Gelt Venture Partners promoted Josh Satin to partner and he will continue to lead the firm's investment strategy in his new role

Gelt Venture Partners Promotes Josh Satin to Partner

Gelt Venture Partners has promoted Josh Satin to partner. Satin, who transitioned from a successful career in professional baseball as a New York Mets player to the finance industry, has played a pivotal role in more than $1 billion of acquisitions since joining the Gelt team in 2016.

Starting as an asset manager, he steadily climbed the ranks to become the CIO and now a partner. In his new role, Satin will continue to lead the firm’s investment strategy, oversee equity raising for each acquisition and manage Gelt’s debut multifamily and storage fund.

Damian Langere, a partner and a founding member of Los Angeles-based Gelt, said, “Josh’s instrumental role in sourcing, underwriting, and analyzing multifamily investments, has enabled Gelt to acquire 5,200 units valued at nearly $1.1 billion. Additionally, his contributions align with our firm’s mission of maximizing returns for investors.”
