Brian Patterson

Founder, Managing Partners

Brian helped found White Star Real Estate in 1997, later serving as Managing Partner of White Star Real Estate Russia, White Star Real Estate Polska, and White Star Real Estate Europe. Brian came to Poland from his native United States in 1992. Prior to helping found White Star Real Estate, he led the development of two of Poland’s first modern commercial projects following its transition to a free-market economy — the Warsaw Distribution Center and the Diamond Business Park. During this time, Brian’s entrepreneurial activities reached beyond the development field: he co-founded Archive Management Solutions with business partner Tom Keller, which was later sold to the world leader of the records management industry, Iron Mountain. To this day, Brian and Tom are still partners with Iron Mountain in Russia, Ukraine, and Denmark.
Since White Star Real Estate’s founding, Brian has helped the company amass a diverse development portfolio of over 50 properties and 2.5 million square meters, and a property management portfolio exceeding 60 properties and 1.6 million square meters. In recognition of his contribution to the real estate development field, Brian was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Central & Eastern European Quality Awards in Warsaw, Poland.
Brian is a graduate of Stanford Business School in California (USA).
