Serving clients since 1908, Braun International was founded by Isidor Braun in Cleveland, Ohio in 1908. The family-run business started publishing educational books, focused on translation, to be used by the newly immigrated citizens of the United States. Isidor had nine children, a few of them worked in sales and distribution as teenagers, helping their father grow the business, others became lawyers and State and Federal Court Judges. Two of Isidor’s children continued in the family business until the 1960’s. One of Isidor’s children, Jessie Braun, married Myron Wohl. Myron then joined the business after his completion of law school; his law degree and business experience moved Braun International into real estate acquisitions and related real estate industry services. Myron and Jessie’s son, Donald Braun Wohl, joined the company with expansion into Capital and Investment markets throughout the United States during the 1970’s to the late 1990’s. Isidor’s great-grandson, Todd Braun Wohl, joined Braun International in the 1990’s after a career serving Fortune 1000 companies, Federal and State courts by providing asset valuation, brokerage and auction expertise. Todd’s expertise provided a tremendous value to the existing and new clients the company served. The expansion of the Braun International’s services has created a near vertical platform of services.
