Strengthens Development, Advisory Teams
ATLANTA (September 19, 2012) – Carter, one of the nation’s leading investment, development and advisory firms, is pleased to announce the promotion of Patti Neal to senior vice president of development from her previous position as vice president; and Malloy Peterson to senior vice president of advisory, from her previous position as vice president.
A 12-year veteran of the company, Neal has overseen the design and construction for some of the company’s biggest projects, including The Banks in Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbus Commons in Columbus, Ohio; and Piedmont West in Atlanta.
In her new role as senior vice president of development, Neal will serve as the firm’s senior-most construction manager.
“Patti has evolved into one of our leading construction professionals,” says Carter President Scott Taylor. “She has led some of our largest and most complicated public-private, mixed-use developments and is a seasoned construction expert who we’re thrilled to have playing such an important role at Carter.”
Peterson, who joined Carter in 2005, most recently served as vice president of marketing, where she oversaw corporate and project-level marketing and communications teams. Additionally, she has consulted on a number of projects over the last two years. Peterson led Carter’s recent rebranding initiatives, which transformed the company’s identity through changes to its logo, imaging and website.
As senior vice president of the advisory services group, Peterson will oversee Carter’s highest priority consulting and development assignments.
“Malloy has made meaningful contributions at the highest level of our company,” Taylor said. “She has led our marketing efforts, helped land new business and provided valuable support in our advisory area. She brings innovation and creativity to everything we do at Carter.”
Neal has a bachelor’s degree in construction engineering and management from Purdue University and a master’s in business administration from Emory University.
Peterson received her bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Alabama and a master’s degree in business administration from Georgia Tech.
