Chicago — CA Ventures has appointed Peter Isaac executive vice president of public-private partnerships.
In his new role based out of the company’s Chicago headquarters, Isaac will help source and execute P3s with leading academic institutions across the U.S., supporting them with CA’s extensive experience in the acquisition, development and management of on- and near-campus real estate developments.
“For years, Peter has been one of the go-to advisers in the P3 space, having consulted more than 70 universities throughout his career, so when we were looking to grow this portion of our business, we knew his longstanding relationships within the higher-education sector would supplement our own expertise,” says Tom Scott, CEO of CA Ventures. “We are thrilled to welcome him to our growing leadership team as we enter new markets and expand in existing ones – increasingly through partnerships with academic decision-makers who share our vision of building community by supporting the people who live there.”
In addition to helping universities execute and operate on-campus student housing developments, Isaac and the CA Ventures team will leverage their experience across other disciplines — including hospitality, multifamily housing, retail and office — to complete mixed-use, campus-edge projects that bridge with surrounding communities. CA’s P3 work will also encompass state-of-the-art academic buildings, high-tech research labs, and public sports and entertainment venues.
