Hunt Midwest Ramps Up Shared Construction Services Division to Support Growth
New director level positions announced to enhance development and construction services expertise
Kansas City, Mo.—July 31, 2017—Hunt Midwest President and CEO Ora Reynolds has announced the addition of two new positions within Hunt Midwest’s shared construction services division to support the company’s ongoing business expansion.
“Hunt Midwest created this division to accommodate growth in new geographic regions and real estate sectors, including build-to-suit industrial, multifamily, seniors housing, self-storage and mission critical data center development,” Reynolds said. “We saw a need to streamline and integrate pre-construction and construction management services to support both the commercial and residential divisions at Hunt Midwest. To accomplish that, we have placed two of our own proven staff members with over $800 million in construction experience on this newly created team.”
Chris Reasoner has been named director of construction services and will provide estimating, pre-construction service and construction management for new build-to-suit projects in both SubTropolis and in Hunt Midwest Business Center. In addition, Jeff Redhage has been promoted to director of construction management, serving as project manager for spec construction in Hunt Midwest Business Center, self-storage facilities, data center development and new multifamily developments throughout the region.
“Chris’ leadership over the past five years paved the way for record SubTropolis expansion with an emphasis on automotive and government build-to-suits,” said Hunt Midwest Vice President Mike Bell. “And Jeff’s depth and diversity of experience in the multifamily, industrial and mission critical sectors will support ongoing diversification across the Hunt Midwest development platform.”
Reasoner and Redhage will report to Michael Knight, who joined Hunt Midwest as general manager of shared construction services in 2016 with over 20 years of experience in the construction industry.
“Adding Chris and Jeff to the shared construction services leadership will enable us to support all of Hunt Midwest’s development niches by fully utilizing their expertise and skill sets. The result is a vast amount of industry-leading expertise in one department, where we can create efficiencies and value internally and for our clients by drawing off mutual experiences,” Knight said.
