Amrit completed his undergraduate studies in History and Archaeology while attending St. Stephen’s College in Delhi, India. In 1988, he came to Washington University in St. Louis to pursue a Master of Business Administration degree. During his studies, Amrit realized the convergence of two passions: his love of historic and architecturally significant properties and his mathematical analysis skills. It was during this time, he met the then Amy Harris who was to become his wife and business partner. During his career, Amrit has earned a reputation as a vanguard of urban renewal while compiling an impressive roster of redevelopment projects throughout metropolitan St. Louis and Davenport, IA.

Amy Gill

Chief Executive Officer

The old saying “Behind every great man there’s an even greater woman” doesn’t accurately apply to the CEO of Restoration St. Louis’ wife and high-power teammate Amy Gill. We’d rather say, “Beside every great man there’s an equally great woman.” Amy, a graduate of University of Kentucky in Political Science, has served as full-partner and hands-on manager for every development project undertaken with husband Amrit since their first in 1990. Amy personally supervises construction and the architectural and design details for their residential and commercial properties by working closely with architects and contractors on current projects. Gregarious by nature, Amy is a natural when it comes to navigating public, political, and press spheres.
