Kevin delivers a strong combination of financial analytical skills and operational experience, bringing a unique perspective to asset management at Clear Height Properties. Collaborating closely with Clear Height executive and property management teams, Kevin will oversee assets’ full lifecycle, from identifying opportunities, performing due diligence and leading acquisitions to the execution of each asset’s business plan—conceptualizing and implementing strategies to maximize value for the portfolio.

We believe he’ll make a big impact across the company.” 

Kevin agrees, noting that in addition to a financial impact for the company, but he wants to make a meaningful difference for the businesses who lease Clear Height properties, so they can grow their own operations and achieve their own goals. “Industrial is the backbone of America,” says Kevin. “Being able to draw upon a wide range of ideas and strategies to help these owners succeed—to lift everyone up—is a great benefit.”
