East Bay Company, Ltd. was founded in 1965 by William E. Murray. Mr. Murray was born and raised in Charleston. He pursued a career as a tax attorney in New York and also became a philanthropist who supported many esteemed organizations and was instrumental in helping the Spoleto Festival here in Charleston.

Mr. Murray started investing in real estate in the 1960’s in both New York and Charleston until his demise. He formed East Bay Company, Ltd. upon purchasing several properties on East Bay Street comprised of old warehouses that were renovated into restaurants, office space and apartments by then President, Raymond Geiger. These properties, in addition to others, are presided over today by Mr. Murray’s son-in-law, Hilton Smith, Jr. and his grandson, Hilton Smith, III.

President and CEO, Hilton Smith, Jr., is deeply involved with the Charleston community, having chaired the South Carolina Aquarium for three years and the board for the College of Charleston Foundation for two years, he believes in giving back to his community.  His son, Hilton Smith, III, is the current CFO and served on the Board for the Charleston Animal Society and is currently serving on the Advisory Board for MUSC’s Children’s Hospital in addition to his service with the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston.
