Frank Schuler graduated with a B.A. from the University of Virginia in 1990 and began his career working five years for Xerox Corporation. Later, he worked at AOL-Time Warner as a Director of Operations, where he helped drive 10x revenue growth over a few years in the company’s Interactive Marketing Division. In 2002, Frank joined Matt Ornstein, a fellow UVA graduate and successful Atlanta-based developer, to create a real estate investment firm. As President and Chief Operating Officer of Ornstein-Schuler Investments, Frank directed operations and led the company’s acquisition and sale of several hundred million dollars of investment property.
In 2016, Frank transitioned his role as Chief Operating Officer of Ornstein-Schuler and founded a nonprofit coalition called Partnership for Conservation (P4C), a diverse group of stakeholders seeking improvements with the conservation easement legislation that would prevent any limited abuses of this important part of the tax code by codifying a set of best conservation practices, but also would ensure land conservation is encouraged, viable, and maximized for future generations. Frank served as P4C’s Board Chairman for three years as the organization grew to over 700 members in 45 states and developed relationships with a diverse group of conservation stakeholders in both the private and public sector.
Frank is also a member of Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a global network of 12,000 business owners, The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., as well as Business Executives for National Security (BENS), a group of 500 American business leaders helping address national security reform and resilience. He enjoys golf, hiking, music, and spending time with his family and two well-trained dogs.
