TOWN Residential is partnering with the Hudson Union Society, a members-only group that promises to connect members of the public with world leaders in business, entertainment, science and the arts.
The group has drawn everyone from Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams to Paula Abdul, Koffi Anan to Madeleine Albright through events that range from red carpet movie screenings to panel discussions.
As part of its collaboration with the group, TOWN will sponsor five HUS Insight sessions this year and next.
The sessions are conducted by HUS president Joe Pascal and upcoming guests include director of the CIA Porter Goss, political advisor Pat Buchanan and physician and author Deepak Chopra.
“At Hudson Union, we focus on intimate, high-quality service, where only the most eminent people visit, so the alliance with TOWN, a best-in-class corporation, is a natural fit for us,” said Pascal.
Jeffrey Appel, TOWN’s president and COO, said his firm feels “a natural synergy with the Hudson Union organization, which brings together extraordinary people to share their views and insights to our community. Our common core belief is that inspired people change the world.”
TOWN’s partnership with Hudson Union will also provide the firm’s employees, agents and brokers with “networking programs and engagement with industry and world-wide stakeholders and potential business partners.ˮ
