Keith Rogal

Keith has been active in private and public sector efforts related to smart growth and environmentally sustainable development throughout his career.  He received recognition from then-Vice President Gore for work in this realm, and was one of the signatories of the Charter of the Congress for the New Urbanism.  A founder and general partner of Rogal + Walsh + Mol, Keith’s role is that of the director. 

Keith is a resident of Napa, where he is currently spearheading entitlement and planning efforts for the 150-acre Napa Pipe property, a redevelopment proposal to transform a brownfield industrial site into a traditional mixed-use riverfront neighborhood, targeted to house the community’s workforce and empty-nesters. 

He was the founder of The Carneros Inn, conceived of the project in 1997 and managed all aspects of its development, from initial land assembly through to its operational launch and marketplace acceptance as a distinctive and highly regarded luxury resort.  Keith was personally responsible for that project’s complex and multi-year entitlement effort.  He was also responsible for the creation of the project design concept and oversaw the management of site planning, engineering, architecture, landscape, interior design professionals and construction project oversight.  Keith has special expertise in consensus-building planning processes, with strong experience managing programs requiring extensive public participation. 

Keith has been an active supporter of a wide range of charitable and public-serving organizations in Napa and San Francisco.  But among all the varied causes to which he contributes, the Napa 4-H Junior Livestock Auction is a particular favorite.   Prior to entering the real estate industry, he worked with his family’s travel management firm, in which capacity he managed on-site operation of large group travel programs in more than 30 countries. Keith graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in History and Literature from Harvard, and earned a master’s degree from the Yale School of Management.
