University of Pennsylvania Graduate

Gottesdiener was part of a group of boys who grew up on a mostly Jewish street in a New London neighborhood. It was a close-knit neighborhood where doing well in school mattered, but so did sports. Along with his friends, he played endless games of football, basketball, and baseball. There were times when Gottesdiener was among the last guys picked when the teams were chosen.

After high school graduation, Gottesdiener enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor's degree. Further, he earned his JD from Boston University. 

Northland Investment Corporation

In 1997, Gottesdiener made his first real estate play in Hartford. The Whalers had just left town, and the collapse of the Hartford franchise led to the collapse of someone else's deal to buy a downtown office building known as Metro Center. He was looking to get into Hartford and was looking to buy low. The building was a risk, empty and it was in a market that ranked almost last in the desirability of office space.

Gottesdiener thought it would take four years to fill the building, but Northland worked hard and got lucky. Northland Investment Corporation, a $10 billion real estate private equity company has been established by the industry in lists. The firm has the Best Places to Work in Multifamily for Women.

Buying Of Atlanta Deams

Gottesdiener recently stepped back from Northland Investment Co. and became the new majority owner of the Atlanta Dream WNBA team. He partnered with former Dream player Renee Montgomery and Gottesdiener’s colleague Suzanne Abair. Montgomery, a Black woman, will be the first former player to become both an owner and executive of a WNBA team.
