The Triad Business Journal has a nice article on Jon Bell’s ascension to the CEO role for the company his father founded 40 years ago.
After seven years as president of the apartment investment and management company his father founded in 1976, Jon Bell has moved up a rung and will begin serving as CEO on Feb. 1.
In that new role, Bell said he’s going to be more focused on the “big picture” and long-term growth of the company, while new President Lili Dunn will be more involved in the day-to-day operation of Greensboro-based Bell Partners.
“The CEO role is more strategic, more big picture, involved with guiding the organization,” Bell told me Wednesday. “We’ve had a lot of evolution at Bell Partners over the past five or 10 years. But we’re just getting started.”
That evolution has included shifting its focus exclusively to high-end multi-family residential complexes in growing markets, a change Bell Partners announced five years ago this month that included rebranding its communities with the Bell name.
