As the president of Case & Associates Properties Inc. in Tulsa, Scott Case oversees the company’s operations in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma in the Tenth Federal Reserve District, as well as projects in Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas.

Case, who joins the Oklahoma City Branch Board of Directors after serving for a year on the Kansas City Fed’s Economic Advisory Council, sees his company’s broad footprint and more than 40 years in business as assets in helping the Bank understand varying economic conditions and policies.

“I was happy to have served on the Economic Advisory Council,” Case said. “That was a great experience. As a director, I’m honored to be part of the group and just have a seat at the table and be able to share my experiences in the apartment, investment and management industry.”

Case & Associates was founded in 1983 by his father, Mike Case. Today the company manages more than 30,000 apartment units and about 1 million square feet of commercial property.

“I started working for the company in 1990,” Case said. “We are a full-service real estate management and development company. A lot of my time is spent on maintaining the trajectory of our growth, whether on the development side or through acquisitions. We have 800 employees, and we focus on taking care of the customer and instilling that in all of our employees. We have some of the best people in the industry.”

Case holds a certified property manager designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management and holds real estate broker’s licenses in Oklahoma and Texas. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in management.

Case said that being asked to serve as a Reserve Bank director was “very humbling.”

“I was flattered and honored to serve in whatever capacity the Federal Reserve was asking of me,” he said. “We watch monetary policy fairly closely in our business, so I’ve always kind of been fascinated with that piece of it. I was just happy to be able to share the knowledge and information that I’ve gained over the last 33 years. I see it as part of my civic duty.”

He added, “There’s so much data that’s available to the Fed and the economists there…The perspective that I hope to bring to that is some behind-the-curtain information that the data might not reveal…kind of what happens in the trenches.”

Joining the Board of Directors also opens an avenue of learning.

“I hope to learn more about the ins and outs of how the Federal Reserve Bank operates and the policies and procedures they put in place to keep our economy as stable as possible,” Case said. “The number of brilliant people, employees and peers in various states and industries will be very valuable to me, and there will be lifelong friendships not only at the Fed but in the corporate world as well.”
