NAHB POWER HITTERS Host Michael Thomas talks with David Ward, executive vice president of development of the publicly traded REIT, MAA—the nation’s largest private apartment owner with over 100,000 units. MAA is also the seventh largest apartment manager with operations of over $20B. Headquartered in Germantown, Tennessee, the company runs properties in 30 markets with a focus on gateway cities throughout the Sun Belt.
Ward joined MAA through the merger with Post Properties and was able to bring a development platform with him that further elevated MAA’s production capacity.
Ward talks about future investment, C-19 strategies and future-proofing the apartment business for greater resilience.
