Bobby Turner has had a busy couple of months. His Turner Impact Capital christened a charter school in Washington, D.C., opened several new health clinics in Florida, and acquired new apartment buildings for affordable workforce housing in San Antonio, Houston, Atlanta and Las Vegas.

Oh, and the peripatetic Turner secured investor commitments that should push the firm’s assets above $1 billion across five funds.

“What I like is that they’re really doing it,” investor Liesel Pritzer Simmons of Blue Haven Initiative said about Turner’s firm at last month’s SOCAP conference. “There’s a lot of talk and then there are folks who also move money, move it quickly, and do it with a lot of integrity and impact.”
