Bev Crossen is a commercial developer and entrepreneur. She founded each of her businesses with the sole purpose of enriching the lives of the people of her community. She is always looking for ideas (especially in her travels) that she can make happen in her community. She recognizes that being different and thinking outside the box is a gift and never lets other people’s lack of imagination get in the way of that.
Her passion for development projects spans across 12 years and includes several downtown buildings, a co- working space, a cafe, and her latest project; the 38,000sf Federal Building in Downtown Tupelo – The Fed (apartments and commercial space).
She is always inspiring others and often when collaborating with fellow entrepreneurs she reminds them to never forget that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Never stop challenging yourself!
Bev Crossen is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the bFederal Reserve Board of St Louis (Memphis Branch), Community Development Foundation (Tupelo/ Lee County), and the Downtown Main Street Association (Tupelo, MS)
