Mr. Simon has over 35 years of experience in virtually every aspect of real estate development. During his career Mr. Simon has worked in over 100 communities across the U.S. and internationally. After spending 27 years with the Taubman Company Mr. Simon started his own consulting firm where he again worked with Taubman in the pursuit of international retail development opportunities and partnerships in Japan, South Korea, China, Qatar, and Dubai.
