Waypoint Homes, Inc. Promotes Managing Director Gary Beasley to Chief Executive Officer

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2013

The Board of Directors of Waypoint Homes, Inc., a pioneer in the REO to rental industry, announced today that Gary Beasley has been named President and Chief Executive Officer. Beasley will be supported by Chief Operating Officer Scott Gable, Chief Technology Officer Ali Nazar, recently appointed Chief Financial Officer Nina Tran, and by Doug Brien and Colin Wiel in their roles as co-founders and managing directors.

Beasley joined Waypoint as a managing director in late 2011 and played a key role in securing the companys partnership with Menlo Park-based private equity firm GI Partners, which represented the first large institutional investment into the single family rental (SFR) industry, as well as the milestone $ 245 million revolving credit facility with Citi that Waypoint announced in October 2012.

Garys track record of building high growth companies combined with his investment and public company leadership experience makes him the natural choice to lead Waypoint as we continue expanding, said Doug Brien. Colin Wiel added, Our assets under management more than doubled in 2012 and we expect continued growth in 2013. Weve been operating effectively under a rather unconventional structure with three managing directors running the firm. We understand that as we mature we need to adopt a more conventional structure, and were confident that this streamlined organizational structure is the right one to support that significant growth trajectory.

Its been incredibly satisfying to see our investment strategy validated through the emergence of the single family rental market as an institutional asset class over the past year, said Beasley. Doug and Colin have done an amazing job building Waypoint from the ground up. Im honored and excited to lead Waypoint into its next chapter, and my goal is to build on our legacy of innovation in our space and to ensure Waypoint remains at the forefront of our industry for many years to come.

Before joining Waypoint, Beasley served as a partner with Geolo Capital, the private equity arm of the John A. Pritzker family, where he helped orchestrate the firms investment into Joie de Vivre Hospitality, the second largest boutique hotel chain in the U.S. He served as the chains CEO for a year prior to its successful merger with NY-based Thompson Hotels. Prior to joining Geolo, Beasley served as CFO and then president of the pioneering Internet-based residential brokerage ZipRealty (NASDAQ: ZIPR), which now ranks as one of the largest residential brokers in the U.S. Under Beasleys leadership ZipRealty grew from 40 to over 2,000 employees and executed a successful IPO. In addition to his previous CEO role at solar technology start-up Greenvolts, other past positions include key roles at KSL Resorts (a $ 2 billion KKR-backed resort/leisure enterprise), Security Capital Group (REIT pioneer), and LaSalle Partners Limited (predecessor company to Jones Lang LaSalle).

We are proud to be on the leading edge of helping to create a new institutional asset class through our partnership with Waypoint, said Rick Magnuson, board member of Waypoint Homes and executive managing director of GI Partners. Gary has brought great experience and strategic thinking to Waypoint. With Gary, Colin, Doug and the entire Waypoint teams support, we have purchased over 2,000 homes since early 2012.

Bob Greer, Warren Burke, King-Garvey Win Big At The 2012 MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE Awards

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 02, 2012

MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE, the leading media brand in the multifamily housing industry, unveiled the winners of its annual MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE Awards at a special awards ceremony last month in Las Vegas.

Longtime industry veteran Robert (Bob) Greer, president of Marlton, N.J.based Michaels Development Company, was named the 2012 Executive of the Year. Greer was one of two individuals honored among more than 30 awards presented at the event, which recognizes exceptional people, projects, and programs across 19 categories.

Greer was honored for a lifetime of achievement in the multifamily industry, most notably for his work in the affordable housing arena. He was a key force in building Michaels Development Company into the nations largest multifamily owner. But above and beyond that, Greer has developed more than 70 communities through the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) program and has collaborated with housing authorities in the revitalization of more than 20 public housing communities, including in Philadelphia, New Jersey, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Fittingly, he was inducted into MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE sister publication AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINANCEs Affordable Housing Hall of Fame in 2010.

Bob Greer is one of the giants of the affordable housing industry, a living legend, and yet at the core of his long list of achievements is a selflessness and humility that is truly inspiring, said Jerry Ascierto, editor-in-chief of MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE. This award is not just a recognition of all hes done in his 40-year career, but for all he continues to do as an advocate on Capitol Hill for the LIHTC industry.

Additionally, Warren Burke, vice president of development for Philadelphia-based Campus Apartments, was named MFEs third-annual Rising Star of the Year, an award bestowed on an industry up-and-comer. Although already a 20-year veteran of the apartment sector, in just his fifth year with Campus Apartments, Burke has already helped steer the company to the top of the student housing world, leading the charge this year with more than $ 125 million in development volume.????

The editors of MULTIFAMILY EXECUTIVE magazine also unveiled the sixth-annual Editors Choice Award, which recognizes a project that is best in show. That honor this year went to the Martin Luther King-Marcus Garvey Square Cooperative Apartments, a 211-unit, rehabilitated housing cooperative in San Francisco, developed by Related California. The Sec. 8 project also won a Grand Award for Apartment Renovation.

Other multiple winners were the Charlotte (N.C.) Housing Authority, KTGY Group, and Prometheus Real Estate Group.

This years winners were chosen by a group composed of the magazines editors and five industry judges: Rohit Anand, principal and head of East Coast operations, KTGY Group, in Vienna, Va.; Jim Butz, president and CEO, Jefferson Apartment Group, in McLean, Va.; Eileen Lee, vice president of energy and environmental policy at the National Multi Housing Council, in Washington, D.C.; Julie Smith, president of Bozzuto Management Co., in Greenbelt, Md.; and Christina Steeg, senior vice president of marketing and training at Simpson Property Group, in Denver.

Our judges had an extremely difficult task this year. The quantity of nominations receivedand there were more than 200 of themreflect an industry thats firing on all cylinders again, Ascierto said. But the quality of submissions made this an even more difficult process and proves that this industry is about so much more than bricks and sticksits about passion and vision.
