Richard D. Gann, JD
Managing Partner

Richard (Rick) Gann is a graduate of UCLA and California Western School of Law. He has been a member of the State Bar since 1997. While finishing law school and studying for the bar exam, Rick befriended his then-neighbor, Jason McMurtry. Rick and Jason have worked together, with few interruptions, for over 20 years.

Before transitioning to financial services, Rick practiced law for nine years in the fields of real-estate taxation and estate planning. Rick proudly helped numerous clients manage taxes on their real-estate holdings and investments. Rick’s inspiration for helping property owners came from his grandfather, Paul Gann, author of California’s Proposition 13, which lowered property taxes and sparked a nationwide movement of fiscal conservatism.

In 2006, Rick joined Jason at Grubb & Ellis, fka Triple Net Properties. As an attorney, licensed real-estate broker, Rick developed and supervised a retail division of the company, offering 1031-exchange solutions through a network of commercial brokers across the country.

Later, at Steadfast Companies, Rick helped lead a capital markets team that raised over $1.5 billion from individual investors to acquire over 100 apartment communities across the South and Midwest. Rick also helped create a new 1031-exchange program, designed for individual investors seeking to co-invest in REIT-owned properties.

Subsequently, Rick was President of the Stira Alcentra Global Credit Fund, which merged in May 2019 with the Priority Income Fund. Rick has been an active member of both the Institute for Portfolio Alternatives (IPA) and Alternative & Direct Investment Securities Association (ADISA) since 2007.

Rick and his wife, Amy, live in Portland, Oregon and also spend a great deal of time in the Seattle area. The Ganns have one son, currently attending college in the UK.
