AMERA COMPANIES, FOUNDER AND CEO
George Rahael founded the U.S. Amera Companies in 1979 and has an established track record of developing quality, market-shaping properties in South Florida’s premier growth cities, and managing their long-term success.
He shifted focus from real estate acquisition and development in his native Trinidad to select Florida markets. Starting with the acquisition of strip shopping centers and residential development in Coral Springs in the early 80s, he diversified into prime Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale office/retail properties in the 90s.
Amera has earned a leadership role in South Florida’s competitive commercial real estate arena by creating projects with positive, long-term market impact. Believing that a rising tide lifts all boats, he has added a market-wide master plan dimension to major projects, triggering a ripple effect of enhanced value.
Rahael is founder and former Chairman of the Trinidad & Tobago-USA Chamber of Commerce, Board Member of the Council of Executive Officers of Coral Springs, Member of Coral Springs Board of Economic Development, Appointee/Charter Board Member of the Coral Springs Sister Cities Association and Member of the CEO Council for Broward Alliance. In 2008, Rahael was awarded the Urban League of Broward County’s Community Builder Award for his significant and lasting impact on Broward County through his commitment and dedication to strengthen, change and empower the county’s communities.
