ATLANTA, GA – CrowdVested, an online crowdfunding platform focused on commercial real estate, announced that long-time public affairs consultant and former Atlanta City Council President Cathy Woolard has joined the firm’s Board of Advisors.
Woolard brings an extensive and formidable resume to CrowdVested, where she will join seven other Atlanta-area business executives on the firm’s advisory board. The board provides strategic advice to the CrowdVested management team.
“The addition of Cathy Woolard to our advisory board will help CrowdVested strengthen and expand its mission to enable real estate developers to raise funds for new projects in Atlanta,” said Grady Thrasher, CEO of CrowdVested. “It takes vision to succeed in what we are attempting in Georgia, and Cathy has always been a visionary.”
When Woolard became Atlanta City Council president in 2002, she was the first woman to do so. She was an early proponent of the Atlanta BeltLine and supporter of the city’s tech community, first through her involvement with iVillage.com and then as a lobbyist for the American Electronics Association.
She also has been heavily involved in community development efforts, serving as a consultant to the Georgia Transit Coalition and Citizens for Progressive Transit.
