Clear Height Properties Names Director to Steer Acquisitions Program

Clear Height Properties has named Ryan Maher its director of acquisitions to execute an aggressive acquisition plan for industrial and office properties in Chicago and across the Midwest.  

As director of acquisitions, Maher’s role will be to identify, assess and evaluate opportunities to acquire properties according to Clear Height’s established acquisition criteria and, in the process, further relationships with the brokerage community. The ultimate goal is to expand the Clear Height portfolio of industrial and office buildings. 

“Buoyed by our existing capital partners, and potential opportunities to add others, our goal is to be aggressive and thoughtful in acquiring over $100 million in properties over the next 12 months,” said Gary Rose, the company’s COO and president. “Adding Ryan Maher to the team will help us position ourselves to explore the opportunities and pursue that goal.”
