Prior to joining Probitas Partners, Kincaid was the executive vice president of Los Angeles-based AVG Partners, a private investment group with real estate holdings and investment interests in the US and abroad. At AVG, Kincaid was involved in finding and executing deals as well as asset management and operations. Prior to AVG, Kincaid worked with a regional real estate developer. She also has a legal background and has worked with a law firm advising clients on mergers and acquisitions and intellectual property.
