We have placed a strong emphasis on hiring exceptionally talented people that share our values and vision to redefine multifamily investing. Will’s hiring is a great example of this and will have a positive impact on our firm’s future growth.”

Beam is active within the multifamily industry, serving on National Multi Housing Council’s (NMHC) Emerging Leaders Committee. He was named an “Emerging Leader in Multifamily” by Real Estate Forum in 2015 and received Heitman’s Core Values Award for Innovation in 2011.

“It’s a unique opportunity to be part of an innovative company such as Magnolia Capital,” Beam said. “I’ll be able to shape the emerging portfolio while working in an entrepreneurial culture that is determined to redefine our industry.”
