Florida East Coast Industries (“FECI”), one of Florida’s oldest and largest full‐service commercial real estate and infrastructure companies, announced the addition of Michael Reininger as Executive Vice President of All Aboard
Florida, a wholly‐owned subsidiary of FECI.
Reininger will lead all development initiatives for All Aboard Florida—an intercity passenger rail system that will connect South Florida to Orlando. He will be based out of FECI’s Coral Gables headquarters and report directly to FECI President Vincent Signorello. “Mike has uniquely applicable experiences in transit station planning, project management and branding,” said Signorello. “His experience with the redevelopment of Denver Union Station translates perfectly to our station development program in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. At AECOM he circled the globe managing large and complicated infrastructure projects. At Disney he practiced the art of synthesizing commercial development and branding. Mike checks every box on our wish list for this executive position.”
Reininger brings nearly three decades of real estate development experience, having served in senior management roles with such notable companies as AECOM, Walt Disney World, MGM Resorts, and The St. Joe Company. He has spearheaded a diverse range of projects including nationally recognized mixed‐use transit oriented developments and large‐scale, international entertainment resort destinations.
As managing partner for Union Station Neighborhood Company in Denver, Colo., he orchestrated the master planning for the Denver Union Station transit‐oriented development project through a private‐public partnership structure. The expansive project is expected to create one of the country’s largest multi‐model transit hubs, and involves the redevelopment of 30 acres of downtown Denver real estate and four million square feet of
mixed‐use space surrounding the historic station.
Reininger is affiliated with the Urban Land Institute, the American Institute of Architects and National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture, Design Specialization from Texas Tech University, and executive certifications in resort and hotel master planning, financial engineering and business management from Harvard University School of Design, Harvard Business School, and Wharton School of the
University of Pennsylvania.
