Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, Lyra Intel is a tech startup built for CRE professionals by CRE professionals. Our solution was created out of a need for better information to influence decisions at the commercial property level. By designing the solution around our own needs, we’ve reinvented the entire process of fact finding and problem solving for property owners and managers across the market.
Lyra was founded by Rob Finlay who serves as the brand’s founder and Chief Executive Officer. Rob is a serial entrepreneur who has concentrated on developing technology to optimize various facets of commercial real estate. Over the past 25 years, he has launched several tech startups. Following his years on Wall Street with Credit Suisse First Boston and Lehman Brothers, Rob embarked upon an entrepreneurial career that has concentrated on innovative CRE tech.
In 2000, Rob founded Commercial Defeasance (DefeaseWithEase™) disrupting the industry with a one stop solution for a complex CRE process. DefeaseWithEase is responsible for thousands of expedited defeasance transactions across North America. Seven years later, Rob parlayed this success into another CRE disruptor with the launch of TCAM Asset Management, an independent investment management company focused on the affordable housing market. In 2015, Rob launched Investor Management Services (IMS), the fastest growing SaaS platform within the CRE space.
