Eastern Union taps new leader for NYC investment sales business

Eastern Union has announced the appointment of Ben Weiss (pictured) as senior managing director of investment sales for New York City. The commercial brokerage said the move signals the expansion of its investment sales business into the greater tri-state region.

Weiss joined Eastern Union after an 18-year tenure at The Besen Group, an NYC-based investment sales firm. Before that, he was director of business development at CRX Institutional Health Care, a pharmaceutical vendor.

"Ben Weiss brings a proven record of accomplishment in the investment sales sector in the New York City market," said Abraham Bergman, president and CEO of Eastern Union. "He recognizes that Eastern Union's market dominance in commercial finance has yielded healthy, long-term business relationships with countless owners. Ben is ideally suited to capitalize on these synergies to build out our existing investment sales operation into the greater New York area."
