Paul Bensman, a born entrepreneur, got his business start in grade school, selling candy to the neighborhood children on his driveway in Southfield Michigan. He learned about target markets and profit margins at an early age.
Bensman has always had a keen sense of timing; a natural ability to spot rising trends, read the market, and identify growth opportunities. He started three successful businesses while still in college, including a DJ service and a chain of retail stores known as Crazy Benzy’s which he later franchised.
After years spent learning all aspects of the retail industry, Bensman entered the world of commercial real estate with a focus on retail tenants and properties. He started his own brokerage less than 10 years later and is currently CEO of Locations Commercial Real Estate Services.
Today, Bensman runs multiple companies and also offers business consulting. He and his son, Ian, created the concept for NRM Streamcast. His role in the development of a live streaming media network is another example of his uncanny ability to identify a business sector that is primed for explosive growth.
