There’s a new name atop McWhinney.
The real estate firm, which has offices in Denver and Loveland, said Monday that Ray Pittman has been named CEO. His previous title was president and chief operating officer.
Pittman replaces Chad McWhinney, who co-founded the firm in 1991 with his brother Troy. He will become the company’s executive chairman.
Troy McWhinney, meanwhile, remains the company’s chief investment officer.
Pittman joined McWhinney in 2019 after previously serving as global chief client officer for CBRE, according to McWhinney.
The company says it has planned and developed over 6,000 acres and over 10 million square feet since its inception, including 3,000 apartments. Locally, in the past six months, McWhinney has acquired a mall in Fort Collins, broken ground on a 17-story apartment building in RiNo and purchased a 180-room hotel by Union Station.
