Rise Partners announces the addition of Sam Berry as a senior development manager. Mr. Berry interned with Rise in the summer of 2020, before his final year of graduate school to receive a master’s degree in real estate with a concentration in development from Cornell University.
Berry graduated from McCallie School and from there attended Auburn University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in building construction. He began his career in construction management, working for general contractors and from there, decided to pursue a master’s to transition over to the investment and development side of real estate.
“I am ecstatic to be joining a company that is comprised of true professionals, who are not only experts in their field, but carry a well-regarded reputation amongst their peers and in the communities in which they invest and build,” said Mr.
Berry. “I feel fortunate to be joining the Rise Partners team, especially during a time of substantial growth and diversification, and I am excited for where we are headed.”
In his role at Rise Partners, Mr. Berry will focus on developing industrial, retail and build-to-rent residential communities. Initially, he will oversee some of the ongoing Rise development projects across multiple sectors.
“We are excited to have Sam Berry on the Rise team,” said Matt Phillips, partner at Rise. “Sam is a rising star with a bright future. His versatile skills position him to play a key role in Rise’s growth trajectory.”
