A Perot Company


Danny Ellis

Senior Vice President

Danny manages the acquisition, entitlement, underwriting, and financing of land for residential development. He is also responsible for joint ventures with third-party developers and the management of certain investments. Since joining Hillwood Communities in 2008, Danny has been instrumental in the investment of dozens of properties representing more than $1 billion in value at sellout.

Prior to joining the company, Danny served as assistant director of development for Faison & Associates in Washington, D.C. He started his career as an investment banking analyst in Houston with UBS Investment Bank and Dain Rauscher Wessels, now RBC Capital Markets. Danny’s extensive background in both investment banking and multifamily/commercial real estate not only equips him with strategic financing insights, it also continues to shape his approach to responsible development.

Danny, a Houston native, holds a BBA in finance from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and an MBA from the University of Virginia’s Darden Business School in Charlottesville, Virginia. He is a member of the Urban Land Institute and serves on the ULI Community Development Council. In his spare time, Danny enjoys playing golf (he has one of the prettiest swings in the whole company), running, traveling and spending time with his wife and two boys.
