Aaron Halfacre has been hired by Campus Crest Communities, the developer and builder of student housing properties, to serve as executive vice president and head of capital markets.
Halfacre comes from Cole Real Estate Investments, a publicly traded net lease real estate investment trust. At that company, he was head of strategic relations working closely with the company’s leadership and acted as the primary representative for institutional investors.
Prior to Cole, he held senior leadership roles at BlackRock, the world’s largest investment manager.
“Aaron joins us as an executive officer and the head of our capital markets, but more importantly Aaron joins us as an agent for change,” said Ted Rollins, Campus Crest’s chief executive officer. “He has spent his entire sixteen year career in real estate, the REIT community and the buy-side looking at business decisions through the lens if an investor.”
