Rodney Y. Yarger, Board Member

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Rod attended Northwestern University in Evanston Illinois where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 1979. In 1981 Rod received an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis, after which he returned to Dayton where he was employed as part of the executive management team for a local industrial distribution company.

Rod has been in the real estate and asset management businesses since 1989 when he joined the Asset Management division of LaSalle Partners, an international real estate company headquartered in Chicago Illinois (which now through a series of acquisitions and mergers is Jones Lang LaSalle). Rod managed and leased commercial real estate for LaSalle for the next several years. In 1998, Rod syndicated a greenfield development in southwestern Indiana involving a consortium of industrial distributors and a Fortune 200 corporation in order to build and operate a facility and service company as part of that development.

Rod was a Finalist for Ernest & Young‘s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2001 and he still resides in Dayton Ohio with his wife of 33 years. He and his family have remained active in the region as well as nationally in real estate related activities.
