DeLisa Guerrier

CEO & Founder
Storyville Gardens Theme Park


DeLisa Guerrier is an accomplished real estate executive, entrepreneur and philanthropist with expertise in community building and provides much of the vision for the company’s direction and choice of projects.

A graduate of historic Tennessee State University and a native of Northern California, she entered the real estate market in Nashville shortly after the 2008 crash and immediately turned her attention to the entrepreneurial side of the field. Mrs. Guerrier is one of the few Black women in the state licensed as a general contractor for commercial, residential and industrial development. She prides herself on being on job sites and overseeing every aspect of each development the company undertakes.

Mrs. Guerrier guides Guerrier Development’s vision for communities as well as driving its social mission to invest in emerging neighborhoods. She is an active member of Nashville’s philanthropic community, focusing on the needs of children. Her success in real estate has allowed her to give back in significant ways to improve the lives of Nashville area young people.

But it is her latest project that has set the bar high and is earning her praise from Nashville community leaders who understand the significance of what she is undertaking. As CEO, founder and majority stakeholder in Storyville Gardens Theme Park, Guerrier is breaking ground next year on a $300 million family destination. It is expected to create 2,260 jobs in the construction phase and over 1,700 jobs created in the park upon completion.

The mission for the theme park came to DeLisa in 2017 when she became aware of the alarming literacy statistics in Tennessee and nationwide. She wanted to find a way to bridge the gap and make reading and learning fun to make a real difference in the foundation of the lives of children. She is the driving force behind the mission and the company’s entry into the hospitality vertical and has forged global partnerships at the executive level across the world.
