Before co-founding Bowery, Noah worked for Butler Burgher Group, valuing over $2.5 Billion worth of commercial real estate in New York. In 2010 he started his career in Baseball Operations, running numbers for the Toronto Blue Jays. The following year he became the youngest plenary speaker in the 29 year history of the International Conference of the System Dynamics Society. Noah graduated from McGill University with a major in Statistics and a double minor in Operations Management and Labor-Management Relations.
After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, John joined Leitner Group, the largest independent appraisal firm in New York City. In his 4+ years at Leitner Group, now BBG, he valued over $3 billion of commercial property across all asset types. Frustrated with the antiquated process of appraising, but excited by the possibilities that property valuation can offer, John left to start Bowery with Noah and Cesar in June of 2015.
