The ConAm Group, (ConAm) a San Diego-based real estate investment, development and services firm, has announced that industry veteran Rob Singh has been appointed as CEO in addition to his role as President, coinciding with the firm’s ongoing growth in the industry.
“This new position is a natural progression for Rob, who has been integral in ConAm’s growth and success,” says Dan Epstein, Chairman and Founder of ConAm. “In the past three years, ConAm has transitioned to a new investment model, raising approximately $300 million in capital for our discretionary funds and development projects, and significantly expanding our property management arm. Each of these accomplishments was achieved under Rob’s guidance and direction, therefore making it appropriate to include the CEO responsibilities to his prior role.”
Singh has served as ConAm’s Co-President and CIO for three years, alongside Bob Svatos, who will continue to serve as the firm’s President and COO.

We are looking to build on our discretionary fund models success, and we anticipate steady growth for our firm in the years ahead.”
