During his tenure at J.A. Green Development Corp. (JAG), Dan Green has personally directed the development of more than two million square feet of office and warehouse space “from the ground up”. He began training for his career with JAG at age 15, when he spent his summer working as an apprentice to an electrician. Every subsequent summer Dan worked with a different contractor, learning the basics of each trade. Anticipating a career with his father in the company, Dan enrolled at Babson College, where he was a four-year starter on the men’s tennis team, and majored in Entrepreneurial Studies. In 1992, Dan joined the family business full time.
Dan started his career as a property manager, managing retail strip centers in Queens and Nassau Counties in New York State, as well as leasing office and warehouse space adjacent to John F. Kennedy International Airport. In 1994, Dan moved to Texas and focused on JAG's new airport adjacent developments at Sea-Tac, Houston Bush Intercontinental, Atlanta’s Hartsfield and D/FW International Airport.
Dan was promoted to President of JAG in January 2000 and continues in that role today. In 2006, Dan directed the largest single sale in the company’s history. The sale included properties located in Dallas, Houston, Seattle, and Atlanta. Immediately following the sale, Dan led the development of a 220,000 square foot build-to-suit distribution facility in Irving, Texas for Forward Air, Inc. The project included 30,000 square feet of office space, a data center, a 6,000 square foot maintenance facility, parking for over 100 trailers, and required significant infrastructure improvements including removing the property from the one hundred year flood plain. The project was selected as a finalist for one of the “Best Real Estate Deals of 2009” by the Dallas Business Journal.
In 2018 Dan started development of approximately 250 acres of land immediately adjacent to Denver International Airport (DEN). When completed, the project will contain over 3 million square feet of class A warehouse space. The property is the closest privately owned land to the airport tarmac and is one of the first projects to be developed in a confirmed Opportunity Zone.
Dan is an active member of his local synagogue. In June 2016, he completed a three-year term as president of the Board of Trustees at Temple Sholom in Greenwich, CT. Dan, his wife Shannon, and their three children and will be relocating to the Denver area in the summer of 2019.
