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, 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. He played an integral role in the development and construction of the Fireweed Business Center, along with numerous other projects, and continues to work with his team on evaluating additional real estate partnership and investment opportunities.

“Real estate has always been a cornerstone of CIRI’s business portfolio,” Nugent says. “I am excited to build upon the department’s past success through strategic planning and development and to lead the Real Estate team in identifying new opportunities that will provide long-term returns to CIRI and our shareholders.”
