At the Sponsor Spotlight at Kettler, Founder and Chairman Robert C. Kettler, described his company’s history. Bob Kettler, founding partner, provided an overview of the company’s history and current strategy. When the company was founded in 1977, the company originally created planned communities. The company has developed more than 15,400 apartments and condominiums within 65 communities. As the real estate market has shifted, so has the Kettler vision, and the company now focuses on innovative mixed-use designs that maximize limited land in urban areas. In 2988, the firm expanded to include a management company, Kettler Management. Today they manage more than 19,000 apartments in 85 communities and over 1.7 million square feet of office and retail space from New Jersey to North Carolina.
