​CHICAGO – Ridge Development, the industrial development arm of Transwestern Development Co., today announces Kevin Mohoney has joined the firm as vice president. Based in Chicago, Mohoney will be responsible for sourcing new development and value-add acquisition opportunities, preparing underwriting materials, engaging joint venture partners and lenders on potential equity and debt participation, overseeing new development lease-up and managing disposition efforts upon stabilization.

“We’re very excited to welcome Kevin to our team,” said Aaron Martell, market leader for Ridge Development’s Midwest region. “His entrepreneurial spirit and analytical skillset will be exceedingly valuable as Ridge continues to expand throughout the Midwest.”

Mohoney recently completed his MBA with a focus in real estate from the University of Wisconsin Graaskamp Center for Real Estate.
