EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT, Inc. (the “Company”), a fully-integrated and internally-managed net lease REIT, today announced a corporate rebranding as GRT. In connection with the rebranding, the Company unveiled a new logo along with the launch of its new website, www.grtreit.com.

The Company’s new name and visual identity reflect its expansion and distinction as one of the largest office and industrial net lease REITs in the United States. The contemporary new logo accentuates the Company’s sharp focus on the future and is designed with an oversized ‘R’ to emphasize its real estate centric approach to net lease investing. The interaction of the three letters represents GRT’s inclusive culture and the connectedness between the Company and its stakeholders.

“We wanted to create a new brand that embraces our ongoing commitment to serve all stakeholders. Our real estate centric approach and entrepreneurial spirit drive our institutionally-trained team of industry veterans to achieve our vision – redefining net lease investing to generate superior risk-adjusted returns. We believe our new logo and redesigned website better showcase our team’s capabilities, highlight our national portfolio of business-essential office and industrial properties, and illustrate why GRT is America’s Blue-Chip Landlord™,” stated Michael J. Escalante, GRT’s Chief Executive Officer and President.

GRT has grown through targeted single-asset and portfolio acquisitions, build-to-suits, forward commitments, and strategic mergers. An overview of GRT’s portfolio is provided in the accompanying Portfolio Snapshot.
