Christopher J. Coseo


Christopher J. Coseo‘s ventures in commercial and residential real estate over the past 35 years range from the development of office complexes and shopping centers to warehouse facilities, apartment complexes and land development.

Mr. Coseo has also been actively involved in the development of several apartment complexes nationwide, home development, retail centers, office properties, land development and warehouses. More recently, during the recession, Mr. Coseo took a major role in helping to rehabilitate decaying urban neighborhoods – through large-scale home renovation projects and related job creation throughout the US involving nearly 3,000 homes. In the last five years Mr. Coseo led his company into metropolitan Detroit’s multifamily market and acquired approximately 2,500 units. Over the last three years he has stepped back into the office market with acquisitions of distressed office complexes in California and Michigan. He is known for being responsive to changing economic conditions and for boldly buying or selling depending on the market climate.

In 2014, Chris partnered with his son, Calvin Coseo, in order to continue to build on the success that Coseo has enjoyed for years. According to Chris, “Calvin brings an energy and deal making acumen reminding me of myself at that age.”

Mr. Coseo was a founder of San Diego Trust Bank. Prior to selling the bank in 2013 to Pacific Premier Bank he was a member of the bank’s Loan and Executive Compensation committees, and chairman of its Nominating Committee, as well as being the largest shareholder.

For several years, prior to retiring from the board in 2010, Mr. Coseo held many positions on the board of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego, including Chairman. The club is one of the largest in the United States with 25,000 members and a $10 million budget.
