In an unexpected move, the large net lease real estate investment trust and REIT manager W.P. Carey Inc. said Wednesday its CEO and a member of its board, Trevor Bond, was stepping down.
He is being replaced by current Carey board member and former chief financial officer Mark J. DeCesaris, who served as an executive for the company from 2005 to 2013.
The market reacted negatively to the news. At noon on Thursday, shares of W.P. Carey had dropped $4.27 per share, or 7.6%. Shares were trading at $51.62.Go Back
