Gancas family gives back to Cornell, together | Giving to Cornell

Posted on
Cornell matters every day to Robyn Gancas ’08 and her brother Jonathan Gancas ’14—you can see it in the office they share at 221 Properties, the real estate company they founded in Austin, Texas.

“Above my desk I have my Cornell degree, and above his desk he has his Cornell degree,” Robyn said.

Both siblings received their degrees from the School of Hotel Administration, now part of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. Robyn used her hospitality education in food and beverage, in hotel work, and in finance before joining Jonathan in his single-minded pursuit: real estate.

“The Hotel School was a really great program, [especially] the combination of real-life integration plus the business background,” Robyn said. “It served both of us really well past graduation.”
