At the June 2020 board meeting, the Town Center Community Improvement District renewed board officers and three board posts. In addition, the board appointed Steven Cadranel, president and founder of Arris Realty Partners, to serve in Post 5 for the CID board.

Renewed in the meeting are the three-year terms for Kelly Keappler, Darin Mitchell and Marie Moore. Keappler, president of Quintus Development, has served on the CID’s board since 2007 and currently serves as Chairman. Mitchell, executive director at Chase, has served on the board since 2014 and currently serves as Treasurer. Moore, general manager at Simon Property Group, has served on the board since 2016. Also, serving as Vice Chairman for another year is Dan Buyers, Partner and Senior Vice President of McWhirter Realty.

Cadranel, a life-long resident of Atlanta, will help support the CID’s mission to improve the Town Center district. He has more than 30 years’ experience developing, managing, and acquiring a variety of retail and mixed-use projects throughout the southern and eastern United States. Cadranel was instrumental in the creation of the Mall of Georgia and the foundation for what is now known as the Buckhead Shops Atlanta. He also developed the Cliftwood luxury multi-family property and its complimentary retail and restaurant center, located along Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

Cadranel is a University of Georgia graduate with a business and real estate and urban development degree. He is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, he serves as trustee and incoming vice chairman for the Kennesaw State University Foundation, board member and past president of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, and board member of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. He is a recipient of KSU Foundation’s Claris C. Bagwell award for Distinguished Service, the Erwin Zaban Entrepreneurial Spirit Award, the Erwin Zaban Bridge Builder Award, KSU Foundation’s Chairman’s Award, and he was the 2019 BB&T Harry Maziar Golf Classic tournament honoree.

Kelly Keappler, Town Center CID Board Chairman, says, “Steven is well-accomplished in his field and an enthusiastic volunteer in the communities that he serves. Those are great qualities for a member of our board. We work very collaboratively, and he will make a great addition to the team.”

When he is not working or volunteering, Cadranel and his wife of 34 years, Janet, enjoy spending time with their two children, family and friends, traveling and relaxing at their lake home retreat.
