Modern Pioneers: A Quarterly Speaker Series
The Changing Face of Napa
3022 St. Helena Highway, North, in St. Helena
Event Description

Please join NorthBay biz and Freemark Abbey for our second session, which will focus on the changing face of downtown Napa. From a sleepy town just a few years ago, development leaders have infused new life into the area, making it a thriving center of activity—and it only gets better from here.

Our speakers:
As managing member of Zapolski Real Estate, LLC, Todd C. Zapolski has 30+ years of experience in real estate investment and development. He also is principal of Zapolski Holdings and ZRE Advisory Group, and has offices in North Carolina and California with interests in a diverse portfolio of retail, office, and multi use real estate. His newest venture is The Shops at Napa Center, which will transform the retail experience downtown.

Keith Rogal of Napa Redevelopment Partners is director of Rogal + Walsh + Mol and has been
active in private and public sector efforts related to smart growth and environmentally sustainable
development throughout his career. He founded the Carneros Inn in 1997 and is an active supporter of a wide range of charitable and public service organizations. A resident of Napa, he’s currently spearheading redevelopment of the 150-acre Napa Pipe property into a mixed-use riverfront neighborhood and is also involved in efforts to repurpose the facilities at Copia.

Brenda Speth has been president of Napa Valley Publishing and publisher of the Napa Valley Register since July 2005. She’s a long-time Rotarian and serves on the board of directors for the California Newspaper Publishers Association and Queen of the Valley Medical Center Foundation.
