Our Haute 100 list details the accomplishments of the most influential people in each of our markets—Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These people continue to make moves, so rather than waiting for the next Haute 100 issue to come out, we thought we’d provide you with regular updates on those Haute 100 members who are making headlines. On our Haute 100 Miami list is Rony Seikaly, the Miami Heat player turned recording artist and deejay.
Company: Quadrant Investment Group
Industry: Real Estate
What Made Him Haute: Thanks to an illustrious career playing in the NBA for the Miami Heat, as well as successful real estate ventures, Seikaly is a leading figure in the city. Early in his career with the Heat, he made waves by breaking several team records, amassing incredible career statistics, and earning the title The Spin Doctor. The name has a double meaning; Seikaly is also a deejay with a penchant for house music. He’s played some of the hautest clubs and lounges in the world, including Miami Beach’s LIV. Since its inception in 2005, Quadrant Investment Group, of which Seikaly is CEO, has created and managed three separate funds with $128 million in investor equity and $350 million in real estate. Seikaly is personally invested in each of those funds.
What Makes Him Haute Now: With recent news surrounding the Miami Heat and their upcoming James-Wade-Bosh domination, it is no surprise that past Heat players’ names will also appear in the media. Rony Seikaly is no exception. However “The Spin Doctor” has some exciting news of his own to share, and it has nothing to do with basketball. The former Heat superstar is also a talented deejay and just recently signed with Subliminal Records, one of the most respected house and dance music record labels. His first single, “Come With Me” will be released by the end of this month, with additional tracks scheduled for consecutive release every four to five weeks after that.
