In his role as chief financial officer since 2016, Powers’ financial leadership has been instrumental in driving exponential growth of CRG’s operating company, as well as the development of its real estate investment portfolio to include over 3,300 units valued at more than $775 million.
“I am gratified that Dave has accepted the new responsibility of leading our firm at a time of significant growth and a record year of expansion,” Reid said. “He understands our business and is committed to advancing new strategies as we seek to further develop and expand our portfolio in communities throughout the region and eastern United States.”
Powers’ duties as president include oversight of CRG’s financial operations/strategy, real estate development operations, asset management and capital markets activities.
Powers assumes the leadership role as CRG celebrates its 30th anniversary in business and as it prepares for a 16,000-square-foot headquarters expansion to accommodate additional office space, a warehouse, and a training facility.
Prior to joining CRG, Powers worked for more than 11 years for some of the leading homebuilders in the U.S. He received his M.B.A. from Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and a bachelor’s degree from Miami University.
