With McKenney’s induction, the company’s board is still comprised of three directors, with two recognized as independent members of the board.

Previously, McKenney was the president of capital markets for Apple REIT Ten Inc. until it merged with Apple Hospitality REIT Inc. in September 2016. McKenney formerly served as president of capital markets for Apple REIT Six Inc. until the company merged with an affiliate of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VII in May 2013. He also served in the same capacity for Apple Hospitality Five Inc. and Apple Hospitality Two Inc.

From 1994 to 2001, McKenney was the senior vice president and treasurer of Cornerstone Realty Income Trust Inc., a REIT that owned and operated apartment communities in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. From 1992 to 1994, McKenney operated as chief financial officer for The Henry A. Long Company, a regional development firm located in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, McKenney served as a controller at Bozzuto & Associates, a regional developer of apartments and condominiums in the Washington, D.C. area.

“Capital Square Apartment REIT is pursuing a winning strategy by targeting quality housing options located in high-growth markets throughout the Southeast and Texas,” said McKenney. “This is a strategy I’m very familiar with and have helped successfully pursue for several other real estate investment trusts throughout my career. I look forward to helping deliver the same success to the stockholders of Capital Square Apartment REIT.”
