Before founding EMM Group in 2006, Mark Birnbaum was the promotions director of a 22,000 square-foot club in New York. It was here that he learned the ropes of the business. He learned the ins and outs of promotions, marketing, public relations and event management. It didn’t take long for Birnbaum to recognize that his drive and aptitude for the industry could take him to the top, but no one could have envisioned the level of success he would reach with EMM Group partners Eugene Remm and Michael Hirtenstein.
Eugene Remm attended Long Island’s Hofstra University, where he ran a popular bar and ventured the world of real estate. In his senior year of college he used all of his tip money, ten thousand dollars, to purchase five houses. Shortly after graduating, Remm merged with B.R. Guest Restaurants where he ran the lounge, Level V. Remm and Birnbaum met after throwing rival birthday parties, both were born on June 10. The two became fast friends and decided to go into business together.
Michael Hirtenstein was the president and chief executive officer at WestCom Corporation since 1992. He founded the company and funded it all on his own. His company was one of the premier point-to-point dedicated private line providers to the financial community. He ended up selling the company in 2008 and quickly joined forces with Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm in EMM Group.
Since Mark Birnbaum founded EMM Group in 2006, the company has reached inconceivable heights of success. It is evident that EMM Group will continue to lead the hospitality industry for some time to come.
