Commercial Real Estate

Finance Executive

PROFILE

I’ve spent my career building. Not building structures – building revenues, market share, EBIDA and most importantly….quality relationships. Leading teams of talented individuals, all focused on common goals and then exceeding expectations is how I define success. Years of achieving revenue goals for great companies have prepared me for new challenges. I am ready to contribute my broad knowledge, unique talents, and solid reputation to the West Coast Commercial Real Estate and affordable housing sector.
