Catalyst was founded by Paris Rutherford and Rhys Heinsch on their belief that truly successful urban development requires skill in the creation of memorable places, customized finance, and public/private collaboration. This combination of expertise has resulted in Catalyst’s current development of over $240M in urban housing, mixed-use and transit-oriented projects, its collaboration with over 45 public and private entities since 2009, and its procurement and facilitation of over $2.3B in debt and equity during this time. The success of these efforts is rooted in Catalyst’s dynamic team of proven professionals having over 50 years of collective experience and a 10 year working relationship. In addition to their oversight of Catalyst itself, Mr. Rutherford and Mr. Heinsch are closely involved with the Catalyst team in its development, financial procurement, and strategic planning efforts.
