Houston’s Ember Real Estate Investment & Development makes two corporate additions

EMBER Real Estate Investment & Development, a Houston-based private real estate investment and development firm specializing in land acquisition and delivery of master-planned communities, industrial and select residential projects, made two changes to its corporate hierarchy.

Sandra Ferguson has joined the company as director of marketing and Marco Galgo has been promoted to the position of project manager.

Ferguson joins EMBER with over 20 years of experience in real estate marketing. In her new role, she is tasked with identifying and executing key marketing objectives across all company assets, in addition to other responsibilities in collaboration with EMBER Director of Sales Kyle Mikulenka.

Prior to joining EMBER, Ferguson served as vice president of marketing for The Signorelli Company, a diversified real estate firm based out of The Woodlands, TX. In that role, she oversaw the marketing efforts for several business lines, including homebuilding, multifamily, land acquisition and development, commercial, and corporate branding. In addition to The Signorelli Company, Ferguson boasts relevant industry experience accrued from time spent at AIRIA Development, Toll Brothers, and Newland Communities.

Growing up alongside his family’s custom homebuilding firm, Galgo possesses residential real estate acumen as part of his very fabric. A former intern at Concourse Development – one of the firms that merged in late 2023 to establish EMBER Real Estate Investment & Development and most recently an EMBER Assistant Project Manager – Galgo is being elevated to the role of Project Manager, having established himself as a valuable asset with his work on The Grand Prairie and in broader company operations.

In his new role, he is spearheading efforts for the day-to-day execution of EMBER’s civil and amenity projects. Also, he is a liaison between EMBER and its multiple third-party consultants and works closely with its active builders, including David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes, Sitterle Homes, Village Builders, and Westin Homes.
