Crescent Hires Sagar Rathie as Director of Corporate Finance and Investor Relations


Crescent Communities announced the appointment of Sagar Rathie as director of corporate finance and investor relations.
In this role, Rathie will provide direct support to Crescent’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer in the execution of the company’s multiyear strategic plan with a focus on achieving investment and balance sheet objectives. He will also be responsible for directing and overseeing investor relations and helping to analyze and review potential investment opportunities.
Rathie was most recently with Piper Jaffray’s investment banking group in Charlotte, where he spent several years advising private equity clients and family-held businesses on mergers and acquisitions and debt and equity capital raises.
“With his experience providing financial advisory services to a variety of businesses, Sagar will be an asset to Crescent’s finance team and its shareholders, and we are excited to have him on board,” said Kevin Lambert, chief financial officer.
Prior to Piper Jaffray, Rathie worked for a pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline, before earning his MBA at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler School of Business.
“Crescent Communities is an innovative development company that seeks to create value not only for its investors but also for the communities in which it does business,” Rathie said. “That really appealed to me, and I look forward to working with the leadership team as we continue to deliver on that vision.”
