Stuart Denyer
Co-Founder and CEO

For more than 15 years, Stuart Denyer has been passionate about investments due to the high energy and fast-paced nature of the industry. He took his passion and applied it to the real estate investment space when he co-founded New Western in 2008.

As co-founder and CEO of New Western, he and his business partner, Kurt Carlton, completely revolutionized the way residential real estate is bought and sold. New Western transformed the typical real estate transaction into something that takes a matter of days to accomplish rather than weeks, months, or years.

The New Western portfolio of companies encompasses New Western, HomeGo, and Sherman Bridge Lending. Each of these divisions focuses on addressing a specific need. Together, they help homeowners move on from difficult properties while providing opportunities for local real estate investors to improve their communities.

In his current role, he works with the leadership team to make strategic decisions with the portfolio of companies. He also manages various departments within each brand and oversees company resources.

Originally from England, he came to the U.S. in 2001 to work in commodities trading on the Chicago and New York Mercantile Exchanges. Denyer received a bachelor’s degree in business and management studies from St. Mary’s University in London. He also has his real estate and mortgage licenses.

In his spare time, Denyer is on the board of the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Worth, and really enjoys spending time outdoors and watching his children play sports.
