Elite Pacific Staff
President & CEO
Elite Pacific Properties
As President of Elite Pacific Properties I'm responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations across all lines of business (brokerage, vacation rental, & property management services), and drive the overall success, investment priorities, revenue growth, profitability, and value-creation of the company.
In 1983, I joined Intel Corporation in the Netherlands as a sales engineer. As I moved through the ranks and served in many leadership positions, I accepted international assignments that brought me to Germany, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and the USA. Before retiring from Intel in 2014, I served as vice president and general manager of Intel’s $2 billion Internet of Things (IoT) Group, which served market segments such as automotive, industrial and home automation, and intelligent hospitality solutions. After I left Intel Corporation, I spent four years as an investment banker focused on mergers & acquisitions and recapitalizations of technology companies. Starting in 2012, I began exploring property management and have now aligned that focus with my new involvement with Elite Pacific Properties.
