For five years now he has privately invested in technology and real estate industries. Becker’s interests in lands and buildings grew when in ZINIO and NaviSite. It was from there that he chose to venture into condominium expansion in Miami and New York. Currently, Arthur is working on building a luxury residential condominium in Tribeca and other several Town Houses in New York. Arthur finds the development stages of buildings fascinating. The design, construction, entitlements, marketing, and financing are some of the aspects of real estate that thrill Arthur Becker though he is most effective in coordination and organization of different expertise. Regarding bio tech, Becker has exposure in medicine though he has no training in it. The recent trends in treating cancer excite him.
According to The Real Deal, over time Becker has tried several businesses, others have failed, but he has been using those experiences as lessons. He started working as early as 16 when he joined Parks Department in one of the towns. He also had a construction company when in college. The company dealt with dis-assembling houses. Though he didn’t complete his graduate studies in business, he has been successful in his entrepreneurial career because of his intelligence, being flexible in strategy, listening to others and being informed at all times. The policy which one adopts should reflect the business vertical for it to succeed. Arthur adds that talent also plays a significant role in driving success.
