Horovitz, a 25-year veteran of commercial real estate, joins the board following the appointment of Bob Levine, founding partner of one of the world’s fastest growing commercial real estate firms, and a $25 million investment by Harmel Rayat, a commercial real estate investor and the chairman of the company. SolarWindow has targeted commercial buildings as its first market for electricity-generating glass products.
Horovitz brings decades of experience in commercial real estate, ranging from property acquisition, finance, design, construction, marketing, leasing and post-development work.
During his career, Horovitz has held executive positions managing or marketing upwards of 3 million square feet of commercial, industrial and apartment properties, which are the initial target market for the company’s transparent electricity-generating windows. Presently, Horovitz is VP of development for Omnicron, one of the largest integrated development, design and construction firms in the region.
“For years, I reached out to Steve for help with numerous complex business challenges. Each time, he thoughtfully provided practical and easy-to-implement solutions. Along with his expansive direct industry experience, these are attributes that will serve our management team well in the years to come,” said Rayat.
