He is the 2017 chair of The Counselors of Real Estate professional association and president of The Muldavin Company, a real estate advisory firm in San Rafael, Calif.
Mr. Muldavin led a panel session which addressed how real estate is adapting to the healthcare industry’s increasing focus on chronic diseases, cost pressures, new technology, and the world’s aging population. ”From Sick Care to Well Care: How Does Rethinking the Healthcare Industry Impact the Real Estate Industry?” featured discussion with Frederic Durosseau, group chief – real estate and development officer, Korian; David Lewis, partner, NBBJ; and Luke Savage, director – European operations and acquisitions, Medical Properties Trust.

“With healthcare spending averaging 10% of Gross Domestic Product in Western Europe, and 17% in the United States, healthcare has become a critical economic engine,” Mr. Muldavin said. “These trends are critical to predicting regional real estate success, and are redefining the type and nature of health care facilities, including the role all buildings and communities can play in promoting health and wellness.”
