David Ridley

David A. Ridley is an accomplished entrepreneur, investor, and CEO who’s a frequent speaker and consultant around building enduring organizations including the establishment of exceptional corporate culture and practices enabling a “winning without regrets” mentality.

David founded Invesco Real Estate (IRE) in 1983.  As CEO of IRE for 27 years between 1983 and 2010, he was responsible for developing the firm’s investment processes, operating policies, staffing, operating philosophy and cultural values. Under David’s direction, the firm grew into a multi-national company with more than 400 employees and more than $65 billion in assets under management, one of the largest and most diversified real estate investment firms in the world.

Respected for its consistency, stability, exceptional client service, and strong performance, IRE developed a reputation as one of the world’s premiere real estate funds management firms, managing assets for prestigious institutional clients including pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and global corporations. Perhaps more importantly, David was able to cultivate a strong corporate culture at IRE that made it an employer of choice – attracting and retaining the best talent in the industry and generating loyalty in employees and clients alike.

In recognition of IRE’s success, Invesco, Ltd. named David as one of its Senior Managing Directors in 2013, responsible for co-chairing the firm’s global institutional management committees and leading its institutional client engagement efforts for the firm’s $800 billion in assets under management and its 6,000 employees worldwide.

David is a graduate of the University of Texas and resides with his wife, Kandy, in Dallas, TX.  An active participant in his community, David is very involved in his church, in mentoring many young business professionals, and is on the Board of Directors for Grad Resources, an organization dedicated to serving the emotional and spiritual needs of graduate students. He’s also passionate about helping individuals and organizations increase their productivity by finding their purpose
