The Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate is pleased to invite you to its first Distinguished Speaker Lunch this Fall featuring Leslie D. Hale, President and CEO of RLJ Lodging Trust. The exclusive in-person engagement will be moderated by Professor Chris Mayer, Co-Director, Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate. RLJ Lodging Trust is a self-advised, publicly traded real estate investment trust focused on owning premium-branded, focused-service and compact full-service hotels.

She is on RLJ’s Board of Directors, serves on Macy’s Board of Directors, is a Howard University Trustee and is a Board member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond’s Baltimore Branch. In addition to discussing RLJ’s strategy and portfolio, the program will touch on the impacts of Covid-19 on the hotel business and the future of working.
