East Nashville-based commercial real estate sister companies Hamilton Development, The Cauble Group and Parasol Property Management have filled four new roles.

According to a release from Tyler Cauble, founding president of the trio of businesses, The Cauble Group welcomes Patrick Foster as its newest commercial broker. Most recently, Foster worked as a residential real estate agent for Benchmark Realty. He also has a background in commercial contracting, project management and carpentry.

Adam Miller joins Hamilton Development as an investment analyst. Previously a financial analyst at Tractor Supply Co., Miller will primarily manage Hamilton's underwriting and analytics.

With more than 15 years of restaurant and mixology experience, Beau Gaultier will work as a hospitality consulting representative for Hamilton Development, following his time bartending in Louisiana and at Nashville's Pinewood Social. He will also serve as the beverage director and bar manager for one of The Wash's forthcoming concepts set to open later this winter.

Seth Webster, Tyler Cauble's executive assistant, has been promoted as Hamilton Development's transaction coordinator. Webster will now oversee each development by performing the administrative duties required during each transaction stage from contract to closing. Earlier this year, Webster joined The Cauble Group after serving as the production point and hospitality manager for Acme Feed and Seed.

"Each of these professionals possess a varied set of experiences, a strong sense of grit and determination, and an unmatched passion for the community they call home," Cauble said in the release. "We are incredibly fortunate to have these talented individuals on our team, and I'm confident their support will be paramount as we work to preserve East Nashville."
