Mark Windhager


Years at RedPeak: 16

Years in Colorado: 25

Mark Windhager’s more than 25 years of experience in the residential apartment industry began, quite literally, from the ground up. While attending college at Texas A&M, Mark spent summers in Houston as a framer building houses. “Yes,” he says, “it was very hot.” In his senior year, he was offered the opportunity to work for an apartment developer, and from that point on, was hooked. He started his career with Trammel Crow in Dallas, and jumped at the opportunity to run their Denver office in 1992.

Mark has worked with many industry leaders, serving as Regional Manager and Operating Partner for Trammell Crow, Operations Manager with Archstone, and Vice President and Officer for Legacy Partners before co-founding RedPeak in 2001. As CEO, he has been associated with the successful development, re-positioning, and lease-up of over 11,000 units and is most proud of starting a company that now supports over 100 families. 

It is, in his opinion, the people at RedPeak, their commitment to upholding the highest standards, and the fun, creative environment they’ve created that separates RedPeak from others in the space.

Since 1994, Mark has been actively involved with the Apartment Association of Metro Denver (AAMD), held several director level roles, and served as AAMD President in 2006. In 2015, Mark was inducted into the inaugural Apartment Association of Metro Denver's Hall of Fame. RedPeak is the only company to have two people inducted into this prestigious group. Currently, Mark serves a Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Apartment Association (CAA).

In Mark’s spare-time, he can be found on the sidelines of his children’s various athletic pursuits or heading to Breckenridge with his family to spend time on the slopes.

Favorite Thing About Colorado:

I love the four seasons and the ability to golf and ski all in the same day.
