MCB, a leading force in commercial real estate development and institutional real estate investment management today announced the appointment of Gina Baker Chambers as President, marking a significant milestone in the company’s journey of continued growth and innovation. Gina’s rich experience and proven track record make her a formidable addition to MCB, bringing a wealth of strategic, operational, and leadership capabilities.

“I am honored to assume the role of President at MCB and lead the organization through this exciting phase of expansion. Together, we will harness the power of strategic investments to not only generate impressive returns for our investors but also to catalyze positive change in the communities we serve,” said Gina Baker Chambers.

Joining MCB from Artemis Real Estate Partners, where she played a pivotal role in the organization’s growth since its founding in 2009, Gina’s diverse roles encompassed acquisitions, asset management, capital raising, investor relations, and portfolio management. Her extensive institutional relationships and proven track record in growing separate accounts position her as a force to be reckoned with in driving successful investments.  Her instrumental role in establishing and expanding the Artemis Emerging Manager Platform serves as a testament to her capabilities.  At Artemis, Gina successfully secured approximately $2.5 billion in institutional capital, forging impactful partnerships and joint ventures for real estate acquisitions across the United States. MCB was selected as one of Artemis’ Diverse and Emerging Operating Partners, where Gina cultivated a trusting partnership with MCB co-founders P. David Bramble and Peter Pinkard. The partnership between MCB and Artemis successfully executed transactions exceeding $500 million across diverse real estate sectors, including retail, industrial, and office assets.

“Partnering with Gina for 8 years, we were challenged and pushed in the very best ways,” says Bramble. “She is a game changer with the vision, relationships, and passion to scale MCB to our full potential. Now, as President of MCB, Chambers is poised to infuse the organization with her entrepreneurial vigor.”

Leveraging her experience as an investor, nurturing industry relationships, and formulating strategic growth plans, she aims to steer MCB towards new heights of success. Bramble and Pinkard remain steadfast in their commitment to actively raise capital and make impactful investments at MCB, while Gina fortifies the strategic and operational capabilities of the organization.

Gina’s appointment reflects MCB’s commitment to maintaining its position as a leader in the national institutional investment space. The company’s remarkable growth from $1 billion in Assets Under Management in 2019 to a substantial $3 billion today underscores its strength and resilience. With a national presence and a robust financial position, MCB is uniquely poised for continued expansion and success under Gina’s adept leadership.
