Meet Luminary Member, Vlada Epstein


Luminary Member Vlada Epstein 

Tell us a bit about yourself! How did you get started with your current career path/business journey?

I currently work as a VP for Gamma Real Estate on the investing/portfolio management side for their multifamily real estate arm. I oversee all investor relations, analyze new acquisitions and dispositions, and some business development. Before Gamma I was on the Corporate Finance team at KBC Bank doing pure debt lending and portfolio management across multiple asset classes. Prior to KBC I was at Citi for 7 years in their analyst rotational program doing sales and trading and energy and power investment banking strategy. I left Citi because I was recruited by Blackstone to build out their Renewable Energy arm for North America called Onyx Renewable Partners. I planned to take some time off but did some part-time consulting for a friends Municipal hedge fund.
