Warren Kirshenbaum – CEO
Warren founded Cherrytree in 2011 and has spent the past eleven years building a highly specialized tax credit consultation, brokerage, and syndication firm. He has relied on three decades of experience and a law background to focus on the structural and development finance aspects of tax incentivized real estate-based transactions — particularly in the environmental remediation (Brownfields), renewable energy, and historic rehabilitation areas.
Born and raised in Johannesburg, Warren came to the United States in 1989. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, a Juris Doctor Degree from New England Law, and an LLM from New York University School of Law.
Warren entered the tax credit field over 20 years ago, at first working in the sub-specialty of affordable housing. His skills and portfolio soon expanded to include tax credit acquisition for historic preservation, Brownfields remediation and renewable energy. Since forming Cherrytree, he has presented at dozens of industry conferences nationwide.
Married for 29 years, Warren and his wife Liz have raised three children. Warren has run marathons including the Boston Marathon, raising charity for Project Hope. Additionally, he loves to ski, golf, and scuba dive.
