Greysteel Fall Executive Lunch Series

Last Tuesday, Greysteel worked with finance platform and correspondent partner Pillar to host the first Fall Executive Lunch Series event at Bourbon Steak in the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington D.C. The event brought together 35 of the area’s top property investors, decision makers, and commercial real estate leaders to discuss current projects and market trends amongst peers.

Guests poured into the room, eager to catch up with former colleagues and partners. Pillar Managing Directors Marc Cesare and Andy Weil gave an overview of the company’s national agency lending platform and its financing capabilities. They also explained SunTrust Bank’s recently announced acquisition of Pillar’s assets and the opportunities the transaction offers clients.

Greysteel Co-Founder Ari Firoozabadi and Urban Investment Partners’ Principal Steve Schwat discussed Steve’s experience in the industry and how he’s grown his business into a multidimensional real estate development firm. Steve explained how he made his way into the commercial real estate industry (after starting his own promotional item company) and what he has learned about developing properties along the way. Steve expressed his passion for the development side of the business and explained why his company has taken on virtually every step of the construction process.

Greysteel looks forward to hosting the Executive Lunch Series semi-annually in D.C. as well as our other offices around the country!
