Vecino Group names Kody Redwing as President

Success from one quarter to the next is great. But for a company focused on making significant community impact through housing, planning for the long haul isn’t just “greater”—it’s imperative. With this in mind, the Vecino Group proudly announces Kody Redwing as President.

Joining the Vecino Group in 2017, Mr. Redwing has worked in multiple capacities within the organization, serving first as Lead Underwriter, then Chief Financial Officer and most recently President of Vecino Capital — the latter role being one that he will maintain.

“I was originally drawn to Vecino for the opportunity to create a meaningful impact through development,” said Redwing. “Currently we’ve helped create 3,764 affordable homes across the U.S. I’m deeply humbled
to assume the role of President and feel lucky to be part of a talented organization that does so much good
in the world.”

As President, Redwing will help guide strategic planning and management for the Vecino Group and its vertically integrated national businesses. Core to the company’s mission are affordable and supportive housing, and Mr. Redwing will strive to strengthen these while further exploring new approaches—such as unique public private partnerships— to create mission-driven growth. Mr. Redwing assumes the role from Rick Manzardo, who led as President for eight years.  Mr. Manzardo will focus on expanding Vecino Group development in 2023 while transitioning to lead its Board of Directors as Chairman.

“When I was considering stepping away from management to focus on deal generation and assembling our Board, having Kody here made my decision an easy one. He brings such genuine energy and dedication to development, which has earned him the respect of his teams.” said Manzardo.

Reflecting on Redwing’s new role, Vecino Group Chief Executive Officer Matthew Miller said, “This is earned and deserved. As both the Chief Financial Officer and as President of Vecino Capital, he’s not only risen to each challenge, but excelled.”

“Kody brings both a keen business knowledge and a finance-driven focus to his role of President. But perhaps most importantly, he possesses the character and humanity necessary to lead a company like Vecino.”
