Yahya E. B. Henry

Backstory:

My absolute passion is trekking the globe and real estate. Real estate offers the ability to change the trajectory of transitioning communities and reshapes the skylines of the cities we love. Through travel, my worldview is expanded with each new culturual experience.

In short, I'm an entrepreneur who seeks to add value through urban development, value-add acquisitions and cultural exchanges.

On select assignments, I consult organizations on supply chain management and import/export strategies. In this capacity, I aid for profit and not-for-profit organizations in navigating market changes to extract the greatest benefit for the their members and/or shareholders.
