What has been your biggest challenge or obstacle in your particular role? How have you overcome those obstacles? As chief financial officer of PTM Partners, starting up the company was certainly one of my biggest challenges. There are many obstacles that come with starting and building a business like PTM, that go beyond the projects and investments that we take on. It was with the help of my partners, Michael Tillman and Nicholas Pantuliano, that I was able to overcome these challenges and get PTM Partners off the ground. Because of these challenges, I would have to say that throughout my time as CFO of PTM, I am most proud of building this business with the team and where we are today.

What is the best piece of advice you have received that has helped you succeed in your industry? The best pieces of advice that I have carried with me throughout my journey with PTM is that it is very easy to get lost in, and frustrated with, the complexity of the real estate development industry. But fundamentally, what matters most in the industry is what your projects are giving to the neighborhood and its community members – and this understanding is what has helped PTM succeed in our industry. That being said, my advice to the next generation, is to build and execute upon what is needed in a certain community, rather than what is wanted.
