Before that, Mr. Norvell spent over four years at Woodridge Capital Partners where he helped manage over $3 billion worth of real estate assets. Of particular note, Mr. Norvell worked directly with Woodridge Capital’s CEO to successfully structure both equity and debt financing for the redevelopment of the Century Plaza Hotel ─ a US $2 billion development ─ then the largest project in the City of Los Angeles.
