Minneapolis’ Ryan Companies adds industry vet to board of directors

Noah Levy

Noah Levy, a retired commercial real estate professional from New Jersey, recently became the newest member of the board of directors of Minneapolis-based Ryan Companies.

Levy retired at the beginning of 2019 from Prudential Financial after 28 years in the company’s CRE/Investment division within its senior living investment program. Levy was first connected with Ryan Companies in 2015 during the Grand Living at Lake Lorraine project, a senior living community in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Using his knowledge in investments and finance, Levy found success in the commercial real estate industry and has established himself within the senior living sector. As the former Managing Director for PGIM Real Estate – the commercial real estate arm of Prudential Financial – he developed and managed the Senior Housing Partners investment funds platform for 20 years.

SHP has invested in more than 150 properties across the country through private equity funds. As a result of his commitment to the senior housing industry, Levy was actively involved in its development and growth through his participation on the board of the American Seniors Housing Association and served a term as its chairman.

Levy is well-versed in all aspects of institutional real estate investment and fiduciary duty, business operations, strategic development and implementation. In addition to his new role for Ryan Companies, he currently serves on the board of two organizations that focus on the growing community of adults with special needs.
