Ever detail- and outcome-oriented, Paul Donhauser considers himself the Bill Belichick of corporate real estate management, although he may be more charismatic than the New England Patriots’ famously taciturn coach. He’s also much less secretive about his game plan. Donhauser might even like to see other companies, including competitors, borrowing from the winning strategy he […]

Based in Lexington, Massachusetts, Dreamline Modular […]

SilverLining Inc.

Josh Wiener grew up helping his parents restore the Manhattan townhouse they bought in 1963, but his time for sorting nails has long come and gone, replaced by loftier goals.
