Tom Neyer, Jr.
Chairman and CEO
Tom is Chairman and CEO of Neyer Holdings Corporation, an advisory, investment, and development group based in Cincinnati. Those three activities are concentrated in three areas: real estate, private capital, and public policy.
Neyer Holdings’ Real Estate Group seeks and creates extraordinary opportunities to generate value through unique combinations of functions in the financial, physical and market aspects of real estate. Tom has worked as an investor, developer, contractor, lender and consultant, with deep knowledge of the office, industrial, retail and hospitality sectors. Neyer Holdings’ Private Capital Group invests expertise and capital in earlier stage growth companies with strong management teams, solid business models and bold aspirations. In the policy realm, Tom advances his life-long interest in politics and policy as Chairman of MainStream, a public policy analysis, advocacy and political management shop.
Prior to forming Neyer Holdings in 2003, Tom was Chairman of his family’s regional design, construction, and commercial development firm. From 1997 to 2003, Tom served as Commissioner of Hamilton County, Ohio, in addition to his real estate and investing activities. During Tom’s tenure, Hamilton County completely reinvented itself, including the $1.5 billion reconstruction of Cincinnati’s riverfront, stadia and infrastructure, its approach to integrated human services delivery, and its role as the region’s preeminent government. As President of the Board, Tom and his colleagues directed the County’s policies, restructured and managed a $2.1 billion annual budget, and 6,400 employees.
Tom, his wife Christy, and their three-year old daughter Estelle live in Cincinnati’s Hyde Park neighborhood. Tom enjoys and attempts to play many different genre of music, ideally while sharing fine wines with great friends, and is an accomplished chef who has yet to poison anyone. He loves history and is a passionate but over-extended reader, and loves travel of all kinds — particularly that involving oceans, mountains, and golf.
