“Over 100 Years of Deals”: Chairman Richard Kessler featured in Wall Street Journal

Richard Kessler, ULI New York Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Benenson Capital Partners was featured in the Wall Street Journal on May 13, 2013. The article, “Over 100 Years of Deals” highlights the history of the Benenson family real estate empire and Kessler’s contributions as COO, handling the firm’s day to day operations, deal structuring, and negotiations.

Lawrence Benenson, Executive Vice President says, “I didn’t have the depth or breadth of experience of Richard, who had been intimately involved in all the financing and all the nitty-gritty of every deal we had done since 1980.”

In April, Kessler finalized a deal involving one of the Benenson family’s most valuable properties: a 75-year lease of 400 Park Avenue, a 21-story office tower.
