Meet Our Team

In 2021, Bart Dickson, Todd Woodley, and Daniel Griffiths merged their real estate firms Cobalt Development and DBDG, Inc to create the Cobalt we know today, a hybrid owner/developer + consulting firm. Fueled by complimentary expertise and decades of combined experience, Bart, Todd, and Daniel thrive in finding solutions and generating value for our clients, partners, employees, and investors.

The Cobalt team is composed of veterans from architecture, civil engineering, legal, construction, land use, and real estate financing fields. By uniting high-caliber subject matter experts from a broad mix of competencies, Cobalt tackles each project- wether for our own portfolio or that of our clients- with foresight and wisdom. Our work as an owner/developer strengthens the potency of service we provide to our clients, and our consulting work elevates the opportunities we pursue for our development portfolio.
