FOUNDER AND OWNER
Vincent A. Riggio
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”
Vince Riggio founded Trinity Development Group in 1996. The commercial development firm focuses on revitalizing problem properties others have ignored or overlooked. Vince’s success lies in his ability to work collaboratively with local governments and neighborhood residents to navigate politics and align each property with the needs of the community.
Vince knew he wanted to be a real estate developer at the age of 14 after watching his father redevelop an apartment complex in St. Louis, MO. He was fascinated by the interdependent relationship between people and property. By the time Vince was 19, he had earned his broker’s and real estate licenses and was selling residential and income-producing properties on the beaches between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, FL.
Prior to founding Trinity Development Group, Vince spent six years as a land broker for Lee Arnold and Associates, representing sellers in distressed property transactions. He was one of two founding members of RAM Development Group, a southeast development firm. Additionally, Vince led the retail expansion of 20 drug stores including Eckerd, CVS, and Walgreens; five Checkers fast-food restaurants; and 18 Olsen Morgan Tire stores.
Vince is committed to responsible development that serves communities, investors, the environment, and the larger human condition. He and Trinity give generously to Boy Scouts of America, Partners Against Domestic Violence, Wellsprings Living, Georgia Boy Choir, Young Life, Southern Land Conservation Land Trust, Habitat for Humanity, and City of Refuge.
Vince is passionate about serving his community and enjoys mountain biking, snow skiing, and flying. He and his wife of 29 years, Cinda, spend time in Colorado and Atlanta, GA.
