According to a release, his experience in the PropTech industry will play a vital role in driving SmartRoof's growth throughout institutional commercial real estate's various asset classes.
Schanbaum has worn many hats throughout his years as a startup executive, bringing expertise in sales, HR and strategy functions to his new position. A lawyer since 2007, he also brings 13-plus years of experience as in-house counsel.
