George Valiotis

C.E.O.

As head of acquisitions and development for Alma Realty Corp, a vertically integrated real estate development and management firm, George Valiotis successfully spearheaded the acquisition and stabilization of over 1.2 billion worth of distressed real estate in NY and NJ. This entailed repurposing large distressed portfolios of multifamily properties as well as several abandoned warehouses and hospital structures in to lively mixed-use multifamily properties. In 2013, one of the distressed opportunities was an existing glass recycling facility in Jersey City, Pace Glass Recycling. At the time, the US Glass recycling market was a notoriously difficult industry to enter. This project became his full-time career and lifelong passion. As the co-founder and CEO of Pace Glass, the company went from a small regional glass recycling company to becoming a pioneer in this industry by breaking ground on what is to be the largest and most technologically advanced glass recycling facility in the world. Pace Glass has set an ambitious 10 year goal to become the leading glass recycling company in the world.
