What's Happening



IRVING, Texas (July 18, 2019) –JPI has grown to become the largest multifamily developer in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex for the last four years running, and ranked the eighth largest multifamily developer and the 9th largest multifamily general contractor in the U.S., per National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2019 TOP 50 Rankings.

As a result of this growth, and as part of the company’s long range planning, JPI is expanding and adjusting its senior leadership team structure to focus on optimizing the current and future market opportunities, as well as positioning JPI for future generations. These changes will be supportive and instrumental in achieving the company’s commitment to its Mission & Creed.  Within that “Creed”, adopted and contemplated almost 30 years ago, the first line reads, “It is our purpose to build a company that will endure for our friends and associates, that will command the respect of our peers, and that will quicken the pride of succeeding generations.”

As JPI enters the next phase of its organization planning, JPI will establish a Board of Directors consisting of Bobby Page, Ron Ingram, Mark Bryant and Kirk Motsenbocker, who have previously served as the company’s Executive Committee. The Board of Directors will provide advisory support including consulting with the company’s senior leadership team regarding strategic and operational direction and planning of the company, oversight monitoring of the company’s performance, and will provide general corporate governance.

As part of this restructure, Brad Taylor, formerly JPI’s Chief Development Officer and National Managing Partner, has been named JPI’s Chief Executive Officer effective July 1, 2019. In his new role, Brad will lead the company’s day-to-day operations.

“The future is incredibly bright for JPI,” said Brad Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of JPI. “I consider it an honor to lead this organization of talented individuals and believe that our people and their unwavering commitment to excellence will fuel the success of JPI for years to come.”

Reporting directly to Brad, will be the core senior leadership team consisting of Rosie Cooper, Executive Vice President, Managing Partner – Western Region, Dusty Broadway, Senior Vice President National Construction Partner as well as a new member of the JPI leadership team, Chris Clayton, who has been named JPI’s Chief Financial Officer.

Chris will lead all of JPI’s capital markets efforts, focusing heavily on platform capital, as well as leading the company’s financial, accounting, operations and administration support services teams. Clayton brings nearly 30 years of investment, finance, and executive experience to the Dallas-based leadership team. He comes to JPI from Forest City Realty Trust where he most recently served as the company’s Executive Vice President, Treasurer, managing a multimillion dollar operating budget and serving on the Investment and Executive Committees.

With comprehensive experience in real estate capital markets and a strong track record of identifying, analyzing, and closing growth-fueling transactions, Clayton will be an invaluable contributor to the company’s successes and growth moving forward.

“I am elated to join the JPI family and to start the next chapter of my career,” said Chris Clayton, Chief Financial Officer at JPI. “I am looking forward to immersing myself in the organization to best prepare it for the future.”

With this new leadership structure, JPI is well positioned to achieve its Goal: “To be recognized by our Associates, Residents and Investors as the #1 residential company in the markets we serve.”
