M&S Welcomes Katie Stuart-Buckley To The Team As Development Director

M&S Development welcomes Katie Stuart-Buckley to their team as Director of Project Development. Katie’s experience as a municipal official, housing developer, and most recently as the Commissioner of Housing & Community Development in the Agency of Commerce & Community Development for the State of Vermont, means she is uniquely qualified to support the M&S mission of Empowering Community Revitalization. As Director of Project Development, she will lead M&S to provide real estate development, capital sourcing, and deal-structuring services to projects which benefit economically challenged communities. Katie understands the fundamentals required for economic growth and social vitality within rural and distressed communities and is committed to advancing projects grounded in the responsible development of our cities and towns. Her years of dedication to the region and the State of Vermont are evident through her service as a board member with the Preservation Trust of Vermont, Vermont Downtown Development Board, Vermont Housing Finance Agency, Windham Regional Commission, Vermont Disaster Recovery Fund, and the Friends of Algiers Village. According to Katie, “The key to unlocking the rural economy is the revitalization of our historic downtowns and villages. At M&S, we work to reimagine Main Street for the 21st century by creating places for people of all ages and incomes to live, work and play.”

Prior to her appointment by the Governor, Katie held leadership roles involving municipal management and finance, sensitive redevelopment of historic buildings for adaptive reuse, non-profit affordable housing, and community and economic development.

Katie is excited to collaborate with Stevens & Associates to provide a suite of services to support transformative downtown projects and community revitalization.  To learn more visit: Stevens & Associates, P.C.
