MULTI-GENERATIONAL FAMILY OWNERSHIP
Founded in 1972, The Broe Group is a privately held company encompassing two generations of family-ownership.
Founder and CEO
Pat Broe founded his namesake company in 1972 as a Denver-based real estate asset management firm. Beginning with small residential and commercial rehabilitations, he soon began to accumulate a portfolio of properties. He began trading land, assembling development sites and repositioning commercial properties, primarily in the central business district of Denver. These activities provided the base from which The Broe Group grew and diversified into its present form.
Over the course of four decades, Mr. Broe has built a diversified private equity investment enterprise with a multi-billion-dollar asset base with investments spanning a wide range of industries, including commercial and residential real estate, medical office buildings and assisted living communities, diverse transportation-based companies, medical devices, agricultural investments as well as energy ventures such as oil and gas exploration and production and coal mining.
Mr. Broe focuses on the strategic direction of the company, investment policy and financing activities, and the identification of attractive assets for acquisition.
Kiki Broe is currently a partner at Three Leaf Ventures, a venture-stage fund focused on leveraging wireless communication technology to transform the conventional healthcare model.
