HC Government Realty Trust Inc., a Regulation A REIT that invests in federally-leased properties, has named Jason Post as its new vice president of finance and corporate controller. In related news, chief financial officer Elizabeth Watson is resigning from the company.
In his new role, Post will be responsible for the REIT’s financial management, including corporate accounting, regulatory and financial reporting, budgeting, as well as internal control policies, particularly as they relate to financial risk management.
“Jason joins us at an inflection point in our corporate evolution, as we seek to enhance our efforts with respect to our SEC-qualified Regulation A+ offering and significantly grow our asset base,” said Edwin Stanton, the REIT’s co-founder, director and CEO.
He added, “Under his direction, Jason’s prior company used the Reg A exemption as it prepared for public status. That experience, along with his substantive expertise as both a financial officer at public companies and principal of his own consultancy providing accounting, SEC financial reporting services, and tax and litigation services should be of immediate benefit to our company.”
Prior to joining HC Government Realty Trust, Post was the principal financial officer of As Seen On TV, Inc., a direct marketing company. Before that he operated Jason D. Post CPA, PA, a consulting firm offering financial and controller services for pre-IPO and listed companies.
He previously served as CFO of Amacore Group, a marketer of health, life and dental insurance plans, and Zurvita, a distributor of health and wellness products. Post began his career in a series of roles of increasing responsibility at accounting firms Deloitte & Touche LLP; Cherry, Bekaert & Holland LLP; Cavanaugh & Company LLP; and Arthur Andersen LLP.
He is a certified public accountant, a certified fraud examiner, and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida.
HC Government Realty Trust was formed in 2016 and oversees a portfolio of 13 properties occupied by federal agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Social Security Administration, and the Department of Transportation. The company is externally managed and advised by Holmwood Capital Advisors LLC and raised $5.9 million in investor equity as of November 2017, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
