Jernigan Capital Names Chief Investment Officer
Jernigan Capital Inc., a Memphis-based real estate investment trust that provides debt and equity capital for self-storage facilities, has named Jonathan Perry executive vice president and chief investment officer. He is expected to join the company in early June.
Perry comes to JCAP from CubeSmart, where he has held several positions since 2008, most recently as senior vice president and chief investment officer.
As Jernigan Capital’s chief investment officer, Perry will oversee all of the company’s investment and asset management activities, including developing relationships with self-storage entrepreneurs, originating new investment opportunities finalizing new investments and managing relationships with the company’s third-party managers.
Perry will be the third member of Jernigan Capital’s investment committee, alongside chairman and CEO Dean Jernigan and president and chief operating officer John Good.
Though Perry is new to JCAP, he has a long history of working with Dean Jernigan. Perry began his career in 1998 at Storage USA – which Jernigan founded – and served in a variety of roles there until the company was acquired by GE Capital in 2002.
After a period with GE Capital, he partnered with Jernigan in a private investment partnership that owned and operated self-storage facilities.
Jernigan called Perry “one of the most talented executives in the self-storage sector.”
“As we continue to provide innovative capital solutions to self-storage entrepreneurs while we move into different stages of the real estate cycle, I am confident that Jonathan’s experience, relationships and prominence in the self-storage industry will create additional opportunities for JCAP to create value for our shareholders.”
