40 Under 40: Adam Zweibel
Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in, about your current position and why you choose the field/profession you are in today? While in college, my girlfriend at the time – who is now my wife – and I successfully built, restructured and sold not one but two computer businesses. While president of one of these companies, I pitched Gebroe-Hammer Associates and met with President Ken Uranowitz, who immediately recognized my tenacity, sales aptitude and overall zeal for building new business. He told me to give him a call if I ever had an interest in commercial real estate and I did just that after selling my second business. Not one to sit idle, I felt like I needed to re-establish myself – and quickly because my wife was pregnant with our third child. For me, commercial real estate was a “logical” choice and the rest is history that is still being written.
