Despite being a big company, we really walk the walk of an entrepreneur. We take risks every day, and that reflects a level of innovation and creativity that is encouraged from top to bottom.—Daniele Colbertaldo | Portfolio Acquisitions
Amherst has an encouraging open-door culture from my experience. I can ask for the opinions of executive leaders. And in return, I am asked my opinion by executive leadership, which is invaluable. It gives me confidence to know I can grow with this company.—Nicholas Ndah, Director, Construction Operations
I analyzed the impact of pandemic-era unemployment benefits and stimulus checks on tenant pay rates. You can clearly see how government support during the pandemic financially helped our residents—and how responsible and disciplined our residents are. I strongly believe that our business practices can touch so many people’s lives.—Thu Vo, Financial Data Scientist
We’re always innovating as a capital markets team! We work together to bounce ideas off each other and have open discussion with everyone on the team – from junior analysts up to senior executives – on how we should approach a problem. Then, we come together to find the solution.—Max Weaver, Vice President, Private Equity
