Pradera Group was established to provide quality general contracting, construction management, and real estate services throughout the state of Georgia. The team that leads Pradera Group has the experience to execute on a wide range of project types and sizes.
Prior to co-founding Pradera Group Mike spent over a decade working for real estate investment and development firms performing both asset and construction management roles. From 2009-2014 Mike was employed at Starwood Capital Group, one of the largest private real estate investment firms in the world, rehabbing and developing commercial property in the Southeast including Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. While working at Starwood Mike oversaw the renovation of 28 aging apartment communities consisting of over 10,000 units, a $50M ground up development in northern Virginia and many other land development and commercial renovation projects.

Mike’s responsibilities with Pradera include business development, preconstruction, accounting and finance.
Mike graduated with honors from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate. He currently resides in the Sandy Springs neighborhood of Atlanta with his wife Kristin and young children James and Elle.
