Swig Shutters Brokerage

New, 2 comments

Sometimes the stars align perfectly, and Yair Levy news gets followed immediately by the latest from his bucket-bashing victim, developer Kent Swig. The Observer reports Swig just closed boutique brokerage Helmsley Spear, which he purchased in 2007. Or rather, Swig's underling closed the brokerage, because an employee tells the paper Swig "toyed with his PDA" during the announcement. The axed broker did not have kind words for Swig: "Kent lives in 740 Park Avenue and drives around in his chauffeured Lincoln Navigator SVU. This is a commentary on the hubris of a trust fund baby." Guess the severance package was less than impressive? [NYO]
