Eastern Union Expands Investment Sales into Tri-State Region with New Hire
Eastern Union has named industry veteran Ben N. Weiss to the position of senior managing director of investment sales for New York City and the greater Tri-State region. Weiss’ arrival signals the expansion of Eastern Union’s investment sales business into the New York City region after operating from the company’s Mid-Atlantic office since 2019.
Weiss comes to Eastern Union after an 18-year tenure with The Besen Group, a New York City-based investment sales firm. He most recently held the position of managing director for investment sales with that company. Prior to that, he served as director of business development with a major pharmaceutical vendor.
“Ben Weiss brings a proven record of accomplishment in the investment sales sector in the New York City market,” said Abraham Bergman, president and CEO of Eastern Union. Weiss has closed sales transactions representing all asset classes throughout the New York City and Tri-State region.
