Middleburg Communities welcomes Heath Flowers as Chief Technology Officer, with overall responsibility for technology operations and strategies for the company. His primary responsibilities include planning, implementing, managing, and constant improvement across the technology operations of the company.
“Middleburg has long embraced a tech-forward approach to the real estate investment business and we are excited to have a seasoned technology leader join us to architect more robust integrated solutions to improve our operating performance and efficiency,” said firm Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer, Chris Finlay. “As a fully integrated real estate company, investing across multiple regions of the country, leading technology solutions are critical to advancing and managing the growth of our business strategies.”
Prior to joining Middleburg, Heath led technology efforts for American Natural, a community-centered convenience firm. American Natural focuses on bringing better everyday eating and fueling to the communities it serves. In this role, Heath focused on successful integration of technology and the business, directing investment in, and adoption of, systems and infrastructure that benefited both business operations and the customer experience. These efforts spanned across the real-property lifecycle—from site selection, through development and construction, and into day-to-day operations. Beyond his technology role, Heath was instrumental in the early-stage formation, strategy, and execution at American Natural, working from day one alongside the founder & CEO.
Earlier in his career, Flowers focused on other real asset development opportunities, working both as an in-house landman and in various technology roles for publicly traded energy development businesses including Brigham Exploration Company, Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy, and Marathon Oil Company.
Flowers earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and a BBA from The University of Oklahoma, where he earned degrees in both Management Information Systems and Energy Management.
