With 40 years of property management, asset management, receivership and bankruptcy experience, Trigild has maximized value for thousands of assets in industries including commercial real estate, multifamily, and hospitality. From building value through property management for investors to solving complex problems for lenders, Trigild applies experience and depth of knowledge to every assignment.
Trigild traces its roots to 1976, when Bill Hoffman founded Trigild as a property management business.
In the 1980’s when the Saving & Loans crisis hit, an attorney asked Hoffman if he could serve as a court-appointed receiver for a defaulted hotel, and a new Trigild business line emerged. Over the next five years, Trigild was named receiver and management company for nearly 200 assets, including over 100 hotels, 50 multifamily projects, 15 commercial properties, and even a barge terminal.
After the S&L crisis was resolved, Trigild continued managing projects, and while it was assumed that the receivership boom would subside, in 2004 fast food restaurants and gas and convenience stores hit a rough patch. In a five-year period, Trigild operated and was frequently receiver for over 700 of these assets.
Since the 2008 Global Financial crisis, Trigild has operated over 15 million square feet of commercial space, over 40,000 hotel and multifamily units, and served as fiduciary receiver and bankruptcy trustee for assets ranging from hotels, apartment complexes, and retail centers to unique businesses, such as a $1.6 billion TIC syndicator and a large food processing plant.
We attract the best and the brightest in the industry, allowing us to provide the highest quality services to our clients. Our talent is trusted, experienced, innovative, dedicated, and dynamic. Join the Trigild legacy.
Trigild has successfully handled over 1500 court-appointed fiduciary assignments throughout the country, operated hundreds of multimillion dollar businesses and liquidated billions of dollars of business, real estate, FF&E, and related assets. We have served in multiple roles under the auspices of numerous courts – including as Receiver, Bankruptcy Trustee and Chief Restructuring. Equipped with decades of experience, Trigild is an expert at devising long-term solutions and sound strategies that maximize recovery.
