Mr. Code has worn many hats since 1990 and played key roles in the company’s foundational events. He brings more than 30 years of experience in virtually every aspect of real estate finance, acquisition, and development in both the public and private sectors to the job of CEO.
After control of the company was secured from First City Development, Mr. Code raised the first institutional capital for the company’s initial air cargo development in Montreal, Quebec. The acquisitions of Intermediate Terminals and Marathon Aviation Terminals were the basis for the creation of Realterm Logistics and Aeroterm. Mr. Code and John Cammett have been true partners in the building of Realterm, often interchangeably working deals, files and relationships. Since that initial investment, the company’s portfolio has expanded to more than 35 airports around the world. He has provided leadership and undertaken groundbreaking transactions for Realterm as it grew.
Since Realterm’s beginnings, Mr. Code has served as a catalyst for “stretch” events, always driven to see the company into its next iteration. These events include pushing to enter the U.S. marketplace in 1997, establishing joint ventures with institutional capital, the branding of Realterm with its expansion into India in 2006, the creation of IndoSpace and guiding the company toward a discretionary capital model for raising funds. Mr. Code has contributed to the company’s ongoing success by creating cultural and operational systems, while leveraging relationships and partnerships to help Realterm and its stakeholders raise funds and achieve long-term goals.
Mr. Code graduated from Harvard University with a BA in economics. He is a member of the ULI (Urban Land Institute) and PREA (Pension Real Estate Association). Mr. Code lives in Annapolis with his wife and they have four children. Outside the office he has devoted thousands of hours to the Navy Youth Hockey Association as coach and board member. He and his wife support The Avasara Academy in Pune, India through the Board of Leadership Foundation of India.
