The Hawk Group's success comes from its ability to secure partners that bring value to a project. In the European operation, it entered into a partnership with a group of Swiss nationals, familiar with the financial model that, collectively, brought experience and expertise in the five disciplines (Retail, Manufacturing, Construction, Hospitality and Services). The Hawk Team designed and implemented the successful sales initiative.

The Hawk Team

Rebecca Varney married Ezio Valentini and became his business partner.  This resulted in a career-long involvement in the real estate, finance, entertainment, hospitality and contact center industries.  She manages the financial affairs of the company and supervises the administrative functions.

As a sales organization, the Hawk Group is unique because it does not have an in-house sales team. Because of the diversity of the projects undertaken, a specific team is developed for each project.
