CFLane Hires Raymond van Beveren to Oversee Construction Services

Raymond van Beveren hired as Senior Vice President of Construction Services at CFLane.

ATLANTA (Feb. 7, 2014) — CFLane, one of the fastest growing apartment management firms in the country, has hired Raymond van Beveren as senior vice president of construction services. Van Beveren joins from Bell Partners, where he held a similar position.

At CFLane, van Beveren leads the construction services department, which is responsible for the due diligence, analysis and execution of renovations and capital improvements for the apartment communities that are managed by the firm or are being acquired by Cocke Finkelstein Inc. (CFI), CFLane’s parent company. He also oversees the purchasing and maintenance services departments. CFLane’s construction services department is expected to oversee more than $50 million in capital projects this year.

Van Beveren was recently selected as a scholarship recipient by the National Apartment Association’s (NAA) 2014 Leadership Lyceum program. He has been appointed to NAA’s 2014 Next Generation Leadership Task Force and served on the Building Codes Subcommittee within NAA’s Legislative Committee in 2013. Van Beveren began his professional career in 1995 as an on-site property manager for TVO North America.

“We are extremely excited about the addition of Raymond van Beveren to CFLane,” said Byron Cocke, co-CEO of CFLane. “He brings top-notch skills and extensive experience to our firm at a time when we’re positioned to experience dramatic growth.”

CFLane was created in spring 2013 when CFI, a full-service multifamily investment firm based in Atlanta, acquired Lane Company, forming a management and services subsidiary. Before the merger, CFI had approximately 10,000 apartment units under management, while Lane Company accounted for another 18,000 units. Since the merger, CFLane has added approximately 12,000 units to end 2013 managing 40,000 apartment units in 18 states, from Maryland to Nevada. The last three months of the year proved particularly active, as CFLane took over the management of 50 properties. CFLane’s portfolio includes communities owned by both CFI and third parties.
