Adam R. Lubkin is the President and CEO of Ibis Development Group, a South Florida based real estate acquisitions firm founded in 2006. After selling all of its commercial real estate holdings in November, 2005, Ibis Development was founded based on an eventual accurate prediction that the real estate market would deteriorate and that a niche to acquire distressed commercial assets from banks and other financial institutions would emerge. During the 2008-2012 real estate and credit recession, Ibis Development was on the front lines acquiring bank owned and distressed properties. Today, Ibis continues to be a leader in purchasing marketed and off-market properties as well as lender notes and properties.
Ibis Development Group partners with premier real estate developers throughout the US and abroad in sourcing and purchasing real estate and notes from institutions, private owners, funds, and a variety of other sources. To date, Ibis has acquired more than $800+ million in real estate since its inception. In addition, Mr. Lubkin is also the CEO of Ibis Triple Net, LLC, a single tenant acquisition company, Ibis Funding Corporation, a commercial mortgage brokerage company and Ibis Insurance Group, an independent insurance agency and division of Century Risk Advisors in Coral Gables and Boca Raton.
Mr. Lubkin graduated The George Washington University with a BBA in Finance and International Business and a MBA in Marketing from his alma mater. He is a Founding Father of the Greek fraternity Phi Kappa Psi at GWU. Mr. Lubkin is active with many charitable organizations including former President and board member of the South Florida Touchdown Club Foundation, North Miami board member of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Make a Wish Foundation, The George Washington University South Florida Alumni board member and Alumni Admissions Representative and former board member of the University of Miami Baseball Coaches Advisory Committee.
