Daniel Gleich | Partner
Daniel Gleich’s entrepreneurial career began in his freshman year of high school. It was an early spring afternoon when, as a young 14 year old, he took a trip to the local county clerk’s office. There he filed his inaugural business certificate, and in the process founded DPG Enterprises. DPG’s initial venture was Creditline, a company that helped consumers repair their credit ratings and get started with new credit lines. Subsequently, during his college years, he was instrumental in the formation of Time Equipment Corporation, a time and attendance business. He streamlined the operations at TEC and established a roadmap for future growth. This led to TEC’s successful positioning in the industry, and it is known today as one of the premier time and attendance companies in the New York metro area. Upon graduation Mr. Gleich served as Managing Director at R.B. Miller & Associates, a broadly focused real estate group where his client list included names like the Museum of Modern Art and the McKesson Corporation. In 1997, Mr. Gleich began his long standing partnership with Mervyn Klein and founded Hudson Development LLC, a company specializing in commercial & industrial real estate. While there he led operations in developing large scale projects like the 400,000 sf College Point Graphic Communications Center, Prada USA's 175,000 sf headquarters and distribution center, and numerous other industrial and commercial developments.
