After establishing himself as a leader in the industry, Mr. Shustek never ceased to build upon his already impressive resume. In the early 2000’s, Michael served as Chairman of the Board of Directors, CEO, and Director of Vestin Group where he guided the company’s considerable growth in commercial mortgage lending.

Mr. Shustek is currently the Chief Executive Officer of The Parking REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust). He founded the company and is responsible for day to day operations and strategic planning. The Parking REIT was created with the intention of investing in a portfolio of
