Tony Stern

Born and educated in the UK, Tony was hired as a real estate analyst in 1976 by TMGE, a boutique real estate development firm. Based in London, the firm closed on 2-3 deals per year targeting the residential market. The total active portfolio had an average value at that time of $3-5 million. The firm produced well above market returns for its private investors.

In 1982 Tony left TMGE and began his own real estate development firm. He purchased 2-3 properties per year and built up an active portfolio of 10 properties.

In parallel to a career of real estate transactions, Tony was also a successful entrepreneur. He acquired and sold several companies mostly in the UK’s embryonic wireless communication sector. In 1986, he had developed one of the UK’s leading fashion watch brands, “Claude Dolphin”, which he sold in 1990 to Monarch Industries.

In 1992, Tony founded Star Refining, an international precious metal refining company with offices in most major cities in Europe, Los Angeles and New York in the US, Shanghai and Beijing in China. Tony sold his interests in the business in October 2010 while the company had $22M in revenue and 60 employees. Today it is still a thriving international company.

In 1999, Tony co-founded Maker Mends Ltd, a jewelry repair company. By 2010, Maker Mends had become Europe’s largest repairing jeweler for the jewelry retail industry with workshops based in the UK and Thailand. Tony sold his interest in October 2013, and the company continues to grow year over year.

Since 2001, Tony has been investing steadily in the US property market. He brings into play a large network of business experts on each and every deal, employing the same business rationale that he has used in his 30 year business career.

Since 2013, Tony has been developing real estate full time.

Centennial Investments, Chief Financial Controller

                                                         Clive Byala

Clive was born and educated in South Africa and qualified in 1965 as a Chartered Accountant.
In 1973 Clive became a director of a large-scale real estate management company, Natal Investment Corporation where he specialized in the financial structure and administration of condominium and cooperative Associations.
After immigrating to the US in 1983 Clive invested in and became co-owner of a chain of 130 retail women’s clothing stores that operated in ten states, but Clive’s first love was always real estate and the lure of joining a partnership in Pennsylvania that dealt with residential real estate development and construction was too much. Clive divested his interest in the retail stores in 1994 and spent the next ten years as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Omega Homes Incorporated.
In 2005 after a year in retirement Clive decided this was not for him so he became a Personal Financial Planner at a major financial advisory company. In concert with this Clive invested in an Information Technology Company based in South Africa, Nicor IT Consulting where he was eventually asked to take on an executive management role. In 2013 Clive had to resign as a Personal Financial Planner to concentrate more effectively on Nicor. This he did until his retirement in 2016.  
In 2016 Centennial Investments was made aware of this uniquely talented man and we have utilized Clive’s knowledge on a part time basis to reduce extremely complicated data and information into a manageable and organized form. This enables us not only to track each and every one of our projects accurately and in real time but also to infuse confidence in all our investors, that our management reporting is precise and transparent in every respect.
