Paul began his commercial real estate career in 2003 and focused exclusively on industrial tenant representation in the greater Atlanta area. During this time, he worked for The Staubach Company, which later merged with Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), and held various leadership positions within the supply-chain and logistics practice group. In 2010, Paul created Blackbird™, JLL’s proprietary and patented geospatial intelligence program. The development of Blackbird opened the door to a broad range of real estate transactions across all product types and disciplines. Prior to joining KBC, Paul left brokerage for five years to work for Brookfield’s growing logistics platform as Global Head of Corporate Development. This unique role brought together the complementary efforts of business development, marketing, branding, communications and innovation under one umbrella in an effort to respond more effectively to customer needs in ever-changing markets. Additionally, Paul assisted with acquisitions, dispositions, asset management, and internal forecasting while sitting on the senior team for both operating platforms – IDI Logistics (US) and Gazeley (EU). Ultimately, the call to work closer with the end-user led Paul back into brokerage and to KBC Advisors. This well-rounded experience, in a wide variety of global and local markets, yields a dynamic perspective focused on solving his client’s most complex real estate needs.
On a personal note, Paul enjoys coaching his kids’ teams and just last year led his son’s 2nd grade intramural basketball squad to a perfect 8-0 season. An experience he took too seriously, given his historic disappointment as a lifelong Atlanta area sports fan.
