Rahim serves as Founder and Managing Director of Woodvale, a leading alternative investment firm providing solutions for clients along with strong and consistent returns for investors. Woodvale’s deep experience in special purpose real estate development, equity capitalization and debt re-structuring creates a single source solutions provider for the needs of today’s commercial real estate market.
In addition to Woodvale, Rahim has founded two other successful businesses that continue to make a measurable impact in the industries they serve. In 2011, Rahim founded American Fueling Systems (AFS) a national leader in the fueling industry, providing gasoline, diesel, compressed natural gas and Liquefied Natural Gas to the transportation and energy sectors. He has taken AFS from an idea to a nationally recognized leader in the energy and fuel marketplace.
In 2016, Rahim created Three Ring Studios (TRS) and is now the Chairman of one of the largest Studio production campuses in Georgia’s growing film and TV production industry. With over 250,000 square feet of sound stage space and over 100,000 square feet of office space, TRS has positioned itself to be a premier facility for film and television productions of all types. TRS offers an impressive array of sound stages, state-of-the-art post-production facilities and world-class support services amid an inspiring, historical setting.
These successful businesses have afforded Rahim many opportunities to be recognized for his efforts by industry and civic leaders across the U.S. In 2011, Rahim was named one of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Top 40 Executives under 40 and in 2012 Georgia State University honored him with the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award. In 2015, he was recognized as the Businessperson of the Year from the largest Chamber organization in the South East, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Rahim has been published in many publications including Forbes and Success magazines, sharing his business insights. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration Degree and Executive MBA from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University.
Rahim’s business credentials only play a part in the impact he has generated. His philanthropic work list is extensive focusing on projects that benefit those most in need in the areas of education and personal development. He readily provides his knowledge and expertise to projects and public speaking opportunities. Currently, he also sits on the Board of Directors for the J. Mack Robinson College of Business along with the Center for International Business, Education and Research (CIBER).
I have had the opportunity to work with Rahim for the past three years. His energy and vision combined with his ability to turn vision into reality, separates him from the pack! He maintains the ability to dream, which will continue to fuel his success! It has been a true pleasure to learn, work and be inspired by him!
Director of Technology Talent and Leadership Training
Rahim and his company (AFS) are passionate and extremely knowledgably about alternative fuels. Their expertise covers diversifying fuel types for fleet owners through the constriction and operation of alternative fueling facilities both dedicated and public use. I would highly recommend them for any public or private entity needing alternative fuel consultation and services.
Babush, Neiman, Kornman & Johnson, LLP
Rahim is one of the most genuine, effective and passionate leaders I know. He leads AFS with tenacity and aplomb, and always finds time to be of great assistance to the Robinson College. In addition, Rahim is a gifted motivational speaker who is able to captivate his audience with his authenticity and candor.

I’ve known Rahim for over 5 years and have worked with him on many different opportunities that he was pursuing with the Charania Group. He has a great mind for real estate and has been an excellent client through the years.
I had the pleasure of working with Rahim and his company, BC Investments, on a hotel development in the Southeast US. I found Rahim very committed to the project, working for the benefit of the joint venture and always considerate of new practices and ideas. Rahim’s knowledge of the capital markets, his banking relationships and strong work ethic are testimony to his successful career. I hope to work with Rahim again in the near future.
