Bill Guthrey isn’t a fortune teller, but he does read tea leaves, figuratively if not literally. “As a company that develops master-planned projects, KDC is reading the tea leaves to determine the future path of growth. We’re reading the market and creating places that will meet present and future demand.”
Bill’s primary responsibilities at KDC include the marketing and management of KDC’s Land Ventures, which include over 500 acres of prime office, industrial and mixed-use land positions located throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and nationally. He focuses on establishing joint ventures with land owners who need a partner with master planning, development and land marketing experience.
“I love my job. I’m always meeting new people, and the product is always evolving. Every client has a unique challenge, and I’m lucky that I can be part of the solution.”
Bill joined KDC in 1995 to market and develop the site of the former Greater Southwest International Airport/Amon Carter Field in Fort Worth, Texas. That project, CentrePort Business Park, is now home to some of the nation’s largest companies.
All in all, Bill’s experience at KDC encompasses the development and leasing of office, industrial and data center projects totaling over 2.5 million square feet and the development or sale of over 1,000 acres of land.
“What’s fun about development is watching engineers, architects, and planners get together in one room to answer a question or fulfill an existing client need. It’s fascinating to see how form follows function.”
A devoted family man, Bill makes his home in Dallas with his wife, Suzan, and teenage daughter, Josie. His son, Reggis, works in oil and gas, and his other daughter, Grace, is studying architecture.
Away from the office, Bill is active in his church and involved with mentoring youth in a faith-based setting. He also enjoys tennis, golf, and volunteering with Builders of Hope, a non-profit housing developer that delivers quality affordable housing to needy families in Dallas. His dream is to work for a non-profit and help people with their housing needs.
