Alberta Development Partners recently announced that real estate veteran Craig Poulter has joined the company as president and chief financial officer.
In his new role, Poulter will be responsible for maintaining Alberta’s relationships with its debt and equity partners, as well as overseeing the operations and financial structure of the real estate development company’s transactions and working with the company’s founding principal Don Provost to continue to grow and diversify the company’s business.
“Alberta is a growing firm that is taking on greater challenges,” Provost said. “Our deals today have much more complex financial structures, and Craig brings a wealth of experience to the table.”
Over the last three decades, Poulter has held a variety of executive positions at several Denver area banks. At various times over the course of his career, he has been responsible for originating more than $1 billion annually in financing commitments. He’s been responsible for all aspects of marketing, negotiating, underwriting and financial reporting.
Two years ago, Poulter left the banking industry for the nonprofit world, serving as director of development and strategic partnerships for Neighborhoods Without Poverty, which focuses on eliminating poverty in nine neighborhoods in northeast Denver.
“That was really the right thing for me at the time,” Poulter said. “But I miss the people, the deals, the action and the energy. This is an opportunity that is too exciting to pass up.”
