The Commercial Council has named two new co-chairman in Stephen C. Gault, Stephen C. Gault Company, and Bill Weyland, CITY Properties Group. These men assume their new roles this month.
Steve Gault founded the Stephen C. Gault Company in 1991. His full service brokerage company specializes in the sale and leasing of industrial real estate. Stephen C. Gault Company also provides land development and project management. Some of their developments include the Eastpoint Business Center and the Southpoint Business Center. Gault is active in the real estate community and the community at large. He is an active member of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors and a member of the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors. Steve is also a Trustee of Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services and the College of Wooster; he serves on the boards of The Morton Center and Louisville Free Public Library Foundation. In 2001 he received the March of Dimes Commercial Real Estate Achievement Award.
Bill Weyland is the managing member of CITY Properties Group and is an award-winning architect and real estate broker. CITY Properties Group is a locally-based group of real estate experts, urban planners, preservationists, architects, and asset managers who have developed more than $100 million worth of real estate in Louisville over the past 15 years. Bill is passionate about revitalizing Louisville’s downtown and is responsible for projects such as the Louisville Slugger Museum, the historic Henry Clay, the Arena’s Wiskey Row Lofts, and he is currently in the process of creating a sustainable mixed-use urban neighborhood that is Liberty Green. Bill is also very involved in the community serving on numerous boards and providing consulting for others in the development industry across the country. In 2009 he received the March of Dimes Commercial Real Estate Achievement Award.
“Steve and Bill will be tremendous co-chairman of the Commercial Council,” said Chuck Kavanaugh, executive vice president of the HBAL. “They individually possess strengths and skills that will continue to position the Commercial Council as the leading advocate and voice for the commercial real estate industry in Louisville. Bill’s background as an urban developer and Steve’s with primarily suburban development also brings diversity to our leadership that has not been represented in the past,” he added.
Past chairman of the Council have been Jim Dahlem, Dahlem Companies, and Fred Faulkner, Faulkner Real Estate in 2010-2011 and Bob Duane, Duane Realty and Development, and John Hollenbach, Hollenbach-Oakley in 2007-2009.
The Commercial Council’s mission is to speak with one voice on behalf of the commercial development community addressing the complex issues affecting the development of commercial and industrial properties throughout Metro Louisville.
