Hugh Zaretsky –
CEO of Z Office Suites, Hugh Zaretsky is a real estate investor, entrepreneur, author, and speaker. He describes himself as someone who “took the long road” to real estate investing & business ownership after enjoying much success in his corporate career. Hugh began his professional career consulting for Fortune 500 financial services companies. Next, he joined a global leader in the photo industry, rising to the top as one of the youngest directors in the company. While there he became an expert on commercial real estate transactions.
In 2005, he left the corporate world for good to launch his own real estate investment and consultant business. Since then, his companies have invested in projects all across the United States and overseas. In 2008, he helped launch an asset-based (hard money) lending company that lends in the NY tri-state area. Currently his companies are involved in all types of real estate transactions, raising capital, and business developments.
Hugh is a graduate of Binghamton University Watson School of Engineering, where he received a degree in Computer Science. Coming from three generations of teachers, teaching and speaking are in Hugh’s blood. He is a certified continuing education instructor in New York, Texas and Florida, and has trained thousands of real estate investors and entrepreneurs all across the United States. He is an avid sports fan and soccer player. As a true entrepreneur at heart, Hugh found a way to get people to pay him to run. He believes, “Shoot for the Stars and if you only get half way there, you will land on the moon.”
Z Office Suites has been one of Hugh’s goals for two years. He has always chosen businesses that could help the budding entrepreneur and what better way to help them than to give them a place to work, mentors to talk to, investors to pitch and education to keep them in the know about business?!
