Scott W. Hawley

Managing Director

Although Scott W. Hawley is the Managing Director for Kaplan Residential Atlanta, his real aspiration is to climb all 54 of the 14,000-foot mountains in Colorado. No wait. He’s already done that. In addition to co-authoring the book, Museums of Atlanta (Westholme Publishing 2006),

This leaves Scott plenty of time for executing the strategy of the firm and supporting its leadership team, responsibilities for which he has notable and proven experience. Before coming to Kaplan, Scott directed Greystar's client-facing strategy in the Southeast. He supported the development and acquisition efforts of no less than 70+ clients. In aggregate, they owned 52,000 apartments, valued in excess of $8 billion, which were operated by Greystar's Southeast Region. And just to be sure that his career included well-rounded variety, Mr. Hawley served as the Executive Sales Director for National Accounts at CoreLogic SafeRent.

Scott holds an M.B.A. from Emory University, and he completed the University of Pennsylvania’s Dual Degree Program, graduating with a B.S. in economics from the Wharton School of Business and a B.A. degree in international relations from the College of Arts and Sciences. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Mr. Hawley spent four years on active duty in the United States Army as a platoon leader and a logistics officer. He is also a graduate of the United States Army's Airborne School. During his high school years, Scott lived on Rhein Main Air Force Base in West Germany and attended Frankfurt American High School graduating in 1988.  

In keeping with Kaplan Residential's long and proud tradition of community service, Scott serves on the Board of Directors for Atlanta Apartment Association. He is a founding member of the Atlanta Beltline's young leaders group, The AB67. He is also a founder of the affinity group Emory Alumni Working in Real Estate which has grown to over 700 members. And he serves on the Chapter Advisory board for Phi Delta Theta's Pennsylvania Zeta chapter at the University of Pennsylvania.
