Our story begins in the early 2000s, when Garry Pesochinsky, one of Lion’s co-founders, began his first property development project.
From a young age, Garry Pesochinsky has known the value of property. His father flipped properties for 25 years, and after seeing the potential that property development offered, Garry began working on property developments as a second job. After achieving success on his personal property development projects, Garry decided to quit his day job and start his own company. Property development had allowed Garry to escape from his 9-to-5, and he wanted to help others achieve what he had.
When Garry started his own business, he worked on property development along with a suite of other financial services. From two employees working out of a spare bedroom, the business grew to 80 employees in three states, with $20 million in funds under management and servicing over 100 clients.
In early 2018, property development had rapidly outgrown and outperformed the other financial services of his business, so Garry decided to return to his roots and focus on what he was truly excelled at: property development.
And in order to do that, Garry needed a new business partner.
