David Loo '79

David J. Loo ’79 is a founding principal and co-managing partner of New York’s Hudson Realty Capital, a real estate fund management firm that invests in real estate and mortgage debt. To date, Hudson has acquired and managed more than $3.5 billion of assets through its five private equity funds. Loo’s responsibilities at Hudson include raising capital, strategy, new loan originations, and administration.

Hudson was formed in 2003 from an alliance between SWH Funding Corporation and Newbridge Realty Capital, which Loo co-founded in 2001. Loo was previously with Credit Suisse First Boston, where he established the Portfolio Bids Group and served on the Real Estate Investment Committee. From 1994 to 1996, he was a member of the Praedium Group’s Recovery Fund.

Loo earned his B.A. from Wesleyan University and his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. He and his wife Valerie live in New York City with their two children, where he serves on the President’s Council of Wesleyan University and the board of directors of Civic Builders, which funds and builds facilities for charter schools. He serves as chairman of the Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees. 

“When Taylor [Stockdale] suggested that I join the board at Webb, I was a little skeptical, as I am obviously not in any physical proximity to campus,” says Loo. “However, Taylor also mentioned that over 50 percent of Webb’s recent graduating classes are attending colleges in the Northeast. With more and more alumni in this part of the world, it was important to him that the board includes representation from the East Coast. Given that Webb was such a seminal experience for me, I am honored to be able to participate in the stewardship of the school and hopefully give something back to the Webb community.”

  • About Art School

    In an expose of sorts, one pegged to the publication of Gary Alan Fine’s new book Talking Art (U of Chicago Press, 2018), Charlie Tyson explores the facts and fictions surrounding MFA programs in the visual arts in America. A review of Fine’s book finds that seven of the 10 most expensive higher-education institutions in the U.S. are, in fact, art schools. But is it worth it? Maybe, if you want to be a professional artist. Tyson’s article also notes that more than half of the top 250 best-selling American artists at auction have an MFA.
