Scott Barber

real estate | network | sales

Scott began calling Seattle home nineteen years ago when he started his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington. In 15+ years of commercial real estate experience, Scott has represented clients ranging from ambitious Seattle start-ups to international corporations. Outside of work, Scott thrives on the quintessential Pacific Northwest experience: the intersection of good friends, good food, and good, physical activity in beautiful places.

Tommy Trause

member interaction | business development

Tommy’s love of the hospitality industry emerged in high school and led him to Cornell University’s School of Hotel and Restaurant Management and on to hone his hospitality chops at the Bohemian Club and Grove. In the ten years since, Tommy has utilized and grown his expertise with Club Corp, where, in his most recent role as VP of Innovation, he introduced and championed Seattle’s Collective as a new concept for the company and oversaw its launch. He recently joined evo and evolutionProjects as Head of Hospitality and Ecosystem Development. Tommy is at home in Seattle and San Diego, and he seizes as many moments in the great outdoors as possible, whether climbing, skiing, mountain biking, or running through the city.

Alex Mondau

sustainability | social impact | finance

A passion for placemaking has been the common thread throughout Alex’s educational and professional endeavors. After earning his undergraduate degree from Pomona College, Alex spent four years in real estate, followed by five years managing a restaurant with an emerging locavore and sustainability focus. He then returned to school, receiving an MBA in sustainable business from Presidio Graduate School, which he put to immediate use for five years as a founder and CFO of two start-ups, successfully raising multiple rounds of investment funds. In 2017 he shifted his focus to getting the Collective launched in Seattle’s South Lake Union. When not in the city, you can find Alex playing in or on water in all its states—snow, ice, white, and salt—in a beautiful place, with good friends.
