Matthew Gottesdiener Featured in GlobeSt. Fifty Under 40 List

Matthew Gottesdiener was attracted to the fast-paced and intellectually challenging nature of investment banking, along with the general prioritization of merit over experience, characteristics that carry over into his role as CEO of Northland. Gottesdiener graduated from Yale University and worked as an investment professional at Goldman Sachs before joining Northland in 2016. In his current role, he leads the national real estate private equity firm with $8 billion in assets under management, including a portfolio of 26,000 apartments, 2.1 million square feet of commercial space, and a $3 billion development pipeline. In the past year under his guidance, Northland completed 35 transactions, including 11 acquisitions, seven dispositions and 17 refinances. One of the most notable was the historic acquisition of THEA at Metropolis, a 59-story, 685-unit residential tower in Downtown Los Angeles. Before Gottesdiener’s leadership, Northland primarily owned wood frame and garden-style multifamily homes. Today, the firm’s portfolio consists of a diversified high-rise, mid-rise and garden-style mix, as well as a stand-alone residence community and an adult active community. A leading voice in the real estate industry, Gottesdiener has built a robust and growing Twitter following of more than 14,000, where he provides thoughtful commentary and garners engagement from fellow industry peers and thought leaders. Gottesdiener takes an active role in developing solutions to deep-rooted issues that face the industry, including serving as a board member and treasurer with HomeStart, a Boston-based nonprofit that aims to eradicate homelessness in the region through a housing-first approach.
