How We Got Here

EIMS's heritage dates to the 1960s, when its Zürich-based founders began to expand their asset acquisitions globally. They officially founded EIMS in 1983 to manage their U.S. real estate investments, which included office buildings, residential properties and raw land throughout the U.S. Ms. Gilbert joined the business three years after its founding and began to generate new opportunities. Under her leadership, EIMS expanded by offering a broader range of services. As EIMS grew, Aaron founded and operated a healthcare company, Physicians Management Group (“PMG”), which he ultimately sold to a private equity firm. Additionally, prior to the sale of PMG, Aaron joined EIMS in his current roles and brought additional clients and investment opportunities with him. EIMS became what it is today under Julie, Aaron and Harrison’s leadership by never wavering from the core principles of its founders: client service, protecting capital and finding creative solutions.
