JOHN ford 

John’s years of real estate development have resulted in an expansive network of strong working relationships throughout the industry and culminated in more than $155 million (and counting!) in completed projects. He possesses a versatile, start-to-finish understanding of the development process including site selection, market demand drivers, municipality coordination, financial, and deal development. His integral involvement in numerous multi-million dollar high-rise office acquisitions throughout the Midwest have been proof-positive that he is intimately familiar with the ever-evolving real estate development landscape and can leverage that acumen into the realization of any project vision.


Prior to co-founding Catalyst Partners, John was the Development Director for one of Milwaukee’s most state-of-the-art high-rise office building that was awarded the Milwaukee Business Journal Real Estate Award’s Project of the Year in 2017. Outside the office, John enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, traveling, running, coaching, and volunteering with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and serving on its Southeast Wisconsin chapter’s board of directors.
