CA Ventures, a U.S. real estate investment holding company, has appointed Steve Boyack CEO of CA Management Services (CAMS), the firm’s new property management arm announced last December. CAMS oversees operations for CA’s 15,000-bed portfolio of student housing communities, as well as CA’s growing number of residential communities throughout the U.S., Europe and South America.
“When we were looking to expand our property management capabilities through the creation of CAMS, a company built on superior service standards and innovative technology, we knew having the right leadership in place was critical to upholding those standards across our student housing and residential portfolios,” said Tom Scott, CEO of CA Ventures. “Steve’s cross-sector management experience, together with his foresight in building technology and ability to attract and retain employees who share his passion for the industry, will help establish CAMS as a preferred employer and property manager in markets both nationally and internationally.”
Active in the multifamily industry for more than 25 years, Boyack joins CAMS from Greystar, where he was a senior managing director leading the company’s expansion and day-to-day operations in key Midwest markets, including Chicago and Minneapolis. Prior to Greystar, Boyack spent 15 years at the Laramar Group, where he held progressively senior positions, the last being chief operating officer in charge of all facets of property operations. In that capacity, he also served as a member of both the executive and investment committees.
“I am thrilled to join the CA Ventures team and lead the firm’s expansion in property management,” said Boyack. “Having collaborated with CA in the past, I saw firsthand the high-quality team they’ve assembled, the caliber of product they bring to market and the industry-leading applications of data and technology they have used to accelerate their growth. Most of all, I have a high alignment with the values that CA sets forth, including a passion to identify opportunities, move past obstacles and lead the industry in building and process innovation.”
Boyack holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Iowa and a CPM designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).
