Moderator: Israel and the Future of Zionism

Ariel Ackerman is the founder and managing partner of Ackerman Development, a privately-owned company, specializing in real estate development, construction, and tech investments. The firm is well known in pioneering architecturally distinct residential and mixed-use projects.
Currently, Ackerman’s combined project-valuation is over $3 billion dollars.

Working in partnership with world-class architectural firms, currently, the company’s portfolio includes existing assets and ground-up development, including sky-scrapers in NYC and Miami. While some projects are handled in-house all the way from idea to completion, some projects are partnered with various prolific partners.

Ackerman’s strong proven track record allows the company to be nimble and selective in its projects. Presently, a robust pipeline of unique and imaginative projects are ongoing, such as 9 DeKalb and 247 Cherry Street in NYC, and Monad Terrace in Miami Beach – with a total of over 1,400 apartments currently underway.

Ariel Ackerman’s guiding principle for business is “Work hard in silence, let success be your noise”. 

With his extensive background and proven track record, both in Real-Estate, as an important player changing the skyline of New-York, and in technology, being involved with the first Israeli company to be bought by Google (Quiksee 2009), Ariel’s rare and dynamic experience positions him to be one of very few — if not the only — real estate developers in New York, who is disrupting the industry with technology.
