Donald Pearson, owner and Chairman of Kurfiss Sotheby's International Realty, is an international businessman and entrepreneur. A 1965 graduate of Brown University, he earned the Samuel T. Arnold Fellowship Award. With the sponsorship of Thomas Watson, then-chairman of IBM, Pearson traveled to and studied in Central America for one year. 

In 1968, he earned his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and spent the next four years with the State Department (USAID) in Brazil working on capital-market development. 

In 1971, Pearson married a Brazilian. They have two children. He is fluent in Portuguese. From 1971 to 1976 he worked as executive vice president of a Brazilian financial conglomerate, Nacional Brasiliero, in Rio de Janeiro. 

In 1976, he joined and served as chairman of Midland Montague Ltda. do Brasil, and Midland Bank of London's Brazil operations, during which time the bank held the third largest foreign bank presence in Brazil. He also represented the merchant bank, Samuel Montague of London, was president of the local investment bank, Midland Bamerindus, and led a joint-venture leasing company involving Midland Bamerindus Bank and General Motors. 

In 1991, Pearson purchased Kurfiss Real Estate, and in 2006 the company became the exclusive affiliate for Sotheby's International Realty, covering Bucks County, Philadelphia and the Main Line as well as serving clients throughout the five counties of southeastern Pennsylvania. In that time the company has participated in excess of 7800 transactions. In 1993, he formed International Venture Partners, a venture capital partnership in Brazil, which was subsequently transformed into TWW Wireless, located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Pearson continues to serve on the board of directors of this text messaging corporation.
