His extensive experience in property acquisitions, development, structuring, and the management of equity capital have contributed to Dominion Partners’ substantial growth in a short eight years. In its brief history, Dominion has produced nearly 1,500 senior living and conventional multifamily units in new communities across the southeast U.S., with more than 500 planned or currently under construction.

Al is committed to the company’s vision and values, and expresses this commitment through his involvement with many not-for-profits and ministries.  He serves as Chairman of the Board of Campus Outreach, as Board Chair of The WellHouse, on the Advisory Board of LIV Development, and is actively involved with Young Business Leaders and Make Way Partners.
