Craig began working for the company eight years ago in the Asset Management department with the focus of his work in underwriting and refinancing current loans. He then transitioned to working in Construction where he made site visits, worked with the architect and general contractors of rehab projects, and provided assistance reviewing draws, drawings, and resident relocation plans. About four years ago, Craig transferred to Development and began helping complete tasks and applications on deals they’ve got in process. Since his promotion to Vice President, Craig now gets to develop his own deals which means working directly with our lenders, equity partners, local and state governments, and the property’s sellers among others, to put together a project for LHP to purchase and begin rehabbing. Craig’s supervisor immediately points out how beneficial it was that he had background knowledge in other departments at LHP prior to coming to Development. This allowed him to “hit the ground running” when he first began reviewing potential deals as he was quickly able to determine which projects were prospects along with easily weeding out those that would not work. With “literally hundreds of potential deals in his quiver of knowledge”, Craig’s supervisor notes that he will have a “long and successful future ahead of him” in closing deals that make sound long term investments for the company. Outside of work, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife and their young daughter.
