Steve Kothenbeutel Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer
Steve Kothenbeutel brings more than 14 years of experience in the commercial and residential real estate industry with expertise in acquisition, development, consulting and brokerage-related services. He is currently the project manager of the Kapolei Business Park master plan project encompassing 178 acres of land in Kapolei, the secondary urban center of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The first phase of the master plan was completed in September 2015 with lots now available for sale.
Steve's experience includes working with government agencies such as the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) to secure a lease award from the GSA for a new 13,400-square-foot Kapolei Social Security Administration building. Under Steve's leadership, Avalon was able to build the facility from the ground up and meet the targeted occupancy date of 15 months after the lease was awarded. The SSA in Kapolei now has its own facility with ample parking and access points that make the SSA more accessible to its customers.
Prior to joining Avalon Development Company, Steve was a Market Analyst for Coldwell Banker Commercial Pacific Properties where he served as a leader in real estate research and marketing. Steve managed and performed the marketing, valuation, and due diligence processes of multi-million dollar real estate investments in Hawaii.

He has consulted for clients such as Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate, Hirano Brothers, Bank of Hawaii, Niu Pia Farms, and Queen Liliuokalani Trust. He is a candidate member of the Hawaii CCIM Chapter, the prestigious CFA ® Institute, and the Hawaii District Young Leaders Council for the Urban Land Institute.
