Crown Castle CEO says REIT Model Provides “Right Long-Term Structure”

Ben Moreland, president and CEO of Crown Castle International Corp. (NYSE: CCI), joined for a CEO Spotlight video interview during REITWeek 2014: NAREIT’s Investor Forum, held in New York.

Crown Castle went public in 1998, but didn’t begin operating as a stock exchange-listed REIT until the beginning of 2014. Moreland was asked to comment on the decision to elect REIT status.

“We thought the REIT corporate organization was the right long-term structure for us,” Moreland said, noting that Crown Castle has thought of itself as a real estate company since inception.
