Industry veteran to become part of executive leadership team overseeing Property Management, Asset Management, and Operations divisions

INDIANAPOLIS, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Buckingham Companies, a fully integrated real estate investment firm, managing a portfolio of more than $3 billion in real estate for its own account and institutional partners, today announced the promotion of Kristie Arnst to Executive Vice President.

Arnst is a multifamily veteran with experience in all facets of real estate investment including investor relations, asset management, property management, marketing and sales. She joined Buckingham Companies in September of 2020 and most recently served as senior vice president. In her new role, Arnst will lead the further development of Buckingham's leadership team, the vertical integration of its portfolio, and the company's continued growth alongside its institutional real estate investors and third-party clients.

"Kristie is a proven industry professional who has been an invaluable asset to our organization over the past three-plus years," said Bradley B. Chambers, Buckingham President and Chief Executive Officer. "She is a thoughtful, people-first leader who maintains a pointed focus on the interests of our residents, our associates, and our clients. We're looking forward to continuing to grow our property management division under Kristie's guidance and further establishing Buckingham as a top tier operator of multifamily assets nationwide."

Before joining Buckingham, Arnst served as president of Pepper Pike Capital. She was also president of RESSCO and director of multifamily management at The Hayman Company, with additional career stops at McKinley Inc. and Levalon Properties.

Arnst believes Buckingham represents a refreshing approach to property management at a time when consolidation is consuming the industry.

"Our value is in our real estate, not the margins of our property management company," Arnst said. "We invest in resources for our properties to be well-supported with boots on the ground, which is vastly different from large third-party managers. I have never worked with so many brilliant, driven professionals, who are also perpetual learners. It's inspiring to be surrounded by so many people who share my desire to grow in an environment where everyone, regardless of their position in the company, offers ideas, solutions, and works as a team. We are a real estate investment company, but we are truly in the people business."

Arnst also was recently appointed as the first female member of the Buckingham executive leadership team. In the wake of Arnst's promotion, Justin Few was promoted internally and will oversee Property Management and Buckingham's portfolio of nearly 15,000 multifamily units.

Buckingham Companies has more than 400 employees across nine states. For more information, visit Buckingham.com.
