Nick McKinney

Principal, Chief Strategy Officer



As Chief Strategy Officer, Nick is responsible for assisting the executive team with developing, communicating and implementing strategic initiatives. In addition, he works with our internal teams and assist them with business planning, initiatives and client pursuits. Nick’s passion is helping our clients and teams simplify complex ideas or projects into simple, actionable plans that promote progress and ultimate success. He also focuses on building our culture and ensuring that it remains a living and breathing ethos that embraces people as people and not as corporate robots. His favorite business tool is an Expo dry-erase marker and room full of whiteboards. A key to helping teams break down complex problems is creating visual cues that help connect dots and identify a path forward.

In addition to his role as CSO, he leads our marketing and communication teams that support the entire platform across multiple markets. Given his deep experience and passion for the faith-based and not-for-profit sector, he remains very involved with the continual growth and evolution of this service offering as it has grown to be the largest real estate service provider in this highly unique sector.

As a founding member of the company, Nick is incredibly grateful and proud of what Foundry has become. He had a rare opportunity to help build a company from scratch with some of his closest friends and mentors and create a place where people can grow their career, expand their talents and thrive as a person – our people, our clients and our business is very personal to us and that is what drives us to serve and perform at the highest levels.
