Developer Seeks New Chief for Nashville Office

Al. Neyer is actively seeking a new market leader in its Nashville office at Mallory Green as it continues to make its mark on Music City.

From the Nashville Business Journal:


An Ohio-based developer that arrived in Nashville almost five years ago is hunting for a new leader for that operation.

Rob Gage no longer leads the regional office of Al. Neyer LLC, which is headquartered in Cincinnati. Gage was the company’s first local hire and oversaw several developments, such as the five-story Mallory Green office building in Cool Springs and a 900,000-square-foot distribution building in Wilson County that Rooms To Go has since purchased.

Bob Fessler, an executive at company headquarters, said he expects to hire a new Nashville market leader within a month. The region is one of three outposts for the 125-year-old company — among the horde of newcomers angling to snag its share of Nashville’s surging economy, rising profile and continually growing population.

“Our commitment to Nashville is for keeps. It’s very strategic to the success of our company,” Fessler said. “Filling this vacancy is a top priority.”

Al. Neyer focuses on office and industrial development, and also builds apartment complexes on behalf of other investors who own the property and the ensuing buildings.

Fessler said he sees opportunities in all three sectors in Greater Nashville. There’s room for another office building at the Mallory Green site in Cool Springs, and adjacent to the Rooms To Go facility, Fessler said Al. Neyer is ready to build a 600,000-square-foot industrial building. The company also has a deal to join in a mixed-use development proposed on Eighth Avenue South, just outside downtown Nashville.

There are 10 people working at the local office today, located in Cool Springs. Fessler said he’s looking for someone who’s familiar with the area and well-connected, with some development experience.

“We think our edge is that we do hire local,” Fessler said. “We think that’s our edge in the long run.”
