CHADWICK STULL SMITH, PRESIDENT
A graduate of Pennsylvania State University in Economics and Finance, Chad began his career in business management for Prudential Financial. He innovated their business processes, outsourced and managed them internally and abroad, and developed operational technology to optimize their business platform. He desired a more entrepreneurial career and transitioned into business development joining his family’s 95-year-old company distributing industrial products throughout the northeast region.
The 2008 recession offered a unique opportunity in urban real estate and, seizing the opportunity, he started developing buildings outfitted with smart technology in Philadelphia. Some of the projects Chad has spearheaded and completed within this role include 938 New Market Street, Philadelphia’s first Energy Star Certified mid rise apartment building; 929 Hancock Street, a 4,500 square foot LEED Platinum connected smart home with Green Roof; and Phase 1 of 1700 Germantown Avenue, an approximately 163,000 square foot mixed use project, currently outfitted with a 11,000 square foot Community Engagement Park and Outdoor Venue.
In addition, Chad has worked as as a consultant on many projects, helping to ensure proper development, management and technological inclusion and implementation methods. These projects include Clendenon Properties, a 55,000 square foot, 51-unit Sustainable apartment building in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia, not far from the Vine Street Lot.
In addition to his management and development experience, Chad is also an active member in a variety of professional membership and charitable organizations including but not limited to: The Builders Industry Association (BIA) of Philadelphia, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Merion Golf Club, Habitat for Humanity, Hopeworks N’ Camden, and numerous Philadelphia-based Registered Community Groups including Olde Kensington Neighbors Association, South Kensington Community Partners, Northern Liberties Neighbors Association, Old City District and Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM).
