Join ULI San Francisco for its second installment of our signature Icons series. This exclusive members-only event provides the opportunity to hear firsthand from a Bay Area veteran real estate icon that has made a major impact on the markets and communities where they’ve worked, built businesses and contributed to the community. Mike Covarrubias, Chairman and CEO of TMG Partners, will interview George Marcus and ask for his insight and perspective into the market, leadership, career paths, success, lessons learned and what ULI means to him.
