After winning multiple contracts last fall to manage and lease millions of square feet of metro Atlanta office space, Lincoln Property Company Southeast has announced the hiring of property management and engineering veterans to service the assignments.
In November, Equity Office awarded the company contracts to manage 3.3 million square feet and lease 1.9 million square feet in metro Atlanta. The management assignment covers buildings in Atlanta’s North Fulton and Northeast submarkets, and the leasing assignment is for the North Fulton buildings.
Lincoln has hired Michael Hoffer as senior property manager for the North Fulton portfolio. Hoffer, most recently senior manager of the 55-story, 1.26 million-square-foot Bank of America Plaza in Atlanta for Cousins Properties, will be responsible for the management of 15 office buildings totaling 1.9 million square feet in the submarket.
Pam Padgett has been hired as a senior property manager for the Northeast Atlanta portfolio. Padgett, who began her real estate career at Lincoln and was most recently vice president of property management for Crescent Resources, will oversee the management of 1.4 million square feet of office space concentrated along Sugarloaf Parkway and Crestwood Parkway in Gwinnett County. While at Crescent, she was in charge of a portfolio that included up to 9 million square feet of Class-A office, industrial, retail and mixed-use properties.
Lincoln also announced the hiring of Jeff Clayton as director of engineering. Clayton was most recently vice president of engineering and operations for Cassidy Turley and will provide overall technical support for all Lincoln-managed properties in Georgia. Clayton is a Certified Energy Manager, a LEED Green Associate and a LEED AP for Operations and Maintenance.
“We couldn’t be happier about the highly talented and deeply experienced team we have assembled to deliver exceptional service on these new assignments ,” said Tony Bartlett, senior vice president at Lincoln. “Any time you’re growing your business, it’s cause for celebration but the addition of these key individuals is what really excites me. These new additions to the Lincoln team will allow us to deliver great service to tenants, value for our clients and provide opportunities for growth in the future.”
