Ohio developer hires new Nashville chief

The development, construction, and sale of our two most recent medical office buildings for Premier Health is an example of how we’re working to bring minority investors into development projects and prioritizing diversity throughout construction.

From the Nashville Business Journal:


An Ohio-based developer has tapped a real estate lawyer to lead and expand its 5-year-old Nashville office.

Al. Neyer LLC, a 125-year-old company headquartered in Cincinnati, has hired Patrick Poole as its new Nashville market chief, the company announced Tuesday. Poole takes charge of an office of about 10 employees working to expand one of Al. Neyer’s regional outposts, which is involved in office, industrial and apartment development.

Since arriving to Nashville in 2015, Al. Neyer has built the 178,000-square-foot Mallory Green office building in Cool Springs and a medical office building in Murfreesboro for Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Al. Neyer also developed a 902,000-square-foot warehouse in Lebanon that Rooms To Go purchased in mid-2019.

The company’s pipeline includes a second building next to that Rooms To Go operation, a Vanderbilt medical office building in Hendersonville, and a pair of warehouses in Antioch.

Poole previously worked seven years for Nashville law firm Ortale Kelley, where he was most recently a partner in the firm’s real estate group.

“As a lifelong Nashvillian, Patrick is deeply rooted in the community,” said Bob Fessler, executive vice president of business development at Al. Neyer. “Patrick is taking on a critical role for us – one that will lead our continued growth in development and design-build construction in Middle Tennessee.”
