Sway Ventures
Partner

Lisa Picard has more than 30 years of experience developing, leading, and managing complex real estate investments. She is a driving force in progressive thinking and strategies for value in capital-intensive industries. She is keenly focused on technology driving human potential, particularly in this age of rapid change. 

 Picard joined EQ/Blackstone in late 2016 as COO and quickly became CEO in 2017. She immediately worked to re-shape the organization and office market to have greater relevance to the shifting workforce needs.

Prior to joining EQ, Picard worked as a real estate executive for Skanska, developing office and residential properties while also guiding investments for the company in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. At Canyon Ranch Spa and Resorts, Picard drove the expansion of the experiential hotel brand in developing a multi-towered residential hotel spa destination in Miami, Florida. Her career has touched more than 7 million square feet of ground-up development valued in excess of $6 billion.

 Picard holds two master's degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She has lectured at MIT and the University of Washington on visioning, technology, design thinking, mindful leadership, real estate innovation, and understanding risk in changing markets. She also serves on the board of directors of MiiR, a product-to-project B corporation, and Honest Buildings, a prop-tech capital management platform for real estate owners.
