The addition of Mr. Kastanos to Goldrich Kest comes at a strategic time as the company aims to expand its operations and reinforce its standing in the real estate market. Mr. Kastanos’ expertise will be instrumental in guiding Goldrich Kest towards its strategic financial goals.

Mr. Kastanos expressed enthusiasm about the position: “I am thrilled to embark on this new chapter with such a well-respected company and equally excited about relocating to Los Angeles with my family. I look forward to contributing to the company’s ongoing success.”

Goldrich Kest is a privately owned business that can trace its origins back more than 65 years to two entrepreneurs, Jona Goldrich and Sol Kest, holocaust survivors who parlayed their meager savings into a significant portfolio. Today, the second generation of the Goldrich and Kest families continue to build upon its ever-expanding portfolio of residential, commercial, industrial, and retail projects. Among them are 114 apartment buildings, five marinas, 22 senior living facilities, and, scattered throughout the US, more than 7 million square feet of commercial, industrial, and retail space. Over half of its apartment buildings accommodate low-income families.
