Kelly Young Promoted to Senior Development Manager
Russell is thrilled to announce the promotion of KELLY YOUNG to Senior Development Manager!
Kelly joined our team back in March with extensive development and construction management experience. She has proven to be a strong contributor on our development team ever since as she has provided many development resources necessary to secure the 20 acre business park for the State of Florida that Russell is developing down in Tallahassee.
Kelly is involved in numerous student housing professional organizations and has been invited multiple times to present to peers and university officials at national conferences. She has received ranking by Student Housing Business magazine as one of the top developers in the country and has been profiled four years in a row in the Student Housing Business Golf Book as a leader in the industry. She also serves as a board member for the Hilltop Campus Village, serving as Vice President for the Davenport, IA district. Along with this, she also served on the organizing committee for the 2016 Iowa Historic Preservation Summit and is a member of the Women’s Connection. For her work, Kelly was nominated by the Hilltop stakeholders to receive the Main Street Iowa Leadership Award which she was rewarded by Governor Kim Reynolds with in April.
Outside of her career, Kelly enjoys volunteering at her church, fundraising for the church supported grade school and assisting with classroom reading programs. She also loves hosting themed dinner parties and experimenting with new recipes. Kelly and her husband, Kevin, have been married for 15 years and have a lab-mix named Champ who is two.
