Nate Green and Chris Marshall have been close friends since their childhood, having grown up as next-door neighbors in the coastal town of York, Maine. Their entrepreneurial spirit was evident even in their younger years, as they were always coming up with new business ideas and ventures aimed at improving people's lives.
After pursuing separate career paths in the corporate and real estate sectors during and following college, they reunited to tackle the national housing shortage exacerbated by the pandemic.
Nate spent 12 years establishing himself in the Southern Maine real estate market as a developer and builder, concentrating on transforming underperforming buildings into homes and constructing new ones. During this period, he added over 100 housing units and gained extensive knowledge about the industry and its regional intricacies.
Meanwhile, Chris devoted the same 12 years to his corporate career, eventually retiring from it in 2022 after a two-year term as a Vice President of Commercialization at MARS Corp. Throughout his corporate journey, Chris acquired valuable insights into managing large-scale organizations and the diligence required to scale a business once the core competencies are in place.
With their complementary skill sets, Nate and Chris bring a remarkably diverse range of expertise and experience to Salt Marsh Capital.
The pair specializes in high-quality, market-rate, and affordable housing solutions, which they believe will address the needs of their communities. Their projects have matured over the past few years, and they are now prepared to provide housing for real people in Maine.
