David Solomon is a Partner and board member of U.S. Capital Advisors LLC. Previously David founded, chaired and was CEO of Condera Advisors which was recently acquired by U.S. Capital Advisors. Condera Advisors, a Houston-based boutique advisory firm with a focus on alternative investments, was formed in 2008 when then CEO David Solomon and President Phil Philibosian acquired Redstone Asset Management from The Redstone Companies. At the time, David was serving as Chairman and CEO of Redstone. The company was renamed Condera Advisors, and the change allowed David and his team to further concentrate on providing high-end diligence and portfolio construction using traditional and alternative asset classes for their clients.

Examples of private equity transactions completed during Mr. Solomon’s tenure at Redstone include the acquisition and repositioning of the Houstonian Hotel Club & Spa and the initial seed investment for what is today Camden Property Trust, a leading multi-family Real Estate Investment trust.
