    Ben Lambert was the founder and chairman of Eastdil Secured, one of New York City's leading investment sales firms, working out of its 40 West 57th Street headquarters. He died in late January 2021 at age 82.

    Lambert founded the firms precursor, Eastdil, in 1967, while working at Eastman Dillon, an investment bank in New York. Eastdil was at the forefront of the emerging trend of Wall Street houses underwriting real estate developers and investors.

    Eastdil went through various mergers and ownership deals, before Wells Fargo bought it in 1999. That bank then merged Eastdil with Secured Capital out of Los Angeles in 2006. Through it all, Lambert maintained a leadership role.

    Though lower-key than some of its rivals, Eastdil Secured has become one of the larger investment sales firms in New York City. In 2011, for instance, Lamberts company led all investment sales firms in arranging $4.5 billion in deals (that was up from $2.9 billion in deals in 2010, which still placed Eastdil Secured at No. 2 among investment sales brokerages).

    Before starting Eastdil Secured, Lambert worked as a textile salesman and in the mortgage business. He and his brother owned a pasta and cheese chain as well; and his family had a jewelry business in New York City, where Lambert grew up.

    Lambert earned an art history degree from Brown.

    notes
    The bank signed a 16-year lease for 13 floors in the building. The bank had previously been close to signing a 300,000-square-foot lease at 120 Park Avenue, the former Philip Morris headquarters, when Bloomberg LP swooped in to take 400,000 square feet at the building and Wells Fargo had to look elsewhere.
