Mark Windhager

Founder & CEO

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 went on 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. Now as CEO, he has been associated with the successful development, repositioning, and lease-up of over 11,000 units and is most proud of starting a company that now supports over 100 families. It is his opinion that the people at RedPeak, their commitment to upholding the highest standards, and the fun work environment they’ve created that separates the company 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, he was inducted into the inaugural Apartment Association of Metro Denver's Hall of Fame. Currently, Mark serves as a Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Apartment Association (CAA).

In his spare-time, Mark 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.
