Eastbridge

The Eastbridge Group is a family holding company based in Luxembourg, created in 1990 by its founder, Yaron ‘Ronny’ Bruckner. Throughout its history, Eastbridge has invested in multiple markets and diverse industries such as real estate, consumer goods and F&B, telecom and media, and technology. Despite being a family-controlled business, Eastbridge, has attracted several renowned financial investors over its history. The genesis of Eastbridge was the change of the political and economic systems in the CEE region, followed by its expansion into Western European and the US markets.

Starting in the 1990’s, Eastbridge formed several joint ventures with leading global companies, including L’Oreal, Eastman Kodak, Nestle, Canal+, Inditex/Zara, LVMH, PPR (now the Kering Group) and many others. Additionally, Eastbridge developed several proprietary consumer brands in retail, F&B, and e-commerce. Eastbridge was also an early investor in Telecom and TV markets in CEE. Part of the Eastbridge consumer and TMT portfolio was listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, making it one of the largest Polish consumer goods conglomerates. Eastbridge had more than 30 corporate exits within the consumer sector, achieving over a 30% IRR. Eastbridge gradually divested from its consumer assets until 2016, but several consumer brands originated by Eastbridge are still operating in the CEE market.

In 1998, Eastbridge was the investor behind privatization of Domy Towarowe Centrum, a retail and real estate conglomerate. From this venture, Eastbridge has developed a strong real estate practice in Poland, with its subsidiary, Centrum Development and Investments, becoming one of the leading commercial developers in the country.

In 2003, Eastbridge began its investments in New York City, USA. Through its subsidiary, Downtown Holdings, Eastbridge has purchased several iconic buildings in Lower Manhattan, transforming old historic buildings from offices into multifamily rental residential units. Currently, Eastbridge owns several trophy assets, such as 63 Wall Street, 67 Wall Street, 20 Exchange Place, 70 Pine Street in New York.
