Domio, the New York-based technology-powered apartment-hotel startup, has appointed David Hirsh to its advisory board, joining the ranks of Eli Elefant (ceo of Property & Building Corp) and Richard Lieb (chairman of real estate investment banking at Greenhill). In addition to being an advisor, Hirsh is also a personal investor in Domio and will provide strategic counsel to help the company focus on property-level asset management, drive operational efficiencies and margin improvement.
Hirsh brings more than 30 years of real estate investment experience to the Domio team, and joins from Blackstone, where he spent 16 years working for its Real Estate Asset Management Group, and completed in excess of $30 billion in transactions. In addition, he also completed over $700 million in major hotel asset repositioning across a $2.5 billion hotel and resort portfolio at the company as well as repositioned office buildings. During this time he developed a broad set of skills from portfolio management, to lending and restructuring. Prior to working at Blackstone he worked at Citigroup for 15 years, including six years in real estate management and investment banking.
