Cougar Capital Management, a prominent real estate development company in Boston, is celebrating over 15 years of successful operations. Established in 2008 during a tough economic period, founder Dan Botwinik remained committed to expanding his company. While resources and his experience in real estate were minimal, the visionary was able to transform a small portfolio into hundreds of properties scattered across the US. As Cougar Capital Management widens its reach into other asset classes and regions, it is poised to serve investors and community residents equally.

Dan Botwinik has a diverse background in strategy consulting and due diligence for middle-market private equity transactions. Early in his career, he became interested in pursuing entrepreneurship. Real estate was particularly appealing to him as it had a low barrier to entry and provided tangible benefits to society.

Despite a lack of experience, Dan quickly became a property owner and developer. After purchasing his first property in 2008 and founding Cougar Capital Management, Dan had already completed four deals in four months. These early beginnings were full of exciting highs and difficult lows.

Dan believes that his family and friends’ support was critical for him to reach significant milestones in the industry. Cougar Capital Management has accumulated an attractive portfolio of properties since its inception. Currently, the firm has completed over 200 transactions and operates more than 1,000 apartments and retail, office, senior living, and hotel properties throughout the US.

Cougar Capital Management’s mission has always been to own and operate for the long-term, cultivating value for investors and community residents. The company has highlighted this pledge to service with numerous historic tax credit projects. Across multiple states, Cougar Capital Management has revived prominent structures that showcase American history. Some of the most notable projects the company has completed include renovating several old mills into market-rate apartments, including restoring a toy manufacturing facility and other dilapidated yet historically important buildings. Cougar Capital Management was awarded the 2020 Paul & Niki Tsongas Award for the outstanding preservation of a historic tax credit project in Salem, Massachusetts, and won this award twice since then for later projects.

Over the last 15 years, Cougar Capital Management has spearheaded a practical, yet innovative strategy for optimizing value in distressed properties. The company has supported local economic development through community partnerships and the creation of affordable housing. Its milestones are a testament to Cougar Capital Management’s diligence and trustworthiness. This summer, Cougar Capital Management plans to finish 17 market-rate apartments in a building that has been vacant since 2008. This project brings pride to the company’s small team that is passionate about providing quality housing.

“Cougar Capital Management is proud to have contributed to our community for over 15 years,” says founder Dan Botwinik. “Since the company was established, our team has been laser-focused on how to provide attractive returns to our investors while also serving the interests of the communities we are building in. Cougar Capital Management has stood out among competitors because of this humanitarian nature, and we hope to continue having a positive impact on American communities with more projects that restore beloved structures and erect new ones that will last for centuries.”
