Centrell Reed is a Houston-based entrepreneur, business leader, coach, speaker, and philanthropist. Through all these activities, she is passionate about building foundations beneficial for growth, wellness, and prosperity. As a real estate developer, Centrell understands the importance of building a solid groundwork that can serve as a platform for future growth. For her, this tenet holds true both literally and figuratively.
Centrell cherishes mentorship and coaching opportunities that allow her to share her knowledge and experiences about this critical process of building. She also knows this process starts at the foundation, and has seen the power of connecting with people where they are and coaching them to work toward where they want to be. From the Ground Up is about harnessing this process for the benefit of individuals: considering a person in their entirety, and putting strategies in place to improve their life structure, health, and happiness. Ultimately, it’s about building a better you!
Throughout her life, Centrell has retained a focus on community philanthropy. She shares her time and contributions with family, friends, and several organizations. As a member of the Board of Directors for Girls on the Run Greater Houston, she helps build confidence and healthy habits in young girls while unlocking their limitless potential – all through running activities. Running has always played a part in Centrell’s personal workout regimen, so this role is a natural extension of her mentorship efforts to promote the overall health and wholeness of an individual. Girls on the Run also builds a strong foundation for young girls early in their lives, helping them recognize the power of setting goals and working toward the best version of themselves.
Holding a Bachelors of Science in Management/Finance, an MBA, and a Project Management professional certification, Centrell has nearly 20 years of progressive success in management roles across various industries. These leadership experiences have prepared Centrell to pursue her passions in service of her greatest endeavor yet: building her own businesses.
In addition to her professional experience, Centrell has had a personal interest in real estate since childhood, when she can remember watching model homes being built in her neighborhood. She was fascinated by the building process in its entirety, from the foundation, to the framing, through staging and furnishing. For Centrell, it was amazing to witness the progress as an empty plot of land was turned into something as beautiful as a house, where she and her friends would play until it was sold.
These experiences as a child led Centrell to start CReed Global Development Group, LLC. CReed Global is a real estate development and acquisition company established to provide quality real estate developments through acquisition, expansion, diversity, and growth. Centrell’s company focuses on fostering relationships with a commitment to excellence in building economically strong communities.
For Centrell, it is no secret that we grow every day. She believes that as individuals, we should always strive to build upon yesterday’s lessons to achieve the goals ahead of us. Rather than waiting for the perfect circumstances, Centrell has always believed in making it happen - doing the hard work starting from the ground up, and building a better you in the process!
