President & CEO
Richard Weintraub, President and Founder of Weintraub Real Estate Group, has distinguished himself as a community-oriented developer of unparalleled vision and creativity, matched only by his sensitivity to the unique needs of each neighborhood in which he develops.
A fourth-generation Angeleno and a graduate of the University of Southern California (MBA), Mr. Weintraub's love for the City of Los Angeles is rooted in reverence for its culture and history. Fascinated since childhood by the region's rich heritage, he has created a real estate firm that encompasses the diversity of Southern California.
In many ways, Mr. Weintraub is a new kind of developer, carefully selecting buildings and overseeing developments that truly benefit the communities they serve. Under his guidance and strategic management, WREG has acquired, developed or entitled properties worth over $1 billion through its real estate ventures.
From restoring St. Vibiana, the original Archdiocese in Los Angeles, to revitalizing an old lumber yard in Malibu into a vibrant retail destination, Mr. Weintraub has been the driving force behind visionary projects throughout Los Angeles County and the Southern California region.
Mr. Weintraub has shown his commitment to Southern California and beyond through his philanthropic efforts. He currently sits on the board of LA River and Pilot Light Foundation, and has worked with the Valley Community Clinic in San Fernando Valley and The Boys and Girls Club of Malibu.
