Mr. Beer began his real estate career in 1993, when he joined Starwood Capital Partners (now Starwood Capital Group), following his award of a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard Business School.  Mr. Beer served many functions while at Starwood, focusing primarily in the areas of operations and acquisitions.  These included "Director of Asset Management" for Starwood's multi-housing portfolio and, later, "Senior Vice President for Acquisitions" where he was responsible for a variety of real estate equity and mezzanine finance opportunities in the multi-family, office, retail, and aviation sectors.
