- Why did you choose to come work for Capital Growth Buchalter?
I chose to come work for Capital Growth Buchalter because Capital Growth Buchalter gave me an opportunity out of college to join their team. Along with that amazing opportunity came the trust and ability to grow within the company, and it’s been a blessing and awesome career ever since. I was finishing up at the University of Alabama in 2011 when the April 27 tornado hit Tuscaloosa, which unexpectedly was the end of college days for me. Classes and finals were canceled, and graduation was postponed a few months, and I honestly had no idea what to do at that time. I spent time back and forth between Tuscaloosa and home (Birmingham) directly after that. A good childhood family friend who was working at Capital Growth Buchalter set up an interview for me. I met the CGB team, and they offered me the opportunity to come work for them and they have been great to me ever since.

A typical day at CGB is managing my team and reviewing feasible sites for Dollar General development across our entire region of the US, along with managing our pipeline and goal.
