ST. LOUIS, Thursday, February 7, 2019 – Gardner Capital, a St. Louis and Dallas-based private equity firm specializing in multifamily housing and renewable energy development and investment, announced on Monday the promotion of Corey Grab to a new leadership position as Vice President of Construction Management. As the leader of the Construction and Risk Management group, Corey will consolidate all construction management and risk management related activities and personnel across Gardner Capital’s national footprint and work directly with the Chief Operating Officer of the Multifamily Housing and Affordable Housing group and report regularly to the Board of Directors for Gardner Capital.
“With more than 20 active new construction projects across more than 15 states, and increased development volume in our core markets, we have decided to consolidate our National Construction and Risk Management activities under the leadership of Corey Grab. Corey has significantly increased the capacity and efficiency of the Construction and Risk Management group and the time is right to consolidate our national operations under his leadership,” said Michael Gardner, CEO of Gardner Capital, adding “simply stated, without Corey’s leadership, there would be deals that just wouldn’t get done.” Gardner Capital has significantly expanded its multifamily development and investment operations in key markets in Texas, Florida and the southeast United States and will expand its Construction and Risk Management group to meet those expanding needs.
Between investment and development in multifamily housing, Corey and his team will be actively engaged in management and oversight of more than 30 multifamily housing developments on an annualized basis.
“Corey has been instrumental at improving our processes and procedures and building the Construction Management Team to handle the substantial increase in development that we have seen over the past few years. He will continue to grow the group to meet our evolving needs for years to come-bringing us to the institutional level of execution that our partners expect,” said Marty Moore, CFO of Gardner Capital.
Although Gardner Capital has primary offices in St. Louis, Missouri and Dallas, Texas, Corey and his team operate nationally and focus on targeted growth for the National Group – “focusing on delivering additional capacity in core markets like Texas, Florida, Atlanta and North Carolina,” said Corey Grab, adding that “[he] welcomes the additional responsibility…we have accomplished a lot in a short period of time, but there is still a lot more to do, and I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to build out our National Team.”
