Began his career at UBS Financial Services managing clients’ portfolios and debt placement
Managing partner and CEO of Topaz Capital, Marc Hershberg began his career working at UBS Financial Services managing clients’ portfolios and debt placement in excess of $1 billion with affiliated banks, insurance pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, not-for-profit portfolios and private equity partners.
Prior to founding Topaz Capital, Hershberg worked as head of originations and asset management at Brick Capital, a premier private equity and debt firm with $250 million in assets under management. At Brick Capital, Mr. Hershberg worked along with the firm’s principals in sourcing alternative loan financing and debt acquisition opportunities throughout major U.S. markets with a primary focus on the New York metropolitan area.
Hershberg holds a bachelor’s degree from Yeshiva University and a masters from New York University Schack Institute of Real Estate. He is a contributor to leading CRE news outlets and spends much of his time involved in various Jewish and humanitarian-related charities.
These are just a few reasons we chose Hershberg as one of the New York 2021 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s fifth annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
