What do you do?
I had a commercial real estate brokerage company which I sold two years ago. During that time we bought and assembled of commercial real estate throughout the tri-state area which has recently expanded into Florida, Georgia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In 2006 I bought a KIA dealership. For various reasons, in 2009 we started a sub-prime lending company which has grown dramatically. We also own Shleppers Moving and Storage.

What do you bring with you?
Well, other than hot pastrami I have a lot of business experience in both starting, growing, acquiring and selling companies.

Why Homrun?
I am an ardent Zionist and I believe that a strong Israeli economy is good for the state. Besides, I would love to own a piece of the rock in Israel. Some business that I would have an interest in there.
