SL Green Names Matthew DiLiberto as Chief Financial Officer, Effective January 1, 2015


SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG), New York City’s largest owner of

commercial properties, today announced that Matthew J. DiLiberto has

been named the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective Jan.

1, 2015, when the employment agreement of the current CFO, James Mead,

expires. Mr. Mead will be leaving to pursue other professional interests.

Mr. DiLiberto, age 40, has been with SL Green since 2004. Prior to this

promotion, he has been the Company’s Chief Accounting Officer and

Treasurer, overseeing its finance, accounting and corporate capital

markets functions. Before joining the Company, he served for four years

as a Controller and Director of Information Management for Chelsea

Property Group, which is now a division of Simon Property Group. He

previously held positions at Vornado Realty Trust and at Coopers and

Lybrand, LLP, the predecessor to PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP.

Marc Holliday, Chief Executive Officer of SL Green, commented, “We’re

very excited about promoting Matt to the CFO position. He has proven to

be a great financial executive over the past 10 years, integral to the

major capital markets activities of the Company, as we grew dramatically

and broadened our operating platform after weathering a major economic

recession. Matt will continue to manage our balance sheet in a prudent

manner while allowing for further growth of the Company.”

Mr. Mead departs after overseeing SL Green’s financial operations since

late 2010. During his four-year tenure, SL Green actively participated

in the capital markets and bolstered its overall financial strength, as

illustrated by the fact that its debt has now received investment-grade

ratings from leading ratings agencies. Also under Mr. Mead’s financial

leadership, the Company has delivered 86 percent in total return to

shareholders, outperforming all major U.S. office REITs while taking

full advantage of market opportunities.

Mr. Holliday said, “We are extremely grateful to Jim Mead for a job well

done over the past four years. Speaking personally, I will miss his

counsel and friendship. But when he indicated that he would like to

relocate back to Chicago full-time for family reasons, I certainly

understood and was supportive. All of us at SL Green wish him well in

his next endeavors.”
