Amr Elborai’s diverse background includes extensive C-level leadership responsibilities. At a privately held bank he originated and structured in excess of $500 million in commercial and industrial real estate finance transactions. Under his direction as Head of Strategy for a leading diesel engine parts manufacturer, company revenue doubled resulting in a tenfold increase in EBITDA and significant cash reserves. Mr. Elborai was then able to leverage his real estate expertise to utilize excess cash from operations to build a real estate portfolio that now serves as a hedging mechanism and profit stabilizer for the manufacturing company. As a Portfolio Manager for a leading hedge fund he oversaw a $1.5 billion real estate debt portfolio. He also served as Risk Manager for a large U.S. utility managing a volume in excess of $1 billion in energy derivatives.
