Our Partner, Alan F. Greenwald, died peacefully on August 31, 2017 after three and a half years of living with and fighting pancreatic cancer. He was the beloved husband of Lynne and loving father of Hillary and Allison.
Alan joined Terra Search Partners in 2011, where he helped build and then lead our work in affordable housing and community development. His work at Terra Search allowed Alan to combine his depth of knowledge in real estate with the lessons in leadership he'd learned throughout a long and successful career. Alan helped dozens of companies in the low-income housing sector and was a highly valued partner in the firm.
Prior to joining Terra Search, Alan had a distinguished career in real estate, including as President and CEO of the AF Evans Company in the Bay Area, Director of Multifamily Structured Transactions for Fannie Mae in Washington, DC, and Vice President at Oxford Realty Services Corporation. He started his career as an attorney, holding positions as Deputy General Counsel at the US Merit Systems Protection Board, Special Assistant to the General Counsel at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Counsel and Consultant for the Rand Corporation and as an attorney with Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison. He is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley where he received a Juris Doctor and Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
Alan was member of the Urban Land Institute and its Affordable Housing Council, the State Bar of California, Alliance of Chief Executives, and Lambda Alpha (an honorary land economics organization). Alan also served as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Multi Housing Council. He was deeply committed to his community. He was a founding member and Treasurer of Community Council for the Homeless at Friendship Place (a non-profit organization providing coordinated social services to homeless citizens of Washington DC.) and a board member of the Community Housing Trust.
