Bonaventure has named long-time real estate finance executive Barry H. Bass as chief financial officer.


Bass most recently was chief financial officer of Holistic Industries, a cannabis grower and marketer in Potomac, Md., but before that had been with commercial real estate companies. Those include Willco, a family office in the Washington, D.C., area, where he was managing director of capital markets; Carr Properties; and First Potomac Realty Trust, where he was chief financial officer. He was instrumental in taking First Potomac public in 2003.


Bonaventure is an Alexandria, Va., investment manager that specializes in the apartment sector in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions. Bass will oversee the company’s finance functions and that of an affiliated private REIT.


“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,” explained Dwight Dunton, founder and chief executive of Bonaventure.
