Harvey Hernandez

Co-Founder and CEO

Fuelled by his innate creativity and armed with a diehard entrepreneurial spirit, Harvey Hernandez began his involvement in real estate development as a hands-on investor in the rapidly expanding South Florida market. With more than two decades in South Florida, he has observed first-hand the region’s tremendous capacity for change and progress. Holding firm to excellence from the forefront of the industry, Harvey continues to revitalize the high-end residential market by developing innovative projects that deliver the best in location, cutting-edge amenities, luxury finishes and forward-thinking design. 

Harvey entered the real estate industry following a successful foray scaling a technology startup that sold in 2000. The sale provided the initial capital for the $260 million dollar multifamily development firm, H&H Development Company -- a pivotal catalyst to Harvey’s career. These ventures paved the way for Harvey’s subsequent endeavors, giving him the necessary momentum to launch Newgard Development Group and Niido, the Airbnb-powered Real Estate and Technology Company. 

Niido partnered with Airbnb to create the first and only residential rental communities designed to encourage home-sharing. The partnership aims to support home-sharing via multifamily developments, tailor-made to optimize sharing and accommodate flexible living, with a suite of technology, services and amenities. The first “NiidoPowered by Airbnb” communities are opened in Orlando and Nashville with more locations planned for 2019.

"This is a wonderful conference. Coming from the US, it gives us exposure to operators and potential partners here in Europe that we wouldn’t normally have access to. We’re looking for some likeminded partners and there are some really great ones here at the conference."
