Denholtz Properties bolsters its central Florida presence with the hiring of Jordan Wean as Director of Leasing & Business Development in Florida.
Operating out of Denholtz Properties’ downtown Orlando office at 100 East Pine Street, Wean will be responsible for the execution of the company’s Florida market investment strategy, while assisting in identifying strategic acquisition opportunities within Florida and the broader southeastern United States commercial real estate market.
Wean will work closely with Denholtz Properties’ third-party brokers in the market to maximize top line revenue through a strategic leasing approach at the company’s 1.5 million-square-foot Florida portfolio spread across the Orlando, Tampa/ St. Petersburg and Ft. Lauderdale metro markets. Wean will also collaborate with the company’s Florida-based property managers to oversee the day-to-day management of each of the company’s assets in the state.
With an expanded on the ground presence, the addition of Wean enhances Denholtz Properties’ operational capabilities enabling the company to further capitalize on new growth opportunities while optimizing the firm’s existing investments through value creation and premier tenant service. Furthermore, Wean will be instrumental in Denholtz Properties’ expansion of its multi-tenant investment platform in the southeastern United States. Leveraging his deep experience and market knowledge, Wean will collaborate with Denholtz Properties’ executive leadership team and Director of Florida Acquisitions, JP Josephson, to identify and acquire prime office and industrial/flex properties in the region.
“With such a large portfolio in Orlando and our bullishness about its prospects, we knew that we needed to rethink how we approached the market,” said Stephen Cassidy, President of Denholtz Properties. “As we look toward the future, our Orlando office will serve as our local headquarters to give us the on-the-ground capabilities we need to expand our investment platform deeper into the market. We are confident that Jordan’s experience and knowledge will allow us to accomplish that goal and help us see continued growth in the years to come.”
Wean added, “I look forward to leading Denholtz Properties’ new Orlando headquarters as we continue to solidify our market position in Florida while expanding our presence into the rapidly growing markets throughout the region. I am honored by the opportunity to work with some of the real estate industry’s most respected, experienced executives and professionals to unlock the tremendous value inherent in these exciting markets.”
One of the real estate industry’s top young professionals, Wean brings deep experience in both leasing and investment to his new role with Denholtz Properties. Prior to joining Denholtz Properties, Wean served as a Leasing Representative for Highwood Properties and Director of Commercial Investment Sales for Franklin Street. His work throughout his career has received significant accolades including Marcus & Millichap’s Orlando Rookie of the Year in 2014, NAIOP Central Florida’s Rookie of the Year in 2014, and NAIOP’s Developing Leader Award in 2016. Wean holds a BSBA in Finance and a BSBA in Real Estate from the University of Central Florida.
