Nicholas S.

When asked about his role at ARCP, Mr. Kay explained, "I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to join the extraordinary group of people that make up the ARCP management team.  After a great run at Capital Automotive, I look forward to continue working in the capital markets and am excited to once again be part of a public company."
