In 2000, Cyril Morel started his first business venture: selling software on his Palm Pilot IIIC. It would not be his last. On graduating from Baruch College with a degree in Economics, Cyril started his career in the United Nations where he used technology to transform peacekeeping operations, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Four years later, he left the organization for the private sector and ultimately, Synapse, to bring technological innovation into the real estate business, and the world at large. As Senior Partner and Chief Operating Officer, Cyril commands the firm’s day-to-day operations and supports senior management in mapping a strategic path forward.
