Founder & Chief Executive Officer


As Founder and CEO, Chad is responsible for shaping Catalyst’s mission, vision, and values as well as fostering and growing the organization’s deep-rooted culture. Under Chad’s leadership, Catalyst has grown from a boutique real estate development company focused on the Southeast to a national platform with multiple offices and investments in over 20-states. Chad actively guided Catalyst in its latest iteration of funding resulting in a $1.5 billion joint venture partnership with Washington D.C.-based, National Real Estate Advisors, LLC. The newly formed venture is actively investing in real estate through developments and acquisitions nationwide.


Before launching Catalyst, Chad founded THG Investments, a private investment firm focused on launching and investing in multiple opportunities involving healthcare delivery change, most notably - Intelligent Retinal Imaging Systems (IRIS). Chad is an active member of the Southern 7 chapter of the Young President’s Organization as well as a recent finalist for the Healthcare Real Estate Insight’s (HREI) Healthcare Real Estate Executive of the Year. Chad is also the visionary and primary investor/developer behind the “East Garden District,” a placemaking project in historic downtown Pensacola, FL. Finally, Chad is a member of the Southern 7 Chapter of the Young Presidents Organization, a Foundation Board and Investment Committee member for the University of West Florida, a chairman of the board for the Studer Community Institute, and recently a board member and partner of Andrews Medicine.
