Allen W. Warren

Allen W. Warren, Founder

Allen W. Warren grew up in the North Sacramento Community of Del Paso Heights and is the product of a loving hard working family that instilled in him the value of hard work. Mr. Warren is a graduate of east bay Hayward with a Bachelors of Arts degree in political science and a minor in business administration. Upon graduation, Mr. Warren joined Dean Witter (Morgan Stanley) as a successful stockbroker.

 

In the fall of 1990, Mr. Warren entered on a new journey as a real estate developer founding a company that he oversaw as CEO/President for 25 years, New Faze Development Inc. Mr. Warren’s success is due in part to his commitment to developing, promoting and investing in smart-growth and mixed- use urban revitalization and Greenfield residential and commercial projects and his ability to provide quality, affordable housing projects and a variety of residential and commercial projects throughout Northern California over the past 21 years, including higher-priced, custom homes and senior housing, worth more than $1 billion dollars.

 

The company’s success has been recognized by numerous organizations and publications and has received multiple businesses of the year awards. In addition to New Faze’s recognition, Mr. Warren has personally been recognized for bringing people together to solve complex issues receiving the Unity Award from the Greater Sacramento Urban League, American Leaderships Exemplary Leadership Award and in 2005 was recognized by Sacramento Magazine as one of the 50 most influential leaders in the Sacramento region.

 

Mr. Warren has been a leader and innovator in turning areas long neglected into viable neighborhoods with sustainable value. The great recession of 2008 had a devastating effect on real estate and the economy; New Faze however was able to successfully navigate through the historical downturn that had devastated the real estate industry. Mr. Warren has positioned New Faze to take advantage of the resurgence in the real estate market and benefit from the overall improvement of the economy; which demonstrates Mr. Warren’s leadership skills, creativity, willingness to meet challenges head on, and tough decision-making.

 

In November of 2012, Mr. Warren successfully ran for a seat on the Sacramento City Council. Currently, Mr. Warren represents the Second District as it’s locally elected Councilman and was named Vice Mayor of the City of Sacramento earlier this year.
