Our Leadership

Hines Glob­al Income Trust is guid­ed by a board of direc­tors com­posed of senior Hines exec­u­tives as well as inde­pen­dent direc­tors, with day-to-day oper­a­tions man­aged by HGIT Advi­sors LP. The man­age­ment team seeks to lever­age its depth of expe­ri­ence and exper­tise to lead with an oper­a­tor mind­set and cap­i­tal­ize on strate­gic oppor­tu­ni­ties and mar­ket conditions. 

Prop­er­ties in the port­fo­lio are expect­ed to be man­aged by Hines or a Hines affil­i­ate, while Hines Pri­vate Wealth Solu­tions LLC man­ages activ­i­ties relat­ed to the offer­ing of shares. For full bios, see the prospec­tus.
