Michael Tsakalos

“I am passionate about unlocking the full potential of undervalued, underutilized and underappreciated assets, properties, companies and people.


I'm invested in Baltimore and follow in the legacy of my big fat Greek family who helped convert a former area of ghosted warehouses into the vibrant Harbor East neighborhood. Our family's immigrant roots and work ethic laid the foundation that started H&S Bakery and continues today through various meaningful projects throughout the region.”
