Rick Caruso

As the Founder and CEO of Caruso Affiliated, one of the largest, privately held real estate companies in the country, Rick is redefining retail by creating highly sought-after destinations. “I love the daily challenge of providing a great experience, staying ahead of the curve, and being a part of our industry’s constant evolution.”

With this approach, Caruso Affiliated has become one of the most admired real estate development firms in the world. His award-winning properties including The Grove, The Americana at Brand and The Promenade at Westlake combine exceptional shopping and dining with an unprecedented guest experience.

Vanity Fair called The Grove the “Main Street of Dreams” and The Wall Street Journal recognized its five-star Concierge team as the best in the nation.  Both The Grove and Americana at Brand rank among the top 15 shopping centers in the world.
