Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Andrew is an expert at building teams and connecting people with opportunities. Formerly a Talent Agent at William Morris for 16 years, he represented some of the world’s biggest celebrities, including Tim Allen, Sheryl Crow, Barry Manilow, and Peter Frampton, to name a few.
In 2009, Andrew began investing in the alternative asset class and acquired over 100 income producing assets in less than 48 months. During this timeframe, he discovered a massive gap in the market (and the opportunity) and chose to leave the agency to pursue the lucrative opportunities in the private investment sector.
Due his Andrew’s success, he was approached by business associates and friends who were interested in partnering with his companies. Upon counsel, he decided to form a private investment group to allow qualified investors to co-invest with his group. Once Andrew discovered and found success in the private investment sector, he chose to never invest in Wall Street again.
Andrew will focus the growth of the company through strategic partnerships, scaling the companies, and investor relations.
