About

Professional Summary

My background is in retail leasing of all kinds of retail shopping centers, primarily Regional and Super Regional Malls, along with Life Style Centers across the United States. I spent over 28 years with one of the nationals largest privately held shopping center developers as a leasing representative, then Regional Director/Asst VP of Leasing, and finally Director of Leasing.

My position required me to work with every department in the company to coordinate objectives, report to the owner, set and reach leasing budgets, hire and train leasing staff, and vacancy reduction, all the while improving the productivity of the centers, thus driving up rents. My specialty is lease negotiation, problem solving, and using creativity to get the deals done in a win-win manner. In addition, I have worked for new retailers looking for different locations amongst various states.

Accomplishments

Proven professional negotiator with strong results. I have a CRX, SCLS, and other designations from the ICSC.
