Kratzer to speak at Burnham-Moores' lecture series

John Kratzer, president and CEO of JMI Realty, will speak at the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate’s Breakfast at the BMC lecture series on Oct. 22.

Dennis Cruzan, co-founding partner of Cruzan | Monroe, will serve as moderator. The event runs from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the University of San Diego campus.

Kratzer is responsible for the overall strategic direction of JMI, including all transactional and capital market activities. Over the past decade, his achievements include leading the 26-block master planning and development effort that ultimately created Petco Park, which serves as the centerpiece of what is a $2 billion urban redevelopment effort in downtown San Diego. Prior to joining JMI, he was co-founder of Homegate Hospitality Inc., where he directed the company’s operations, including the development and construction of more than 3,000 hotel rooms. Under Kratzer’s leadership, the company grew from a private start-up to a publicly traded company and ultimately merged with Prime Hospitality.

The Breakfast at the BMC distinguished lecture series was launched by the Burnham-Moores Center in 2007 and has featured renowned speakers, including philanthropist Ernest Rady, CB Richard Ellis CEO Brett White, Singapore’s GIC Real Estate president Seek Ngee Huat, former MLB Commissioner Peter Ueberroth and Janet Yellen, vice-chair of the Federal Reserve.
