Carmel Capital Partners
Carmel Capital Partners is an investment-centric firm for investors who are looking for an alternative approach to investing. The San Diego-based firm was founded in 2002 by Russell Silberstein with the goal of delivering stable long-term returns for clients through opportunistic, value-oriented investments.
To achieve this, they have rejected the Wall Street status quo of selling cookie-cutter mutual funds and ETFs just to “set it and forget it.” Instead, they invest directly in equities and fixed income, and they go beyond traditional investments to incorporate real estate and private equity.
Today the firm manages $250 million in assets.
Great Ecology, a pioneering environmental consulting firm founded in 2001, integrates science and design and focuses on habitat mitigation and restoration projects. Great Ecology has strategized, designed, built and worked on over 700 completed projects over the past 18 years including at least 35 mitigation banks in 8 states.
The Great Ecology team is comprised of scientists, ecologists, landscape architects, and designers who collaborate to transform landscapes. Their expertise is available to EES and our client by providing biology, GIS, habitat restoration designers, engineering, hydrology, permitting, botany, wildlife ecology, ecological modeling, and a variety of other technical skills to make any ecological development project successful.
Great Ecology has offices in New York, Denver, San Diego, Idaho and Madrid, Spain.
