Lee J. Brodsky, CEO of BEB Capital

The Island Now

I am the chief executive officer of BEB Capital, a privately held, multifaceted real estate company.

Since joining the company in 2013, I have led BEB’s growth as an institutional-grade owner and operator of industrial assets along the East Coast; grown the company’s multifamily and office portfolio; and launched BEB Lending, a service line that offers loans of up to $50 million and specializes in core real estate assets, including multifamily, industrial, mixed-use, office, retail, development sites, note-on-note financing and other commercial property types.

In addition to spearheading each of these historic milestones for the firm, I have recruited institutional and corporate real estate specialists and expanded the company’s research and support staff. As CEO, I oversee the overall direction of BEB Capital and guide strategic planning for the business including the execution and management of key partnerships.
How do you see your business evolving due to the changing times?

BEB Capital has undergone fundamental changes over the last five years to position us for strategic growth.

As a leader, you need to be prepared and able to adapt to changes. I have learned the values of diversifying risk and preparing for changes in the market, especially since the onset of the pandemic.

We positioned BEB at the forefront of the growth of the Long Island industrial market, a sector that has benefited from growth in e-commerce, which was accelerated due to changing consumer shopping habits as a result of the pandemic.

We are currently focused on diversifying the BEB Capital portfolio to include multifamily and office assets in addition to a growing industrial portfolio.
What advice would you give other business owners?

I believe that businesses need to recognize the value that their employees bring to the company.

The biggest asset to a company is human capital and ensuring that everyone is united in achieving a singular mission. Being empathetic, treating people well, and understanding their viewpoints is critical to fostering an environment where employees do their best work.

Without company buy-in and employees working their hardest, BEB Capital would not be where it is today.
