Ownership - A graduate of Capital University, with a dual major in Finance and Economics, Brad Howe began his professional career in the investment arena, creating a track record of success for notable firm Merrill Lynch. He moved onto Arlington Bank where he worked his way towards commercial lending and was key in doubling the bank’s portfolio through savvy investment choices.

With a strong investment foundation, Brad Howe decided to begin venturing out on his own as a real estate investor and developer by purchasing several multi-unit residential properties throughout Columbus. Following the lead of successful entrepreneurs, profits were reinvested into accumulating additional properties including a 16-unit apartment building located north of Columbus’ popular entertainment district The Short North. This investment led Brad to strongly consider The Short North for other investment opportunities.

Wanting to greatly expand his portfolio, Brad Howe gathered an investment team to purchase 2,200 acres of the Bob Evans Hidden Valley Ranch in Gallia County. This purchase made Brad one of the largest landowners in the area.


The following year, Brad and business partner John Bonner formed JBH Holdings, LLC. JBH Holdings first acquisition was a mix-use, 3-story building in the Short North, followed by the purchase of an 18-unit apartment building in Grandview Heights and the securing of land to create the high profile 8-story project known as The Jackson on High. The Jackson on High, labeled an “ icon” by the Victorian Village Commission, has become Columbus’ most highly anticipated condominium project in years.

In addition to his dual degrees from Capital University, Brad Howe has obtained his Series 7 License and Life, Health, Property and Casualty Insurance Licenses. He also received the Series 63 Blue Sky Law designation.
