Director of Asset Management
As director of asset management for Affordable Equity Partners, Ellen Vossbrink oversees AEP’s portfolio of communities and works to maximize each asset’s operations and financial performance.
In 2010, Ellen graduated from the University of Missouri in Columbia, where she received a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in real estate, finance and banking. Ellen began her career with the JES Holdings family of companies in 2009 as a leasing intern. After her internship, she accepted a full-time position in leasing where she traveled throughout Missouri and Georgia leasing apartment homes to qualified residents.
Ellen later transitioned to asset management and financial analyst roles within AEP where she was given opportunities to: oversee a portfolio of apartment complexes; establish relationships with various investors, developers and management companies; structure current and upcoming investments; and close various real estate and equity transactions with developers and major investors. Prior to assuming her current role as the director of asset management, Ellen was promoted to a business development and government relations role where she worked closely with legislatures and other local groups on the advocacy of affordable housing.
With her vast experience in numerous roles throughout our family of companies, Ellen brings a strategic perspective to her work at AEP. Her commitment to growth is evident in her day-to-day actions and in her passion for the JES Holdings’ mission, and these efforts were recognized when Ellen was awarded the Michelle Sharp Outstanding Achievement Award in 2017. This award is presented each year to a deserving individual, chosen by directors and nominated by employees, who exemplify strong leadership qualities and dedication.
Ellen is also highly involved in her community and other areas of the JES Holdings family of companies as an active member on the JES Holdings employee engagement team, a member of the JES Holdings United Way Steering Committee and a volunteer for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbia and St. Louis.
