20/20 Foresight’s Closed Search - May 2019

This month, we’re highlighting a successful 20/20 Foresight search for a prestigious Vice President of Asset Management position with a vertically integrated real estate investment management firm headquartered in Florida.

A real estate leader in the rental housing sector with more than $3 billion in investments, our client was searching for the ideal candidate to oversee its expanding Student Housing division, enacting strategic decisions to maximize cash flow and returns on the company’s collegiate real estate assets.

This integral role, which is responsible for a portfolio of 25,000 beds spanning from Florida to Texas, requires a strong financial background coupled with savvy lender/investor relations expertise. A multidisciplinary position, the VP of Asset Management also demands the interpersonal skills for cross-department collaboration needed to achieve the firm’s short- and long-term goals.

As part of our proven proprietary executive search process and deep real estate industry knowledge, our recruitment team tapped into our global database of more than 100,000+ professionals to cast a nationwide net for candidates with the right blend of real estate and financial experience. At our client’s directive, we narrowed our search to individuals with at least five years’ experience in dedicated student housing asset management.

In a short time, we were able to source a successful professional for this role, facilitating the connection between candidate and client. This individual will now be supporting the firm’s acquisitions team, identifying value creation opportunities, analyzing capital improvement project plans and assisting with property refinancing and recapitalization, along with other initiatives essential to the health and growth of the firm.
