Gabe Fried is CEO of Hilco Streambank. Gabe began liquidating intangibles in 2000 when he was retained to dispose of his former employer’s digital and trademark assets. During this initial assignment he learned several valuable lessons.
First of all, the market needs intangible asset disposition expertise. Second, a deep understanding of the assets is key to running a successful sale. And finally, the exclusive nature of intangibles creates strategic value for the owner not found in other asset classes.
Gabe pioneered the distressed brokerage of intangibles during his roles as liquidator, auctioneer, investor, buyer’s agent, expert witness, and appraiser. He launched Streambank when it was time to build a team, and the Streambank team joined Hilco in 2011.
