Chicago — CRG, the real estate development and investment arm of Chicago-based Clayco, has hired Struan Robertson as vice president of investments. In his new position, Robertson will lead financing and underwriting for CRG’s national multifamily and student housing projects alongside managing partner, J.J. Smith. Robertson’s responsibilities will include procuring capital partners, overseeing investment underwriting, deal due diligence, and transactions and asset management.
“Struan is as savvy as they come on the investment front and an absolute workhorse,” says Smith. “He’s capable of sourcing and managing multiple deals with a unique ability to float between the micro-analytics of an individual deal while never losing site of the big picture. We intend to build CRG’s residential business into a household name by recruiting and developing the industry’s top talent to source and execute an enviable pipeline of assets.”
