Mark Cover to discuss “Envisioning the Future in a Dynamic City”
The Bauer College Alumni Association (BCAA) will feature Hines Southwest Regions CEO Mark Cover as the keynote speaker of their breakfast series at 7 a.m. on April 16 at the Houston City Club to discuss the topic “Envisioning the Future in a Dynamic City.”
Since Hines celebrated the Williams Tower completion in 1983, it has dominated the uptown landscape as the third-tallest skyscraper in Houston. But that year also saw another celebration for Hines. The company welcomed Cover to lead the southwest region of the international real estate firm.
Senior Managing Director, CEO, Southwest Region
Mark Cover has aided in the “development, acquisition and/or management of more than 28 million square feet of commercial real estate” worth over $2 billion in five states — Texas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona — and internationally in Mexico and Panama.
Cover is also notably responsible for the development of high-rise condominiums, critical investment relationships, and property financings throughout the region. In recent years, he has aided in the management of properties such as the 289-unit tower called Hines Market Square, which broke ground in January 2015. Completion of this is expected in 2017.
Cover received a Bachelor’s in Accounting from Bob Jones University in 1982, just a year prior to joining Hines. He became a Certified Public Accountant in 1987 but has since retired from this position.
