Eastern Founders Hauspurg and Paris Join ABS

Eastern Consolidated founders Peter Hauspurg and Daun Paris have joined ABS Partners Real Estate. Peter Takiff, who was Eastern’s longtime CFO, will also join the ABS acquisition team.

The three former Eastern executives will focus on building the acquisition pipeline and expanding new partnership relationships for ABS, whose investment portfolio totals 13.25 million square feet in 10 states. They’ll work with co-managing partners Peter Burack and Steven Hornstock, and partners Jason Fein and Randy Modell.

“This new chapter in the esteemed careers of Peter, Daun and Peter holds tremendous promise for the growth and success of the ABS Partners investment platform and our ability to source equity investments that meet the appetites and investment goals of our many long-time partners,” said ABS president Gregg Schenker. “We also hope to be a resource for their relationships, creating opportunity for new equity partners who value our vertically- integrated platform for value creation.”
