Atlanta-based multifamily owner and developer ECI Group has hired Scott Levitt as Chief Acquisitions Officer in Atlanta. In his new role, Levitt will be responsible for starting and growing a dedicated multifamily acquisition platform for ECI in the Southeastern United States and Texas and for all disposition activity at the company.
Levitt is an apartment investment professional who has completed over $2.3 billion in acquisitions, development, financing, dispositions and joint venture equity investment transactions over the past two decades. Prior to joining ECI, Levitt served as Southeast Partner for Strand Communities, responsible for all investment, asset management and operational activity for the company. Levitt also served as vice president of acquisitions for the Southeast Region at Passco Cos.
“ECI is excited to welcome Scott to lead our acquisitions platform,” said James Baugnon president at ECI Capital. “His extensive background in multifamily investing and transactional track record position ECI to grow more aggressively through acquisition activity in the Southeastern United States and Texas. Our goal is to acquire and renovate 1,500 units of market rate multifamily units annually, including garden, mid-rise and high-rise, dependent on market demand. With ECI’s fully vertically integrated structure as a developer, builder and manager, we have the capacity and resources to execute this plan.”
