Cerberus was aptly named for the dog that guards the gates of Hades (Hell). It was founded by Trump mega-donor Steve Feinberg, CEO, and William Richter, Sr. Managing Director, in 1992. Bush Sr. VP Dan Quayle is Chairman of Global Investments. Cerberus feeds at the taxpayer trough of housing subsidies for the poor and military contracts.

The Memphis Housing Authority has paid Cerberus owned entities over $5.3 million for low income rental subsidies during the last two years. Additionally, Cerberus owned properties had high rates of code violations.
