About Us

Eagle Brand Consulting

Eagle Brand was founded in 2008 to provide guidance to banks and other commercial real estate lending institutions as well as commercial real estate owners in working-out distressed hotel and vacation ownership loans.  Work-out services related to other asset classes including retail, office and residential real estate loans and REOs were added shortly thereafter. Since those early days, Eagle Brand has continued to add to its team and to add service offerings that now include management consulting, asset management, development, executive search and staffing.
