Gregory Mehdi was the Founder and President of PBS. Sadly, Gregory passed away in a car accident in Los Angeles in July 2014. A native Californian, Gregory grew up in the Los Angeles area and spent his college years in Boston, where he studied at Tufts University. Gregory earned Bachelor of Arts degree at Tufts University in 2007, with a double major in Environmental Science and American Studies. After graduating from Tufts, Gregory returned to Southern California and worked at real estate brokerage and development companies, becoming an expert in analyzing the operating costs and property taxes of commercial properties.

Realizing that most commercial properties pay excessive property taxes and charges that can often be lowered or refunded with careful research and documentation, Gregory formed PBS with a passion to help property owners increase their net revenue by minimizing and recouping those excessive charges.
