John Nichols | BND Development


After graduating in 1983 from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science degree, John Nichols worked in commercial and industrial construction for 12 years. He then started his own custom home building company, Bedford Homes, and served as president for over a decade. In 2008, John became the fourth partner at RCI Development. Since that time, the company has been responsible for projects that have helped revitalize Fort Wayne through the re-construction of a deteriorating city landmark into high end residential condos with office/retail usage and the brownfield creation of two premier sports facilities that bring in tens of thousands of visitors to the city each year.  In 2010 RCI merged with BND Commercial to form the most successful full service commercial real estate company in northeast Indiana.
