Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Wednesday, March 15th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to discuss professional development and career plans with this month's featured guest, Veronica Gonzalez, Vice President of Commercial Development for The Resurrection Project (TRP)

Veronica joined TRP’s Real Estate Development team in 2016. As TRP’s Vice President of Commercial Development, Veronica is responsible for the development of community/commercial facilities. This includes managing Commercial Development through the project’s lifecycle (e.g. site control, construction completion, grand opening and operations). She builds financial models and performs due diligence for both TRP commercial developments and partner agencies in TRP’s footprint communities. She leads the team in securing private & public financial resources i.e. new market tax credits, TIF, private debt, etc. Ultimately, Veronica promotes and maintain strong working relationships within the development community and with partner community service providers.

Veronica has eighteen years of experience managing complex, multifamily, mixed-use, mixed-finance development projects for public housing authorities, municipalities, and private affordable housing developers. Prior to joining TRP, Veronica worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP gaining extensive experience consulting for housing authorities, LIHTC applications, RAD and asset repositioning and recapitalization strategies. Veronica possesses a diverse set of real estate skills developed from working in all aspects of the development for more than 1500 new and rehabbed mixed-income units developed with HUD, LIHTC, FHLB, HOME, TIF, and other equity and debt sources with total development costs of more than $350 million. She has also led master planning and strategic planning services for community developments, housing authority asset repositioning initiatives, downtowns, and University Master planning initiatives. Her experience working with PHAs and municipal governments provides a unique opportunity to understand both the developer’s perspective as well as government process/approvals for entitlements, economic incentives and garnering community support.

This is a members-only event limited to five participants. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches.
