Jeff Reid runs the Entrepreneurship and real estate initiatives at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business to build world-class programs in each of these important industries. In doing so, Reid seeks to leverage the real-world experience of local business leaders to enhance student learning. His two-fold vision is to make Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business known as a place that supports and celebrates entrepreneurship, and to make the school’s MBA programs highly attractive for students pursuing careers in the real estate industry.
Reid has previously held leadership roles at the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, DigitalBridge Communications, DLA Piper, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Trammel Crow.
At UNC-Chapel Hill, Reid grew an educational organization entrepreneurially from its inception to a No. 1 national ranking and was chosen by his peers as one of the top five entrepreneurship center directors in the United States. He served as chairman of the North American Entrepreneurial Studies Leadership Group and was recognized with the USASBE National Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship Education.
Reid earned a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Appalachian State University and an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
