Archstone, the developer, operator and investor of U.S. apartment buildings, has named developer Samuel Fuller to the post of executive vice president of investments for the northeast.
Mr. Fuller was most recently president of Fuller Development, a Darien, C.T.-based company he founded. In 1993 he also helped to form AvalonBay Communities, the northern Virginia-based REIT, according to his bio on the Fuller Development web site.
In his new position he’ll be responsible for Archstone’s northeastern development pipeline, with a focus on New York and Boston. That pipeline currently represents over $210 million in anticipated investments.
“We are committed to attracting and retaining the best people and developers in the country,” Archstone’s chief development officer, Neil Brown, said in a prepared statement about Mr. Fuller’s hire. “The addition of Sam into this important role will further improve our platform and our Northeast Region development efforts.”
Archstone is currently in a quiet period, so a company spokesperson wouldn’t comment on the appointment other than to say that Mr. Fuller has already started working for the company, which has been on a bit of a hiring and promoting spree as of late.
In July, the company promoted Charles Mueller Jr. to president and chief operating officer. And the announcement of Mr. Fuller’s hiring was accompanied by news that Dean Wilson had been appointed to senior vice president of development for the Washington, D.C. area and Dennis Suarez to senior vice president of development for the southeast and Texas.
