McNally resigns from I-195 Redevelopment Commission for a new post

The I-195 Redevelopment Commission today announced that Executive Director, Peter McNally, has accepted a position at EverWest Real Estate Investors, a real estate investment management firm headquartered in Denver. He will be Senior Vice President and will lead the investor relations and capital raising department. Peter will divide his time between Denver and New York City while maintaining a residence in Providence. He will remain with the Commission until June 1, 2019.

Caroline Skuncik will serve as Acting Executive Director until the position is filled. Ms. Skuncik has been Vice President/ Senior Project Manager for the Commission since 2017 and previously worked at the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation where she led the Corporation’s real estate investment activities under the Rebuild Rhode Island Tax Credit and Tax Increment Financing programs.

“I want to thank Peter for his hard work and dedication to the work of the I-195 Redevelopment Commission,” said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. “He has led their efforts for nearly four years and I have always appreciated his focus on shaping the I-195 District into a vibrant place to work and live.”

“Transforming the parcels of the 195 land into the Innovation and Design District has been a priority for this Administration and Peter McNally has played a key role in these efforts,” said Rhode Island Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor. “We thank Peter for his dedication and his contribution to this work.”

“Peter brought a wealth of private sector experience to the Commission,” said Robert Davis, Chair of the I-195 Redevelopment Commission. “His insights into the world of real estate investment and development were a tremendous asset to the Commission and I am thrilled for him that he has such a great opportunity to return to that work. We will miss his expertise but we are fortunate to have talented individual like Caroline Skuncik able to step into the role.”

“I’m looking forward to this next opportunity but leave knowing that there’s a great team in place to continue to move the I-195 District forward,” said Peter McNally. “I want to thank Governor Raimondo for the opportunity to do this important work and Secretary Pryor for his collaboration and partnership over the years. Chairman Davis has a real vision for the developments that will thrive here and I am excited to watch great projects like the Wexford/CIC Innovation Campus expand in Providence.”
