Christian LesStrang, MBA’99

Christian LesStrang is senior director, business operations and marketing, for Hickory Street Capital, the real-estate development and private equity arm of the Ricketts family, owners of the Chicago Cubs. Christian emails, “HSC recently completed a high-profile neighborhood development project adjacent to Wrigley Field. The first tower houses the Cubs’ front office, and the second tower is home to Hotel Zachary, a 173-room neighborhood boutique hotel. The campus offers 10 dining options, providing a robust food-and-beverage experience to visitors. Gallagher Way, an open-air plaza, has become the new town square of Wrigleyville—a gathering place for concerts, movies, farmers markets, and more.”
