McKenney formerly served as president of capital markets for Apple REIT Six, Inc. until the company merged with an affiliate of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VII in May 2013. He served in the same capacity for Apple Hospitality Five, Inc. and Apple Hospitality Two, Inc.

From 1994 to 2001, McKenney was the senior vice president and treasurer of Cornerstone Realty Income Trust, Inc., a real estate investment trust that owned and operated apartment communities in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Texas. From 1992 to 1994, McKenney operated as chief financial officer for The Henry A. Long Company, a regional development firm located in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, McKenney served as a controller at Bozzuto & Associates, a regional developer of apartments and condominiums in the Washington, D.C. area.

“Capital Square Apartment REIT is pursuing a winning strategy by targeting quality housing options located in high-growth markets throughout the Southeast and Texas,” said McKenney. “This is a strategy I’m very familiar with and have helped successfully pursue for several other real estate investment trusts throughout my career. I look forward to helping deliver the same success to the stockholders of Capital Square Apartment REIT.”
