Quentin Reynolds has been named Chief Investment Officer of Boston-based The Davis Cos., succeeding CEO Jonathan Davis in the role for the real-estate development firm. Davis will continue to lead the company as CEO and serve on the firm’s investment committee.

Reynolds has spent the past seven years as managing director of The Davis Cos., leading the company’s 14-member investment team and originating some $4 billion in investments for the company’s four real estate funds and non-fund investments.

“Quentin is a highly valued member of our senior team and a great investor and steward of capital,” Davis said in a statement. “He has played a key role in developing and implementing our investment strategy for years and has proven he is well-suited to succeed me as CIO.  I look forward to continuing to work closely with Quentin in investing our current fund.”

Reynolds previously spent 15 years with Silverpeak Real Estate Partners and its predecessor, the now-defunct Lehman Bros. He has a bachelor’s from the University of Virginia and a master of business administration with a concentration in finance from Columbia Business School.

“I look forward to continuing to support The Davis Companies’ efforts to provide strategic investment opportunities to our clients,” Reynolds said in a statement. “It’s been my pleasure to work with Jon and the experienced, passionate, highly diverse team that we have assembled at Davis.”
