Shopoff Realty Investments, a manager of opportunistic and value-add real estate investments, has promoted James O’Malley to the role of senior vice president of forward planning to lead the development team under executive vice president of real estate, Brian Rupp.
O’Malley, who has more than 38 years of experience in the real estate industry, joined Shopoff in April 2016, acting as the firm’s vice president of development. In his new role, O’Malley will lead the development team throughout a project’s development cycle, from land acquisition, due diligence and the entitlement process, to ultimately managing the sale of assets.
Prior to his role with Shopoff, he held the position of vice president, land acquisitions, for Meritage Homes of Southern California.
“Over the past five years, James has become an integral part of the development team and has proven a true champion for Shopoff’s development projects,” said William Shopoff, president and chief executive officer. “Spearheading many of our noteworthy projects, such as the Magnolia Tank Farm mixed-use development in Huntington Beach, and the Anaheim South Street townhome development, James’ efforts and expertise have been a vital component to moving many Shopoff projects across the finish line.”
James is a member of the Orange County Building Industry Association Board and the Huntington Beach Wetland Conservancy Board, as well as other industry affiliated groups.
