Passionate and hardworking, Mr. Curtis has worn many hats over the course of his career. He started out as a lawyer at White & Case LLP in New York and Hansell & Post (now Jones Day) law firms in Atlanta, and then decided to transition into commercial real estate development.

Although he enjoyed development, he felt it was time to try something new and challenging, so he entered the world of retained executive search in 2002.

Additionally, Mr. Curtis has channeled his expertise into teaching graduate and undergraduate courses at Georgia State University as an adjunct professor in the real estate department for the past 10 years. He greatly values the contributions he’s made to younger generations.

In addition, he has been a director of Buckhead Rotary Club, Sigma Chi Alumni Club of Atlanta and the Honorary Real Estate Board of Georgia State University as well as an elder at Peachtree Presbyterian Church.
Mr. Curtis prepared for his endeavors by earning a Bachelor of Arts in honors history, magna cum laude, from Dartmouth College, a JD from Harvard Law School, and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard University. Notably, he is one of only 400 students to ever earn both law and business graduate degrees at Harvard and was the last ROTC cadet at the institution in 43 years.
