After earning his bachelor's degree in History and Physics, Michael Treanor, who currently leads Claremont Partners Limited as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), entered the field of commercial banking. He completed a year-long management training program at the Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A., and was among the first of his class to earn promotion to an officer's position. During the course of his tenure with Chase Manhattan, Michael Treanor successfully undertook assignments in private banking, home mortgages, and the Metropolitan Community Bank.
While working at Chase Manhattan, Michael Treanor was studying law at Fordham University's School of Law. In 1991, he left Chase Manhattan to concentrate full-time on his studies. He earned his Juris Doctor in 1992, following which he became an associate attorney at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft. The bulk of Treanor's work consisted of real estate financing transactions, which he performed for such clients as Lehman Brothers, Prudential Securities, and PaineWebber, Inc. He later joined Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., as a vice president in its Real Estate Investment Banking Division, where he was lead manager for numerous large transactions, including a $1.4 billion "megadeal" that was named Deal of the Year by Institutional Investor Magazine. As a Principal and Limited Partner at Fremont Realty Capital LP, which he joined in 1998, Treanor continued his successful involvement in the management of large funds primarily involved in real estate management and construction.
In 2003, Michael Treanor joined Concorde Capital, LLC, as Managing Member. Among his more significant accomplishments during his tenure there were the purchase of six casino/hotels in Las Vegas and their subsequent sale, and the conversion of a major Miami hotel to condominiums, both transactions resulting in significant profits. Treanor joined AMZ Holdings PLC as CEO in 2008 and immediately immersed himself in two jobs: raising the money necessary to build Taiwan's first casino/hotel, and preparing for the sale of AMZ Holdings, both of which he completed successfully.
