A longtime real estate finance veteran who has served as chief financial officer at several shops in the Washington, D.C., area has joined Bonaventure as its new CFO.

Barry H. Bass brings more than three decades of real estate finance experience to the alternative asset management company. His experience includes serving as CFO both at Carr Properties and First Potomac Realty Trust, where he assisted the office and industrial real estate investment trust in completing its initial public offering in 2003 before it was acquired by Government Properties Income Trust in 2017.

Most recently, Bass served as CFO at Holistic Industries, one of the largest multi-state cannabis operators in the country.

At Bonaventure, Bass will oversee the finance functions of the company and its private REIT, including financing activities, financial reporting, accounting, treasury and tax. The company operates a portfolio of over 6,000 apartments across 26 properties primarily in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast U.S., according to the firm.

Bass will be based in the company’s Alexandria, Virginia, headquarters.

“His broad financial expertise, deep capital markets knowledge and vast network of industry relationships will be of significant value to the company as we accelerate our growth plans, expand our investor base and introduce new product offerings,” Dwight Dunton, founder and CEO of Bonaventure, said in a release announcing the hire.
