< Back Josh Werman, Chief of Staff
Josh Werman brings broad and diverse experience to Laurel Strategies. Prior to joining Laurel, Josh was an asset manager at Bentall Kennedy, a highly-regarded real estate investment advisor with an established reputation as a global leader in sustainable real estate investing. While there, he managed a portfolio of more than $750M in multifamily assets across the country – directing the execution of major capital projects; crafting detailed operational budgets; and leading cross-functional teams to maximize asset performance.
Prior to his career in real estate finance, Josh was a director at PSB Associates, a strategic communications firm specializing in corporate market research and political polling. Josh oversaw daily operations for the firm’s leading corporate and political research teams. Both roles required the ability to respond rapidly to clients’ needs and a changing situation on the ground, skills that Josh now brings to Laurel.
Josh earned his JD and MBA from American University, and his BA in Economics from Duke University. He lives in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington, DC, with his wife Lauren, daughter Olivia, and son James.
