Sean Garrett

Real estate executive Sean Garrett announced the founding of Pierpont Ventures in Peoria, Illinois. Pierpont is a real estate and alternative asset investment company with a national focus. The company identifies and thoroughly vets real estate and business opportunities to create targeted investment vehicles that look to provide exceptional returns for the investors, clients, and communities it serves.   

“There is a huge opportunity right now to acquire real estate assets as well as privately-held businesses,” said Founder Sean Garrett. “Our investors are looking to take advantage by diversifying and placing their capital in professionally managed investments with significant long-term appreciation potential in today’s inflationary environment.”

As president of acquisitions at Cullinan Properties, Garrett was previously responsible for identifying and acquiring strategic investments across the country for the company. Prior to joining Cullinan, Garrett worked at another nationally respected firm, Western Development Corporation, in Washington, D.C. where he helped coordinate the pre-development of over one million square feet of mixed-use development along the East Coast. With 15 years of experience in commercial real estate development, Garrett has helped develop a variety of projects including The Levee District in East Peoria, Illinois, Burleson Commons in the DFW Metroplex, Asheville Outlets in North Carolina and Georgetown Park in Washington, D.C.

Recruited to the Peoria area by Cullinan Properties, Sean Garrett has been very involved in the community, most notably having served as president of the Business PAC of Central Illinois and as a member of the CEO Council.
