Meet our team

We have a 35+ year history that has evolved from syndicating deals in the first 19 years of our existence, to investing high net worth discretionary capital, to then forming institutional separate account/joint ventures over the past 10 years, and most recently investing on behalf of commingled institutional discretionary funds.

The IEC team is a cohesive group that blends the legacy of its heritage with dynamic energy. Culturally we share the same values. We are entrepreneurial, creative, and nimble-we get things done with grit and perserverance. While at the same time, we have the acumen, established processes, and fiduciary integrity of an institutional owner.
