George Petrie

Chief Executive Officer

As the CEO of Goodman Real Estate, George brings more than 35 years of industry experience and expertise. George has cultivated a professional culture driving success through the company’s mission, vision, and values. He has led teams to develop, acquire, and dispose of over 350 assets globally. With experience in finance, accounting, property and asset management, and capital markets, George invests his time and talents to the future of real estate investment at GRE.

George drives satisfaction by challenging his team at GRE to reach their goals and fostering growth and leadership within each individual. He is a passionate advocate for increasing the national housing supply by influencing policymakers to remove legislative and regulatory barriers. George believes that a portion of profitable work should go toward those at risk in the community. This led to the creation of IMPACT, a company-wide initiative that collaborates with local non-profits to serve vulnerable groups, focusing on shelter, community, education, sustainability, and relief.

Outside of work, George serves on several non-profit boards, spends quality time with his wife and three daughters near the University of Washington, and enjoys boating, skiing, traveling, and supporting local charities.
