IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, March 15, 2024 – Ball Ventures, LLC announced that after a distinguished 22-year career at Ball Ventures, Cortney Liddiard has decided to step down from his role as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”). Liddiard will work closely with the Ball Ventures leadership team and the Ball Ventures Board of Directors (the “Board”) through the transition to new leadership.   

“Cortney has been instrumental in founding and building Ball Ventures into what it is today,” said Allen Ball, Founder of Ball Ventures. “He has established BV as a leader in commercial real estate development and investing and is responsible for diversifying the portfolio into high growth areas such as operating company ownership, hospitality and healthcare. His passion for building strong partnerships and developing our people has allowed us to make a positive impact in the communities where we do business and has been critical to our success. I am grateful for his continued partnership, sincerely appreciate all that we have built, and thank my friend for all the years of dedication.”    

“Having the opportunity to work alongside Allen Ball and lead our team of dedicated employees has been the highlight of my professional career,” said Liddiard. “For the past 22 years, I have had the honor to work side by side with Allen and learn from his entrepreneurial spirit. Together we have grown Ball Ventures from a one-person family office to a substantial investment firm. Allen's entrepreneurial spirit is ingrained in the organization. His concern for people and the value a job has for an individual has left a lasting impression on me.”   

Liddiard continued, “I am particularly proud of Snake River Landing and the Mountain America Center.These projects have been Allen’s vision since 2001, as part of his desire to give back to the community that is home. I look forward to continuing to support Allen, the Board and the incredible BV team! I am reminded of a quote from Winston Churchill, ‘There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction.’ I am excited for the opportunities ahead, and for Ball Ventures’ next chapter, as well as my own.”

“The Board is grateful to Cortney for his stewardship of Ball Ventures and for creating a strong real estate development and investment management enterprise. Ball Ventures is well positioned to grow significantly and to deploy substantial additional capital in the years ahead,” said Rodney Goldstein, Chairman of the Board.
