MANAGEMENT / BOARD
As a third generation Las Vegan and a dynamic entrepreneur, Jeffrey Fine has launched a series of successful businesses in real estate, retail, and gaming in Southern Nevada.
Established in 2002, Fine Concepts is the managing entity of Fine’s food and beverage ventures and was created for the initial purpose of securing exclusive development rights in Nevada for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, one of the largest privately-owned, family-run coffee and tea companies in the world. Jeffrey has since expanded The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to 15 Las Vegas locations. And, by the end of 2010, Fine Concepts will own and manage a total of 25 concept stores in the Valley.
In 2005, Jeffrey joined forces with his father, Mark, to establish Fine Properties, focusing on retail and office development. Since then, Fine Properties has developed several unique, high-end retail projects in Summerlin and is currently developing the new Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters facility, a nearly 400,000 square foot office development in downtown Las Vegas.
His continued passion for entrepreneurship and business led Jeffrey to establish Silver Nugget Gaming in 2007. He acquired two casinos in downtown North Las Vegas, the Silver Nugget and the Opera House. Silver Nugget Gaming operates these two casinos and its nearly 500 slots and video poker machines, table games, bowling, bingo, dining and live entertainment. Jeffrey also is a partner in the District Tavern Group, which operates three gaming taverns at The District at Green Valley Ranch, including Balboa Pizza Company, Al’s Garage, and Kennedy Tavern.
Jeffrey comes from an extraordinary legacy of influential Nevadans. His grandfather, Hank Greenspun, helped shape Las Vegas’ real estate and communications industry; Jeffrey’s father Mark L. Fine, is one of Southern Nevada’s preeminent real estate developers; and his mother Susan, an eternal philanthropist, is an active member of the Anti-Defamation League and sits on the Greenspun Family Foundation Board.
Jeffrey takes great pride in continuing this legacy through his active involvement in the Las Vegas community. He donates time and resources to many worthy non-profit organizations throughout the city, including Opportunity Village, the United Way of Southern Nevada, the Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada and Best Buddies Nevada. Additionally, Fine has served on the Board of Directors for The Public Education Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas and adopted the Booker Elementary Empowerment School in west Las Vegas in the upcoming 2010-2011 school year.
Jeffrey and his wife, Lieuchi, are the happy parents of two boys, Asher Henry, 2, and Levin Roth, 1. Levin was born with Down syndrome, which has given new meaning to the family’s philanthropic involvement.
Jeffrey received a Bachelor of Science degree in finance and real estate from the University of Arizona, graduated cum laude from Pepperdine University School of Law in 1997 and is a member of the State Bar of California. After law school, Jeffrey worked as a real estate investment banker in New York for Nomura Securities US real estate subsidiary. He is a past member of the Young Presidents Organization and in 2007 was named by In Business Las Vegas as one of the 40 Most Influential People Under 40 in Nevada.
