East West Partners is celebrating some big leadership changes. We are excited to announce that Chris Frampton has been named our newest Managing Partner. While we’re thrilled that Frampton is now a Managing Partner, this isn’t the only change at East West Partners. Craig Ferraro, current Managing Partner, has announced his retirement after a long and successful tenure at the firm. Amy Cara has been appointed to take over our Denver office, replacing Frampton as Managing Partner there. But that’s not all: East West Partners is also happy to announce that Jay Lambiotte has been named our new Chief Financial Officer.
Chris Frampton joined East West Partners in 2002. Since then, he has led development and sales activities for Denver’s Riverfront Park and Union Station, as well as The Landmark in Greenwood Village. In his new role as managing partner, Frampton is dedicated to pushing East West Partners to new heights.
“We’ve had such amazing opportunities in Denver over the past 15 years,” Frampton said. “While this is a new chapter for the company, our core values of innovation, sustainability and community will continue to dictate our work.”
Frampton will oversee all development teams nationwide and current developments underway in Charleston, South Carolina; Denver, Snowmass and Vail, Colorado; Deer Valley, Utah; and Kauai, Hawaii.
Amy Cara has been a part of the East West Partners team since 1999, first serving as Chief Financial Officer for the Denver office and then transitioning to Managing Partner. As Managing Partner for the Denver officer, Cara is looking forward to leading the team on some of our biggest projects, including The Coloradan and 16 Chestnut.
“Creating inspiring places that allow people to connect is what excites me, and I love that it is so central to East West Partners’ ethos,” Cara said. “I’m thrilled to lead such an amazing team in Denver and am excited to see what this next chapter brings.”
Jay Lambiotte has been with East West Partners since 2003. Beginning in January 2018, Lambiotte will also serve as Chief Financial Officer, in addition to his role leading development of The Coloradoan. Lambiotte is enthusiastic and ready to tackle the challenges that come with managing both positions.
Lastly, East West Partners is sad to say goodbye to Managing Partner Craig Ferraro, who plans to retire. Ferraro has been with East West Partners since 2000, overseeing and spearheading numerous landmark projects, including Denver’s Union Station, One Empire Pass in Deer Valley, Snowmass Base Village, Tahoe Mountain Resorts and The Tides in Charleston.
“I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve accomplished here, but I’m ready to embark on the next phase of my life,” Ferraro said. “East West Partners is in great hands with Chris at the helm.”
As we enter the next phase in the company’s leadership and development, East West Partners wants to extend a big warm welcome to Frampton as our newest Managing Partner, and congratulate both Cara and Lambiotte on their new roles.
“This is an extremely exciting time for East West Partners,” said Founder and Chairman, Harry Frampton III. “We look forward to Chris’ leadership, experience and passion as the company enters a new era.”
