Partner & COO
Joining IMI in 1995, Ron has been IMI’s Partner in charge of operations for 25 years, providing daily oversight for IMI’s project and sales operations. One of IMI’s most distinguishing competitive advantages is its ability to facilitate seamless transactions from initial conversations to executing contracts to facilitate the close of the transaction.
Ron’s group at IMI not only accomplishes these goals, but they do so with white-glove customer service. In short, the critical component of IMI’s business that Ron manages makes the most cumbersome tasks manageable; and the success is in the numbers: more than $9 billion in closings since IMI’s inception. Ron has coordinated IMI’s project and sales operations for 95 projects located in 20 states and 12 foreign countries.
Ron is a Graduate of the E. Claiborne Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond, Ron spent 12 years at First Union National Bank (now Wells Fargo) before joining IMI. Ron is currently, a licensed real estate broker in South Carolina, a full member in the Urban Land Institute (ULI), and serves on the Recreation Development Gold Council.
