The OnPoint Team
Due to OnPoint’s sense of urgency, attention to detail, and proven success, our team has accumulated an assemblage of industry-leading professionals into our rolodex.
Todd Dwyer PE, PLS – President & Founder
From the time Todd Dwyer was seven years old, he would spend his summers surveying development sites with his father in Missouri. Todd spent the next few decades of his life internalizing invaluable industry knowledge, research, and experience in surveying and engineering. Todd later continued his path at the University of Missouri at Columbia where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a minor in mathematics, ultimately becoming a licensed professional engineer and licensed professional surveyor. His time spent in the engineering world allowed Todd the unique ability to work in CAD engineering software—a skill he takes advantage of to this day in order to find the most efficient, cost-effective, and attractive way to maximize space on behalf of his tenants. (He’s been known to spend hours configuring development projects 20+ ways in order to ensure he’s using a site’s space in the most strategic manner possible). Todd leads the OnPoint team and team selection process for every project. Working with national retail and restaurant chains, shopping centers, and one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, Todd has entitled/developed over 5,000 units and parcels of land—both residential and commercial. As an acquisition director for real estate development firms, Todd has successfully planned and designed commercial sites, residential subdivisions, industrial and municipal utility projects, and roadway designs.
Mike Gerber, MBA - Acquisitions Director, Industrial
Raised in South Africa and London, Mike Gerber brings an international perspective to all of his development endeavors. He attended boarding School in Switzerland and the UK before moving to New York for college where he graduated from Long Island University in 2009 with an MBA in International Business & Administration. Mike began his career at a private equity firm based in La Jolla, CA before transitioning toward real estate development in the Hamptons, NY. After coordinating several development projects, Mike's interests led him back to San Diego to pursue commercial real estate development, where he is currently building out the industrial space with OnPoint.
Demir Asik, MBA - Acquisitions Director, Retail
Raised in Istanbul, Turkey, Demir obtained his first bachelor’s degree from Istanbul Bilgi University in International Relations and his second in Political Science from the University of Portsmouth, England. Moving to San Diego in 2001 with an athletic scholarship in water polo, he finished the UC San Diego extension program in Marketing, and received his MBA thereafter, all while interning at Merrill Lynch. He continued with Merrill Lynch after graduation, working in the finance division. Demir then left the finance world to pursue his passion in construction, working in both the residential and commercial fields, managing numerous award-winning projects. He has joined the OnPoint team to parley his finance and construction experience towards commercial real estate development.
