Baron Bond is Chief Executive Officer of Foundation Group, a real estate management, investment, and development company based in Baltimore, where he oversees a portfolio of multifamily properties, retail commercial centers, and land holdings.
Mr. Bond’s real estate development experience began in a construction trailer in Florida where he worked as a project manager for one of the nation’s largest home builders. Before the work boots got very dirty, he reverted to a more white-collar environment and role within an entrepreneurial Florida company that focused on large-scale, mixed-use development projects along the eastern seaboard.
Prior to working in real estate development, Mr. Bond practiced corporate and real estate law in New York City at the premier law firms of White & Case and Skadden, Arps.
Mr. Bond received his undergraduate degree in business in 1994 from Washington University’s Olin School of Business in St. Louis where he was class valedictorian. He attended Duke University and Columbia University Law Schools, earning his J.D. in 1997 from Duke. He also received a Master's degree in real estate development and investment, graduating with honors from New York University in 2000.
Mr. Bond enjoys weight training, techno and classic rock, foreign travel, motorcycling, exotic cars, weaponry, and science fiction. His interests of a more academic nature include moral philosophy and constitutional law. In addition to his role at The Atlas Society, he serves as a Trustee of the Reason Foundation and a Director of the CATO Institute, manifesting his zeal for liberty as the fountainhead of human flourishing. Private by nature, Mr. Bond’s greatest joy comes from his relationships with family and friends, including his wife and three children.
