Ken Gold


Recognized as an innovative leader in business and real estate development, Gold has led Skilken Gold to national prominence. In addition to his 38 years as a premier developer, he is an adjunct professor for graduate courses in real estate finance and development at The Ohio State University and served as the director of the Center for Real Estate Education and Research.

With more than 35 years in real estate development, it’s hard to single out just one accomplishment. However, most recently, being selected as one of four national developers working as partners with Walmart on a build-to-suit program has been a fantastic experience. I knew the Skilken Gold team was amazing. When I heard the head of Walmart’s build-to-suit program state that she never had to manage the Skilken Gold team—I realized others recognize our difference as well.
