Lockhart Steele

CEO

The nine years of hard work that Steele put in to build his real estate blog network paid off big time this year: Vox Media, owner of technology site The Verge, recently scooped up Curbed.com LLC for a mix of stock and cash in a deal that was reportedly worth between $20 million and $30 million. Curbed, like its sister blogs Racked and Eater, has expanded rapidly in recent years, bringing its blend of quick-witted posts on “house porn” and offbeat real estate stories to 17 local markets. Before founding Curbed, Lockhart served as the managing editor of New York-based Gawker Media, where he helped grow the editorial staff from 12 people to more than 150.
