Investing in the Future

1880 Capital was founded by University of Southern California alumni and supporters to connect the Trojan Family with opportunities to grow wealth through commercial real estate vestment. As a Trojan-founded and focused commercial real estate private equity firm, we are committed to delivering preferred returns to fellow Trojans by leveraging our extensive experience and relationships with industry-leading CRE professionals to acquire commercial real estate assets with high upside. Members of our team have expertise in commercial real estate acquisition, banking, regulatory compliance, and contract negotiation. Let’s meet the founders of 1880 Capital:

Our Team

Antoine Harden

Chief revenue officer

Antoine became a member of the Trojan Family in 2018 when he chose USC over other top-ranked MBA programs. He quickly immersed himself in the culture and traditions that make USC a one-of-a-kind institution, earning recognition as one of Poets & Quants “Best and Brightest of 2020”. Antoine graduated from the USC Marshall School of Business in 2020 and brings over 20 years of information technology sales leadership experience. Having spent much of his career working with large government entities, his contract negotiation and relationship-building approach to sales are invaluable attributes that he brings to the team.

Heather Francine

Chief experience officer

A life long member of the Trojan Family, Heather is the force behind the 1880 Capital Tailgate that takes place every football gameday on Trousdale Parkway just south of Tommy Trojan. Heather is a member of “Town and Gown”, the oldest women’s philanthropic organization supported by friends of the university, for the benefit of student scholarships and the improvement of the Town and Gown facility and grounds.

Heather has been a licensed real estate agent in California for 18 years and brings over 30 years of project management, customer service, and client development to the team with a focus on excellence in the details. Heather serves as Head of Investor Relations and is responsible for cultivating relationships with investors, strategic partners, and centers of influence. Heather’s connection to real estate spans decades and is strengthened with strong family ties in the industry. She got her start at an early age, learning the ins and outs of the industry alongside her father as he built an extensive personal portfolio of properties in southern California.

Jim Resha

Chief Investment Strategist

As a die-hard USC football fan and season ticket holder since 2002, Jim bleeds cardinal & gold. In 2021, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of earning a degree from USC when he graduated with an MBA from the USC Marshall School of Business. With 35 years of commercial and industrial real estate, finance, and senior management experience, Jim serves as the Chief Investment Strategist for 1880 Capital. He has been a licensed real estate agent since 1982 and became a California-licensed broker in 1984. Jim is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and currently a member of the Institutes International Activities Committee. CCIMs are recognized experts in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis. He was a two-term President of the Greater Southern California Chapter of CCIM. Jim is also a member of ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centers), along with NAIOP, an organization that provides advocacy, education, and business opportunities by connecting members in a powerful North American network in the commercial real estate development and investment industry. Jim’s knowledge and experience in the deal-making process and relationships with industry players are a competitive advantage for our investors and the firm.

Ron Johnson

Chief Operating Officer

Ron has loved USC since before he could spell “Trojans”. Ron achieved a dream deferred when in 2020 he completed his MBA from the USC Marshall School of Business. Due to his experience as a banking industry executive, Ron brings over 20 years of operations, regulatory compliance, and commercial banking leadership experience to the team. Ron serves as the Chief Operating Officer for 1880 Capital and oversees vendor relationships, our investor portal, relationship management systems, and the general operations of the company.
