Rodney Williams is retiring from his position as principal and chief investment officer at Noble Investment Group at the end of the year. He will continue to serve on the firm’s investment committee as a senior advisor.
Williams joined Noble in 2004 as the company’s first CIO overseeing the company’s sourcing and investment underwriting as well as executing project developments. Prior to joining Noble, he was a managing principal with Hardin Capital, a joint venture between DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners and Hardin Construction, and held senior executive roles with Coopers & Lybrand, InterContinental Hotels, and Laventhol & Horwath.
“Rodney’s impact on our Noble organization has been profound,” said Mit Shah, Noble CEO. “His vision, integrity, and devotion have made us a better team. His benevolence and grace have made me a better person. Perhaps Rodney’s most important legacy will be his most valued endeavor – helping to develop and inspire our next generation of Noble stewards to lead lives that matter.”
“It has been an honor to have helped Mit foster an organization of such enduring value,” said Williams. “I am so very proud of our team and our superior track record as an institutional fiduciary, and I am equally excited about the firm’s next generation of leadership and growth. My colleagues at Noble are my family, and our journey together has been the most rewarding of my career.”
Atlanta-based Noble recently acquired the Hilton Garden Inn Charleston/Mt. Pleasant in Charleston, South Carolina.
