Mr. Brewer began and spent the majority of his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers where he rose to partner with a client base focused on public and private real estate investment trusts, primarily in lodging.
“Bill brings tremendous REIT experience given his current role at EdR and his involvement servicing many of the hotel REITs throughout his career at PwC dating back to the 1990’s when many of the initial lodging REITs became publicly traded. We are confident that Bill’s financial expertise will contribute greatly to our board and management team,” Fisher emphasized.
