WHO WE ARE

GABRIEL SHEHEBAR

Founder/Partner
Gabriel’s background prior to launching Gideon Asset Management includes real estate investing, private equity, brand investments, and mergers and acquisitions. 
As part owner in the Rainbow Shops, one of the largest privately held clothing chains in the USA with over 1,200+ location nationwide, Gabriel’s deal management skills and deep knowledge and understanding of the retail market, propel our investment spirit and experience. 
Gabriel’s quick reaction to investment opportunities has led to ownership in well known clothing brands, and a national restaurant chain among other past investments. 
With the launch of Gideon, we have captured this spirit and have incorporated it into our reaction to commercial real estate acquisition opportunities.
