Episode 2: David Barrett from Gene B. Glick Company

David Barrett is chairman, president, and chief executive officer of the Gene B. Glick Company

Eugene B. Glick started his real estate ownership and management firm in 1947 with a commitment to integrity, quality construction, excellent service, and superbly maintained communities. In addition to Gene B. Glick Company’s commitment to providing quality housing for people of all income levels, in 1982, he and his wife, Marilyn, established the Glick Family Foundation, now known as Glick Philanthropies.

Today, David Barrett – grandson-in-law of Eugene and Marilyn – runs not only the privately-held real estate ownership and management firm, but the organization that holds more than $600 million in charitable assets in the various entities under the Glick Philanthropies umbrella, each with a specific focus: Glick Family Foundation; Gene B. Glick Family Housing Foundation; Glick Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis; and Glick Fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.

Gene B. Glick Company is one of the largest privately held real estate management and development firms in the United States, with more than 20,000 units in 13 states. Glick Philanthropies has donated over $150 million to various organizations and initiatives.

Listen in to learn how David Barrett creates opportunity and builds community by living the “our business is family” mantra on a daily basis with programs such as Glick Gives, which matches qualified charitable contributions from Glick employees to not-for-profit organizations.
