John A. Cooper, III leads Cooper Communities, Inc. as Chairman of the Board of Directors.  Cooper Communities was founded by his grandfather in 1954 as the John Cooper Development Company.  The company started developing and marketing Cherokee Village in north central Arkansas as a resort-styled community with lakes and golf courses targeting vacationers and pre-retirees as a value-oriented, dream retirement lifestyle.  John's father led the company as its president from 1966 to 2002 and chairman until 2013.

Cooper Communities was a pioneer in the large-scale retirement community development business, developing and marketing three significant communities in Arkansas - Cherokee Village, Hot Springs Village and Bella Vista Village, altogether comprising 75,000 acres and today, home to more than 50,000 residents.  The company later added projects in Missouri, Tennessee, South Carolina and West Virginia.  In total, communities developed by the company include 26 golf courses, 25 lakes, over 1700 miles of roads and have more than 112,000 owners from all over the country.

John worked for the company during summers in various capacities and after college joined the company full time as a financial analyst.  In 1998 he was named Assistant to the President and became Executive Vice President in 2000.  He was later promoted to President in 2002 and became Chairman of the Board in 2019.  Among other projects, John led the Company’s acquisition, development and operation of Glade Springs Village in West Virginia and Creekmoor, a 1,000 acre golf community in Raymore , Missouri.  As president and chairman, John oversaw the company's principal businesses:  land development, home building, resort timeshare and commercial real estate.  John also guided the company's divesting of its home building and timeshare business units and growth of its commercial real estate company, Cooper Realty Investments, Inc.

John grew up in Bella Vista, attended college in Memphis, Tennessee and graduated in 1996 from the University of Memphis with a BSBA in Marketing.  John has lived in Pinnacle more than ten years.  John has served on the boards of numerous property owner's associations including Glade Springs Village POA.  John has also served on the boards of the following corporate and community organizations:  Mildred B.
