Mr. Follini has 25 years of experience in construction and professional real estate. He founded every company he has been involved with and he has in-depth experience in the acquisition, development and management of several types of real estate. These include: healthcare real estate/medical office; media infrastructure (film studios); industrial; land development; and senior housing. The following are just a few of his career highlights to-date:

In 1994, Mr. Follini developed a 400-acre site with Rockefeller Group Properties for the expansion of their renowned International Trade Center in Mount Olive, New Jersey.

From 1997 until 2000, Mr. Follini served as President of the Gun For Hire Production Centers, the largest media post-production facility for the film industry in New York. He conceived, designed and renovated all of Gun For Hire's 400,000+ square feet of digital media centers in New York, Miami, Vancouver, Toronto and Los Angeles. His New York facility earned the 1998 Crain's Magazine Small Business Award.

In 2000, he formed Kings Point Investors, LLC, solely to acquire and develop a 12-acre brownfields site on the waterfront in the New York City borough of Queens at a foreclosure auction. After an extensive environmental re-mediation and re-positioning, the property was sold three years later to a New York developer for mid- eight figures to become a $125 million housing and boardwalk/ green space complex.

In 2001, Mr. Follini created Noyack Medical Partners, LLC with the express purpose of investing in healthcare real estate. In a short time he has accumulated a $100MM+ portfolio exceeding return estimates for its investors.

One of the more notable healthcare acquisitions has been the 2005 purchase of the 23-acre former St. Agnes Hospital Campus in White Plains, New York at a foreclosure auction for $22,000,000. Within three years, Mr. Follini and his partners received entitlements for 730,000 square foot age-restricted Active Adult and Assisted Living Campus as well as medical offices. Net revenue for the mixed use development is on schedule to exceed $150,000,000.

Recently, Mr. Follini created the BLACKSWAN webzine, an innovative news and interview website highlighting BlackSwan real estate ideas - unexpected, impactful and successful. BlackSwan discusses such topics as: Healthcare real estate (medical office buildings, acute care centers); senior housing; sustainable building investment; student housing; affinity club hospitality; fractional development; and private airport ownership/management; etc. He is BLACKSWAN's Publisher.
