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.

“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.”

  • The Week @ Webb - Together in January

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a periodic photojournal of events on and off Webb's campus. Did it feel like January lasted 31,000 days instead of just 31? I know that for me, it's important to spend as much time as I can with other people when life gets really busy. We all do better when we surround ourselves with friends and family and that's what I tried to capture in this latest gallery.
