Announcing New CRE Manager

Sep 18, 2018

Steve Zegarski, Corporate Real Estate Manager

We are pleased to announce that Steve Zegarski has joined The Branch Group as our CRE Manager, on Monday, September 17, 2018.

Steve was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and graduated from the University of Dayton with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. During his time at UD, he realized that he wanted to be a high school teacher. From Dayton, he attended Virginia Tech, received a Masters degree in Education and earned his teaching certification. His first job was teaching Chemistry and coaching football at Cave Spring High School in Roanoke. After two years of teaching, he had the opportunity to work on the Young Life staff in Roanoke and stayed in that position for eleven years.

In early 2005, Steve made the decision to take a position as a sales consultant in the pharmaceutical industry. He spent thirteen years in the pharmaceutical industry, the last three as a District Business Manager, leading a team of 8-11 sales representatives in several states. A significant accomplishment was leading his district to finish 1st of 59 districts throughout the country in 2017.

In 2002, Steve started a real estate investment company that would help pay for his kids’ college and provide retirement income. Over the course of 16 years, he developed a significant knowledge base, resources, and professional relationships, and is eager to employ them at the Branch Group.

The creation of the Corporate Real Estate function and the recruiting of Steve Zegarski are important steps in our growth, profitability, and Long Range Strategic Planning and Management endeavors. We will be able to better manage what we already own and make more informed decisions on real estate related opportunities as they arise.
