ErosAdragna.com - Professional Overview
Eros Adragna is a senior-level executive whose creative, perceptive approach to complex residential and commercial construction mirrors that of every venture he has spearheaded over the past 15+ years.
An entrepreneurial and results-oriented professional, Eros believes that true innovation cannot thrive without a strong foundation-- and he has demonstrated a comprehensive capability to execute projects in real estate development, construction management, finance, marketing and sales, and design.
After attending Fashion Institute of Technology and SUNY Farmingdale, Eros Adragna began his career in marketing and sales. In 1995 he joined Family Golf Centers in Farmingdale, New York as Assistant Marketing Manager, serving in a project management role in corporate branding and facility promotions. Two years later Eros established a foothold in the burgeoning interactive media industry by founding Two Pixel, LLC. The startup offered visual communication services to powerhouse clients such as Penthouse, Coalco, Virgin Records, The Corcoran Group, Forkosh Construction, and Duggal Visual Solutions -- some of which Eros would go on to work for directly in marketing capacities.
In 2001 Eros was hired to lead a new Interactive Media division for Duggal Visual Solutions, developing strategies that allowed their diverse clientele (including Disney, Tommy Hilfiger, Campari, Miramax and Vornado) to maximize the potential of the emerging technology. However, the use of interactive media within b2b and client acquisitions was still markedly limited at the time, and Eros sought to transition into the booming real estate sector, where he could use his forward-thinking knowledge of marketing and technology to drive wholly new enterprises.
Eros joined the Corcoran Group as an Associate Broker/Marketing Consultant in 2002. He was selected to execute the sale and rental of multi-million dollar residences, as well as oversee the concept design, development, and deployment of marketing materials to promote properties for landlord and developers. Eros quickly proved his acumen within the real estate space during his tenure at the Corcoran Group, earning his spot in the Million-Dollar Club and marketing luxury downtown developments in excess of $300MM sell out. In 2004 Eros transitioned to the development side of real estate, where he has succeeded ever since.
As the founding partner at Delshah Capital, Eros directed the development and consistent execution of all real estate product marketing and company branding to meet sales/rental initiatives. Total synergy among all involved parties was of paramount importance, and Eros constantly worked to build and maintain effective relationships between all hired creative and construction teams, as well as investors and financial partners.
From energy-efficient NYSERDA programs to UAE embassy condo conversion and marketing initiatives in Washington, DC, Eros was able to grow a portfolio that today is in excess of $500 million, while using his financial prowess to remain well within the budgeting constraints he himself developed annually.
Eros’ next position was Director of Marketing & Sales at Titan Realty & Construction, the company behind such iconic spaces as the Tesla Showroom in Red Hook and the LivWork projects throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. Although initially hired solely in a marketing and sales capacity for Titan and ABCON Builders, Eros became very proficient in planning, executing, and managing special projects. One of his most significant accomplishments embodies his ability to succeed through all phases of the project lifecycle: the relationship which he fostered between Titan and Avalon Bay Communities and the Hyatt Hotels.
After implementing creative marketing strategies that secured Avalon Bay Communities as a Titan client, Eros began to plan and execute thousands of their residential unit renovations for ADA and FHA compliance projects and common area remerchandising. As he oversaw numerous extensive replacement projects with tenant in occupancy retrofits on a daily basis, Eros observed a serious need to streamline and standardize the documentation process. Utilizing the technical acuity he had begun to cultivate a decade earlier, Eros developed and programmed the TRC Client Resource Management Portal, in which his project managers and superintendents documented each and every unit’s conditions and retrofit(s) to generate vital project data for Avalon and the Department Of Justice for critical data to comply with the DOJ’s Consent Decree mandate. Eros concluded his tenure at Titan in 2015.
Eros Adragna is now Managing Director at Hyperion Development, a Construction Management Consultancy Company based in Texas. He has served as investor and developer on all company projects and now offers consultations on ADA retrofits and lobby remerchandising projects for the Hyatt Hotel in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. His ability to identify risks and inefficiencies, and then address them with a blend of technical knowledge and creative leadership, has made him an unparalleled leader in his field.
Outside of his career, Eros Adragna is a Board Member of Huntington Station Latin Quarter (HSLQ), a community organization serving the underprivileged and underrepresented population of Huntington Station.
