"CapRock's focus on institutional-quality assets, and their entrepreneurial approach in acquiring, developing and adding value to them, makes them unique in the commercial real estate investment sector - and provides a significant competitive advantage," says Arnett. "I plan to leverage my expertise in all aspects of the acquisitions process to further our firm's mission and extend our success in delivering impressive returns to investors."
