He works with the development and acquisitions teams to achieve growth goals through new investments, and he works to maintain a strong financial and organizational foundation.

Married to Andrea Oppenheimer, the couple have two children, Davis (5 ) and Levi (2 ).

“I am incredibly proud to be part of the 3rd generation working in our family’s business, and to be continuing the legacy that was started by my grandparents (Bernard and Shirley Halpern) and was built upon by my uncle (Jack Halpern) and mother (Carolyn Oppenheimer). I feel very fortunate to be carrying this torch alongside my cousins Benjamin Halpern, Cary Halpern, Chris Hoffmeister, and my brother Brad Oppenheimer,” he says.

Outside of work Oppenheimer serves as secretary and treasurer for the Chamblee Doraville Community Improvement District, and also holds (or have recently held) board and committee positions with The Epstein School, Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, Hillels of Georgia, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, and Birthright Israel Foundation.

“I’m very honored to be considered for a recognition like this and am grateful to have been chosen,” says Oppenheimer. “Many of the people who I look up to in the Atlanta Jewish community have previously received this recognition, and I hope to continue following in their footsteps.”
