Solow Family Business is Reorganized Under Founder’s Son

Solow Building Company on Monday announced a reorganization with the formation of the Soloviev Group, the holding company for several business interests operated by Stefan Soloviev, who worked for Solow Building Company and is the son of its late founder, Sheldon Solow.

With Soloviev as chairman, the Soloviev Group encompasses divisions that include, but are not limited to, realty and development, in addition to hospitality, transportation & railroad, and agriculture & ranching divisions.
Stefan Soloviev’s son, Hayden Soloviev, will serve as vice chairman of the Soloviev Group. The new company’s leadership also includes Michael Hershman, president of the Fairfax Group and now CEO of the Soloviev Group; and William Potts, the new COO.

Stefan Soloviev said, “As we continue to diversify our business interests into other arenas, including agriculture, ranching and logistics, the firm is uniquely positioned to experience unprecedented growth and I look forward to leading this transformation.”
