Brent Berry, a successful real estate investor and financial consultant, was appointed to the Board by unanimous vote on August 24, 2018. Mr. Berry is known to many of you as the operator of Life Settlement Evaluators, a company that assisted investors in the revaluation of their IRAs during the Life Partners bankruptcy proceedings. Previously, he enjoyed a long career as a software executive and a business consultant. In recent years, he has focused his energies on purchasing and leasing residential properties. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in business management.
“I appreciate the confidence my fellow board members and their counsel have placed in me,” said Mr. Berry. “The most important thing for all of us is to obtain the maximum recovery possible out of the portfolio. I promise to assist in any way I can to ensure we accomplish this very important task. I understand what is at risk for all of us, as I too am an investor, and look forward to working with my fellow board members and the trustee to accomplish this very important mission.”
Mr. Berry was appointed to replace Marc Redus, who resigned from the Board last month. Mr. Redus had served in various governance capacities for the PHT since his appointment by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in December 2016. Over that period of time, his oversight was extremely valuable and the Trustee thanks him for his service.
