THE OPPORTUNITY

Do you consider yourself an expert in property and asset management using your natural ability to listen and communicate effectively? Do you find yourself excelling when you’re given the autonomy to be a market expert and budget owner? When you need to, can you easily charm and “read” people and situations effectively?

We are looking for a Vice President of Property Management to oversee our Houston industrial portfolio and team. The ideal candidate can manage multiple projects and people at a maximum performance level.

Are you driven by accuracy and working independently? Can you easily influence people to accept change, new ideas, and unexpected circumstances? Do you enjoy completing a variety of assignments at one time?

If no one is better at converting a negative situation to a positive one, if you can perform at a high level in a fast-paced and ever-changing work environment, and if you are an amazing communicator with a knack for property and asset management—let’s talk.
