- REAL ESTATE, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT & DEVELOPMENT
CPi Developers’ 50+ year tenure in San Rafael gives the real estate development company deep roots and a rich history, but for CPi President Stephanie Kirby Plante, the focus today is squarely on the future. Under Stephanie’s leadership, CPi Developers has expanded to acquire properties that speak volumes about vision: a commercial building located in the fast-evolving business hub of East San Rafael; the Kettleman City site that holds bragging rights as the world’s largest Tesla Supercharger Station, and a Starbucks location in the once sleepy town of Oroville – county seat of Butte County and now a community bustling with the $1B investment that is the Oroville Dam upgrade.
Stephanie is a San Rafael native who grew up in the family business, learning real estate acquisition, development and management from both her grandfather and her mother. Stephanie assumed the company presidency following her mother’s death in 1999.
The family tradition of civic involvement continues with Stephanie’s active role with the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce and other community organizations. She is the immediate past chair of the San Rafael Chamber, capping eight years of service on the board. She also sits on the Chamber’s Executive Committee and Governmental Affairs Committee and helped found the Chamber’s newest committee, the East San Rafael Working Group. In February she was elected chair of GP2040 Steering Committee for San Rafael’s General Plan Update.
Stephanie and her husband Chris are parents to two school aged children and supporters of groups including the San Rafael Library
