The folks at Bisnow caught up with Charter Holdings CEO Ray Washburne for 10 minutes, which, when you are a billionaire, is like an eternity. Ray is the national finance chairman for Chris Christie for President, and previously for the Federal PAC Leadership Matters for America. He served two years as the finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, was co-chairman of Texas for Mitt Romney, and national finance chairman for Tim Pawlenty for President. I did not know he also taught, serving as an adjunct professor at the SMU Cox School of Business. Ongoing involvement and board memberships include the World Presidents’ Organization, Veritex Bank, The Real Estate Council, International Council of Shopping Centers, Urban Land Institute, SMU O’Neil Center Advisory Board, SMU Tower Center and Baylor Health Care System Foundation.

See what I mean? Jump on over to Bisnow for the full interview, and see what Ray is ready to invest in next: “We’re looking for something that becomes available for some reason,  always on the lookout for new things to invest in. It really depends on what becomes available. We’re in a booming economy in DFW; things are pretty fully priced. There’s no particular area that has more opportunities than another.”
