Prior to joining Continuum Partners, Asher was Managing Partner of Estes Capital, a commercial real estate investment advisory firm based in Denver that seeks value-add and opportunistic real estate investments on behalf of family office and high net worth investors.
Prior to Estes Capital, Asher spent nearly twelve years at Platinum Equity, an operations-focused private equity firm with approximately $36 billion of assets under management and a global, multi-industry portfolio. During his tenure at Platinum, Asher co-led over $450 million of value-add hospitality investments and oversaw the formation of Platinum’s hospitality operating subsidiary. Asher also co-led Platinum’s co-sponsored real estate fund initiative, designed to match Platinum’s institutional fund raise capabilities and asset management infrastructure with vertically integrated real estate investors and operators.
Asher first worked with Continuum Partners while at Platinum Equity, where he led the acquisition of a mixed-use Qualified Opportunity Zone project developed by Continuum. He continued to work with Continuum on this project and others during his tenure at Estes Capital.
Asher serves on the Board of Trustees of Minds Matter Colorado, an education and mentoring organization serving high-potential students from disadvantaged backgrounds. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California.
