TWG Development – Indianapolis in Conversation with co-founder Tony Knoble

How did you hear about Cogress / Hagshama?
In the early days, we relied on family offices and equity syndication.

In the Last 5 years we started getting into market housing – which is when we got introduced to Hagshama / Cogress through Meridian Capital at the NHMC San Diego last year.

What was your experience with Cogress /Hagshama been like?
We have closed two JV’s so far, and It has been a great experience.

Being a family business, it is important to us that our equity partners have real understanding of the U.S market we focus on I enjoyed meeting the entire team in Tel Aviv, working with the analysts and the acquisitions team, and what is most amazing to me is how we could bridge cultural differences, and time zones. Their commitment and availability in odd hours, working late nights – basically making the partnership work.

I had a great experience in Tel Aviv, it is important to me to meet our investors and it was a big deal to see the offices and meet the team.

Hagshama is transparent in their interests and goals and good at establishing trust. I know that I can pick up the phone and get in touch with the head of acquisitions or the acquisition team any time of the day. I also know that if the deal meets the criteria it will close, and that we will work through any issuesthat arise. Being able to make deals work while dealing with different time zones, markets, and cultures, means we will send them every deal we get.
