Capital Square, an investment sponsor specializing in tax-advantaged real estate offerings, has hired Jeffrey Blount as its chief technology officer.
Prior to joining Capital Square, Blount served as virtual chief information officer at Cobb Technologies, where he built a managed service provider from the ground up to offer help desk, security, monitoring and other information technology services to businesses.
“Capital Square has been an early adopter of cutting-edge technologies to reduce costs and minimize risks,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer. “Jeff, who built Capital Square’s technology systems from the ground up at his prior firm, will play an essential role in helping Capital Square expand the roll-out of new technologies.”
Rogers added, “The goal is to use technology to work better, smarter and at reduced cost to the benefit of a growing number of broker-dealers, financial advisors, and investors. Capital Square aims to be the most technologically advanced real estate sponsor in the nation.”
Blount earned a bachelor’s degree from Bluefield College and an associate of science degree in electronics engineering technology from Virginia Western Community College. He is a certified project management professional, through Project Management Institute.
