  • Daniel Glimcher

  • Managing Principal

  • Glimcher Capital Group

Daniel Glimcher, since founding Glimcher Capital Group, has developed, provided advisory services for or invested in over $500 million worth of real estate transactions. One of the more notable transactions was the acquisition and development of the parcel located in front of Bally’s Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, on the “fifty yard line” of the Las Vegas Strip. Glimcher Capital Group developed that site together with its partners, including a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment. One of the defining principals of Glimcher Capital Group’s real estate transactions has been “do what’s right for the real estate”. As such, Glimcher has avoided accepting investment in the form of limited life funds, as Glimcher believes this structure leads to improper incentives for management (by driving investment based on fee retention) and poor choices for the health of the real estate transaction (e.g., forced sales when inappropriate). On account of this philosophy, Glimcher Capital Group has been retained by several families and non-profit organizations to advise on the development and/or disposition of long held family real assets.

Prior to founding Glimcher Capital Group, Daniel Glimcher spent five years at the law firm of Jones Day, a law firm of over 2,500 attorneys with over 32 locations worldwide. At Jones Day, Glimcher’s practice involved complex real estate investments, joint ventures, acquisitions and dispositions, financings and restructurings, construction and development, and leasing transactions throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Glimcher has represented hospitality, office, retail, and residential developers; private equity real estate funds; investment and commercial banks; institutional investors; private real estate companies; and corporations with their real estate matters.

Prior to joining Jones Day, Glimcher owned Glimcher Technology Services (“GTS”), where he operated a financial trading technology consultation firm. While owning GTS, he negotiated vendor agreements with major investment banks, conducted massive system invention and integration endeavors for institutional entities, placed developers and technical support agents, and recommended business solutions for trading needs. As a precursor to forming GTS, Glimcher served as the Vice President of Institutional Services at Blackwood, Inc. (“Blackwood”) where he played a major role in expanding Blackwood’s share volume from 4,000,000 shares per day to 40,000,000 shares per day. While at Blackwood, Glimcher also built and maintained relationships with large institutions, supervised new software development projects and managed the Institutional Services Team.

Glimcher comes from a strong family background in real estate. As such, throughout the last 15 years, he has also invested or otherwise participated in real estate ventures throughout the United States and Central America. In the beginning of his career, Glimcher worked with the boutique hotel company Joie De Vivre in San Francisco and consulted for various businesses with respect to their financial and legal matters.

Glimcher received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and a Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
