Power 100: Todd Hitt


Founder & CEO, Kiddar Capital

“We’re a true private equity company with $1.4 billion under management and very little outside capital. Right now $120 million of that is directly at work in U.S. Housing,” is how Hitt describes the alternative asset management firm he started in 2007. The emphasis on built world investing is no coincidence, A native Washingtonian, Hitt is a member of the family behind Hitt Contracting, the construction company founded by his grandparents in 1937. His private equity firm is headquartered in Falls Church, Va. with additional offices in Houston, Palm Springs and London, giving them a national and global presence in the alternative investing world. Hitt’s assets span real estate, venture, credit, energy and sports. A noted social impact investor who tracks job creation along with financial returns at his firm, he is a frequent commentator on TV news and finance programs where he often calls for immigration and education reforms to counteract the labor shortage, reduce inequality and drive industrial and GDP growth. “We need to put people where the jobs are,” he says, “and jobs where the people are.”
