Tom Hoban, Chairman & Co-Founder

Founded in 1987, Tom Hoban, Chairman, and his brother, Shawn Hoban, CEO, have led the Coast Group of Companies from a very modest start into a diversified group of property management, facility services, specialized construction, advisory, transaction and investment companies serving private and institutional owners throughout the Pacific Northwest and United States.

Today, The Coast Group is one of the region’s largest and most respected real estate services firms of its kind, managing more than $5B in real estate assets (multi-family, office, flex, mixed use, self-storage, retail, industrial) with a service offering to property owners, franchisors, investors, and developers throughout the United States.

Tom leverages his vast network, engaging personality and refreshingly transparent approach into many venues, including his long-running column in the Herald Business Journal, as a freelance writer and as a guest speaker or lecturer.

Tom graduated from The University of Notre Dame in 1984 with a BA in Finance and began his career as a commercial lending officer with First Interstate Bank in Seattle. It was there that he and Shawn identified a market need for Coast and launched the first of their companies, Coast Property Management.

For over three decades, Shawn has been responsible for establishing and growing each of the operating businesses in the Coast Group of Companies and Hoban Family Office. An unusually gifted mind, Shawn is the integrator and strategist for the brother’s various ventures with a particular gift of taking complicated situations and making them simple, then building an effective team to execute. A leader of incredible character, Shawn also possesses a competitive streak that has shaped the brothers’ ventures together.

With offerings in property management, specialized construction, advisory and investment services, under Shawn’s leadership, their companies have grown to manage or invest in over $5 billion in assets.

Shawn holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Finance from the University of Notre Dame 1988 and is both a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and a Certified Property Manager (CPM) with the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).
