values behind who we are and everything we do. And we’re proud to have assembled a team of advisers, investors and professional service providers who not only share our core values, but also bring complementary experience and expertise in areas that are critical to our success.

M. Ryan GormanM. Ryan Gorman

Co-Founder, Lead Investor and Chair of Advisory Board, btcRE LLC
Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations, NRT LLC

Ryan’s role as Co-Founder, Lead Investor and Advisory Board Chair of btcRE may perhaps be more accurately described as “Chief Backseat Driver.” Ryan plays an invaluable leadership role to help btcRE move forward and stay focused on the firm’s core work. Fortunately, he’s particularly well-suited for this task – in his day job, Ryan manages strategic operations for the nation’s largest residential real estate brokerage, NRT LLC. In this post, Ryan leads the company’s overall strategic growth and competitive analysis functions and has operational responsibility for growing NRT’s commercial, insurance, real estate owned (REO), property management and rental businesses, in addition to overseeing its mortgage, title and home warranty services partnerships. Prior to this role, Ryan was the Corporate Senior Vice President and Head of Strategic Development for Realogy Corporation, NRT’s parent company.

Before joining Realogy, Ryan held advisory and principal investment roles with PricewaterhouseCoopers (Transaction Services, Philadelphia, Pa.), Credit Suisse (CS First Boston’s Technology Investment Banking Group, Palo Alto, Calif.), and The Blackstone Group (Blackstone Debt Advisors, New York City). He graduated with honors from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Advisory Board

btcRE benefits from the strategic advice, insights and feedback of a diverse Advisory Board comprised of leaders in their respective fields. To serve as an Advisory Board member, a true commitment to btcRE and our core values counts for more than a prestigious resumé or fancy title — though our Advisory Board members happen to have it all.

Professional Service Providers

We value our strong relationships with best-in-class professional service providers who help us execute our real estate strategies and ensure smooth and expeditious transactions at each phase of our projects.
