RVi is very excited to announce that Chip Mills, Project Director, has been selected for the Leadership Austin Essential Class of 2015. This elite program brings together leaders with diverse backgrounds from all over the Greater Austin area for an intensive nine-month curriculum. The Essentials Class is the flagship Leadership Austin program, focusing on regional issues, development of leadership skills, and building relationships with others equally committed to the community.

Chip has over a decade of experience in land planning and real estate development for large scale mixed-use communities as well as urban real estate and economic development projects. Chip has worked at RVi for a total of seven years, including four years prior to his term as Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce in Zachary, Louisiana. He re-joined RVi in 2012 and has since assumed a leadership role in many key projects, including Wolf Ranch in Georgetown, Belterra in Dripping Springs, and Cordillera Ranch in Boerne.

“I am honored to be part of this year’s Essentials Class. I’m really looking forward to working with and learning from this great group of people,” Chip said.
