New Certified SDVOSB Joint Venture Partnership

Coharbor russell group, llc officially certified

Coharbor Group LLC and Russell are pleased to announce they have entered into a Joint Venture agreement to expand their capabilities in providing the federal government with build-to-suit commercial real estate development and facility operations. This new joint venture, named Coharbor Russell Group LLC, was officially approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Small Business Administration as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) on October 30, 2021.

The joint venture is led by Jacob Anderson, a former Major in the US Air Force and F-15E fighter pilot and founder of Coharbor Group. Jacob has over 14 years of experience operating and growing dynamic fast-paced organizations including multiple $100 M+ operations as an officer in the US Air Force, venture-funded startups, and traditional small businesses.

Russell Government Group, LLC is a registered affiliate of Russell that primarily focuses on procurement and delivery of real estate development pursuits for state, local and the federal government.  Based out of Davenport, Iowa, Russell has delivered numerous projects for the federal government, including projects for the General Services Administration, Social Security Administration, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Numerous Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC’s) for the VA are included in Russell’s portfolio, including in Galesburg, IL, Spirit Lake, IA, Fort Dodge, IA, Mason City, IA, and Norfolk, NE.

Together, the Coharbor Russell Group venture will leverage their extensive knowledge and resources to better achieve “On-Time” and “On-Target” build-to-suit projects for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and General Services Administration.

“I am eager and ready to lead Coharbor Russell Group on our mission of providing the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, and my fellow veterans, with clean, accessible, and modern medical facilities built throughout the country. Russell brings not only decades of commercial real estate development experience, but also a level of integrity and excellence that permeates their culture. I’m honored to be partnered with them and look forward to our future “On-Time” and “On-Target” real estate development projects.” said Jacob Anderson, CEO of Coharbor Russell Group.

Caitlin Russell, President of Russell, shared, “We are honored to be able to work in conjunction with Coharbor Group to provide these Community Based Outpatient Clinics to meet the needs of our regional veterans.  When we initially met Jacob, we were struck by his passion and similar corporate and personal philosophies – partnering with him was an easy decision.”

Prior to the joint venture agreement being approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Russell had the opportunity to provide mentorship services to Coharbor on two successful Community Based Outpatient Clinic pursuits in Spirit Lake and Mason City, Iowa.
