What do you consider to be your greatest professional accomplishment in the past 12 months?
I consider leading the launch of Thasos’ data portal as one of my greatest achievements this past year. Because of this platform, Thasos’ intelligence on shopping and retail properties is now available to an expansive list of commercial real estate firms in a much friendlier format. I am proud to be a part of the leading alternative data intelligence firm, especially during this time of continued growth and momentum in the PropTech industry.
Who are some leaders that you admire and why?
Stephen Ross, CEO of Related Cos., is someone I really admire right now. Hudson Yards is a revolutionary development turning unused land into a cutting edge Live/Work/Play epicenter. Additionally, Adam Newman, CEO of WeWork has done a tremendous service to startups. Thasos was actually based out of WeWork for our first 7 years and we felt the power of their offering first hand. At Thasos, we’re trying to do the same for commercial real estate by offering “alternative” data in an easy to consume format.
Who or what do you attribute to your success?
It’s a simple formula of hard work and a lot of good luck!
What was your favorite thing to do as a kid?
I prepped for my career in commercial real estate by designing model homes in LEGO format and learning the art of negotiation from rounds of Monopoly.
