Philip Corning Iglehart, a devoted family man and sportsman who made a profound impact in commercial real state, died Sept. 5 of cancer at his home in Glyndon. He was 81.
The son of Philip L.B. Iglehart, an investor, farm owner and polo enthusiast, and Mary Corning Iglehart, a homemaker, Mr. Iglehart was raised in Westbury, New York, along with two siblings and graduated from St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire.
His five-decade professional career in commercial real estate began in 1958 at W.C. Pinkard & Co. (now Cassidy Turley), where he started as a junior salesman and became the firm’s president 16 years later.
In 1982, he joined the RREEF Funds, then considered one of the country’s leading real estate investment trusts, serving as principal in opening an office in New York City.
