Chad M. Ellington


Chad Ellington is the owner and principal of Peak Development Group. He received his undergraduate degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University and his MBA specializing in Real Estate and Construction Management from the University of Denver. 

Following undergrad, Chad worked for a Colorado-based commercial general contractor and was the lead on several high-profile projects around the state including a 13-story condo building in Downtown Denver, the Green Valley Ranch Shared-Use K-8 School and Rec Center Facility, and a large mixed-use development in the mountain resort town of Breckenridge. That project, Main Street Station, won the 2002 ACE Award for “Project of the Year Over $40M.” 

From 2004-2014, Chad was then Vice President of Oakwood Homes and headed up their land acquisition and development group focused on high-profile residential and commercial master plan developments in Colorado, Nebraska, and Salt Lake City. During this time, he was also the lead as the “turnkey developer” on a $60M state-of-the-art school project known as the Evie Garrett Dennis Campus for Denver Public Schools in NE Denver. 

In 2015, Chad formed Peak Development Group and has been partnering with other like-minded developers on various developments ever since.
