Greg Greene, a partner in Turtle Creek Holdings, started his career in the investment banking business and has experience in corporate finance, municipal finance, and real estate finance as a pioneer in the asset-backed securities field, having originated, structured and marketed some of the first CMO and CMBS transactions. In these capacities, he was involved in financing over $1 billion in assets. He also served as an advisor to the RTC on the first successful sale of Savings and Loan assets. In 1991, Mr. Greene formed Brazos River Leasing L.P., which eventually grew to over $1 billion in assets.
In the early nineties, Greg Greene and Dan Boeckman formed Turtle Creek Holdings (TCH) to acquire and reposition distressed assets. Since that time, TCH partners have been involved in the acquisition and financing of billions of dollars of assets in real estate, energy, and operating companies. Turtle Creek Holdings, through various affiliates, has also purchased over $300 million of assets in Asia. In 2005, Turtle Creek Holdings partnered with Brook Partners to develop a $200 million luxury residential high rise in Dallas, Museum Tower.
Greg has been actively involved in the revitalization of Downtown Dallas, and Turtle Creek Holdings was a recipient of the Chautauqua Award from the Dallas Heritage Society for its work on the conversion of the Tiche-Goettinger (Joske’s) department store into a mixed-use facility consisting of retail, lofts and the Universities Center at Dallas.
Greg has a Bachelor’s degree from St. John’s University and an MBA from the Owen School of Management at Vanderbilt University, where he recently served on the Alumni Board.
