Michael W. Sonnenfeldt
Founder and Chairman

Join us on May 8, to hear from Michael W. Sonnenfeldt, Founder and Chairman of TIGER 21 and an accomplished serial entrepreneur and philanthropist, to hear his views on what it takes to succeed today both personally and professionally. From 1991 to 1998, Mr. Sonnenfeldt founded and led Emmes & Company, a real estate investment boutique that was a major buyer of distressed portfolios in the early 1990s and grew to over a billion dollars in assets by the time he sold his interest in 1998. In 1980, Mr. Sonnenfeldt conceived and initiated the world’s then-largest commercial renovation, commencing the transformation of the 2.4 million square foot Harborside Financial Center in Jersey City, NJ. 

Along with personal anecdotes, he will draw on his new book, Think BIGGER, sharing some of the stories of self-made executives and conclude with some important takeaways as to how these thought-leaders and entrepreneurs obtained success while being change agents along the way.
