Chad Nugent is responsible for CIRI’s Real Estate department, managing CIRI’s diverse property investments in and outside of Alaska. He joined CIRI in 2013 to assist in the development of the Fireweed Business Center and other projects, and quickly proved himself as an indispensable member of the CIRI management team.
A lifelong Alaskan, Nugent comes from a construction and development family, and started learning the business early on, pushing brooms on job sites as a kid. From there, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in business management from Montana State University before owning and running a successful commercial civil construction company for a decade.
Nugent has a strong knowledge base in insurance, finance and real estate in the development sector and has been a vertical project manager on many complex, technical projects.
