2015: The Summer of Interns
Once again, Jaindl Properties is expanding. This past week, we brought on another team member, a summer intern, Chris Thompson. Soon to start his final year at Lehigh University, Chris is a Finance major with an interest in commercial real estate which he is assuredly going to be learning a lot about here at Jaindl Properties, especially with the The Waterfront taking off next month. Previously an intern at two other companies, Thompson brings a lot of experience to the table. Two years ago, he served as an intern at DriveWealth, a mobile trading platform in New Jersey. Just last year, he interned as a Summer Analyst in Manhattan at DH Capital, a boutique investment banking firm.
Since Chris is from outside of the Lehigh Valley (Cincinatti, Ohio to be exact) we’re looking forward to the fresh perspective he can bring to the company. Following suit to our COO, Zac Jaindl, Thompson is the current President of Lehigh’s Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. A former rower on Lehigh’s Crew team, Chris now participates on their Club Soccer team and also plays piano and guitar in his spare time.
“I’m excited to get involved with Jaindl Properties especially with everything going on with The Waterfront. Being a former rower, I’ve spent a lot of time on the Lehigh River so it’ll be great to see it developed and be a part of the team who’s building. I’m looking forward to working with the whole Jaindl Properties team; I’m ready to learn a lot.”
