KR Capital Management
Managing Director / Principal
2005 - 2009
While working as the Managing Director of Kravetz Realty Group, I recognized an opportunity to form an investment vehicle for individuals with a lower level of disposable income, but who still wanted to participate in commercial real estate investments and devlopment. KR Capital Management was established as a private fund, focused on accredited investors who were already affiliated or associated with principals, associates, employees, or affiliates of Kravetz Realty Group. I spearheaded all operations of KR Capital Management, which included short term bridge loans, long term investment strategies, development opportunities, and land re-zoning and entitlement revaluations. In all, there were dozens of investors included in KR Capital Management and even as the economy started to decline, KR Capital continued to prosper and move forward in the commercial real estate markets.
Bear Stearns & Co., Inc.
Vice President
1998 - 2003
Coming out of the University of Wisconsin's Grainger School of Business, there was little doubt that I yearned to work on Wall Street for a large investment house. I was extremely lucky to have secured a position at Bear Stearns & Co. in the Global Strategy Group of the firm's Investment Banking division. Leveraging my combined degrees in Finance and Computer Science, I was assigned as a member of a unique three person team focussed on the interpretation of financial requests related to the then evolving digital revolution. As I entered Bear Stearns, technology was not as accepted in the business world as it is today and the top executives of the firm tasked our group with the responsibility of assessing extremely large loan requests by outside firms looking to invest in emerging technologies related to the Internet and e-commerce.
Payment Terms
I'm very flexible - whatever works best for you.
