Andrew Gagne joins Blue River Development as its new Chief Financial Officer. Bringing a wealth of experience from his tenure as VP of Finance at Davidson Homes in Huntsville, Alabama, and his prior positions at Pulte in Atlanta and Nashville, Gagne is set to direct finances at Blue River Development (BRD).

As CFO, Gagne assumes responsibility for overseeing all finance and accounting operations, capital raising initiatives, and underwriting for Blue River Development and its affiliated homebuilding entities.

With such a multifaceted background, Andrew stands as a pivotal figure poised to navigate and excel within the dynamic landscape of Blue River.

An Atlanta native, Gagne’s return home is not just a professional transition but also a personal homecoming. “Atlanta is home, and it feels good to be back,” Gagne stated, reflecting on his new role and its significance to his family, including his wife and three young children.

In discussing his goals for Blue River Development, Gagne expressed his ambition to “provide financial support to the development company as it grows into the next phase, ensuring the right underwriting to mitigate risk while accurately presenting the potential upside of each project.” He is particularly excited about contributing to the growth of Blue River Communities and Blue River Lifestyle Communities, focusing on maximizing profitability while minimizing risk.

“Andrew’s appointment as CFO is a game-changer for us at Blue River Development. His expertise in finance and strategic planning is exactly what we need to navigate our expansion and maximize our investments,” states Michael Cooper, Managing Partner. “We’re setting the stage for unprecedented growth, and Andrew is the right leader to help us turn our vision into reality.”

The appointment of Andrew Gagne marks a significant milestone for Blue River Development as it continues to expand and enhance its financial and operational strategies to support its development projects and partnerships.

An Auburn University alumnus with both undergraduate and master’s degrees in accounting, Gagne is a Duluth, Ga. native.
