Founded in 2021 by Jennifer McElyea and Adam Siegman, the former leadership team of Watt Investment Partners, Ethos was conceived to address the critical housing shortage with a new approach. With a collective track record in real estate investment banking, private equity, development and partnership with the public sector, the principals of Ethos successfully established new investment structures that leverage private capital for the production of housing at all income levels.
As a result, Ethos has become a trusted partner to public agencies and communities seeking to address their housing needs, with a mission to create positive change and a new narrative for residents, communities and the housing system.
We are a team of professionals dedicated to problem solving, with a track record of success in areas that require creativity, integrity, and patience. We have a broad, but complementary set of skills including real estate development, public-private-partnerships, project management, land use, entitlements, capital markets and public policy.
