Carl Schirtzinger is responsible for leading and integrating RUME Holding’s diverse business development, property management and construction divisions. He maintains accountability for P&L and execution of the business plan, and as chief integrator he holds the leadership team accountable for all deliverables and results – and serves as the tie-breaker in those rare instances of contested decisions.
Since co-founding the company, Carl has provided the vision and strategic planning that have powered RUME’s rapid, sustainable growth and commitment to excellence. Leveraging his engineering background as the catalyst, Carl has put in place a professional team that deploys state of the art technology to manage and monitor every aspect of RUME’s business. He has also worked with industry leading technology providers to design and pilot new systems and technologies specific to the multifamily industry.
Carl embarked on a career in multifamily real-estate in the mid-1990s. He later extended his industry expertise as principal at Hilltop Realty Advisors before founding Zinger Property Group (in 2010), which provides comprehensive property management services for the multifamily industry utilizing real time accountability systems and proven processes such as its unique occupied renovation strategy.
As Principal and President at Zinger, Carl has been responsible for acquisition and management activities, developing strong private and institutional equity partnerships and performing significant capital improvement projects to reposition properties for successful transformation. For the past five years Zinger has provided management services for Capital SMART, adding value through process improvement and capital renovation.
