American Campus Communities, Inc. (NYSE:ACC), the largest owner, manager and developer of high-quality student housing properties in the U.S., today announced that the company’s board of directors has promoted William Talbot to chief investment officer. In this role, Talbot will provide strategic direction and executive oversight of the investment platform, which includes acquisition and development activity, as well as dispositions and asset management, for the Austin-based company with $4.5 billion in gross assets.

Talbot has served American Campus for more than 11 years, most recently as executive vice president of investments. Talbot joined ACC in 2001 as the director of investments when the company’s total assets were approximately $250 million. Over the years, his career advanced as the director of asset management and investments, the vice president of acquisitions, and as the senior vice president of acquisitions/investments. Since 2004, including those projects currently under contract, Talbot has been involved with the acquisition of more than 130 properties totaling approximately $4.0 billion including the public merger of GMH Communities Trust and the portfolio acquisitions of Royal Properties, Campus Acquisitions and 19 properties from Kayne Anderson scheduled to close during the fourth quarter.

“William Talbot’s strategic leadership, transaction acumen and collaboration within the organization have been instrumental in creating value for the company,” said Bill Bayless, American Campus CEO. “He is the right person to lead the investment team during a time of industry consolidation and high-quality growth for the company.”
